The hue and cry over this season’s catwalk colours isn’t without merit. Flame orange, spicy Saffron, Tanager turquoise, Beetroot purple and neon yellowgreen have lit up the Pantone chart, causing a cataclysm of emotions from cool, calming and comforting to strong, stalwart and self-assured. Want to improve your mood? Feel it, wear it, live it. It’s that simple.

ORANGE AND BLUE:

Bold, optimistic and unapologetic, this colour clash makes the perfect entrance in blazer and trouser duo. Just add a white t-shirt.

BROWN AND GREEN:

Salute the 70s like Marc Jacobs, Gucci and Victoria Beckham with this eracentric colour pairing. Opt for unexpected accents in pistachio or Biscay green.

PINK AND PURPLE:

Channel ‘80s exuberance with fun fuchsia and regal purple rendered with puff sleeves or exaggerated shoulders.

TURQUOISE AND RED:

The sharp optic contrast of this coupling gives serious throwback vibes. Add a slick of red lipstick for eyepopping vintage appeal.
