Grand soft days, shy blue skies and temperamental temperatures do not a sartorial statement make. With that, colour therapy is the easiest way to put some serotonin back into the season.

Saturated, positive and utterly unrepentant, this season’s ROYGBIV references put the kibosh on mood killing neutrals. Neon green with navy, yellow with beige, hot pink with black – find your power hue and let it brighten your day.
