What’s up guys? Hope you’ve been enjoying Spring so far?
The time to box all our wool, felt & thick garments in exchange for thinner colourful clothing is here! For some however, wearing colour can be very tasking. This is where I come in to help. I naturally enjoy incorporating colours & prints in my outfits therefore I will be sharing simple ways in which you can do so for this season.

This my dear friends is the entry level for styling prints. Accessories such as scarves, bags, belts, earrings e.t.c are a fun way to add colour to your looks in small dosage.

I’m down for playful  trims to add personality to outfits. Choose garments with accents of print around the hem of dresses, skirts e.t.c or straps around the sleeve of a simple top, if committing to a full print look is too much.

Hope you learnt a few tips from this post that could help you add colour to the wardrobe as the weather gets warmer.
