9 Colourful Outfits I'm Going to Try This Spring

I'm so over snow. It's pretty and everything but once you get on to day seven of not being able to wear anything out the house except a head-to-toe duvet coat and all of the thermals, I get a little fatigued from it. I would much rather be wearing bright colours and fewer layers, to be quite honest, that make me think about the spring rather than grey overcast days that quite frankly make all of us feel pretty dismal.

Once again, Instagram has provided a wealth of outfit inspiration to get us started. At the brightest look-at-me end are rainbow-inspired dresses and clashing block-coloured suits. But if you're more about a subtle approach to adding colour, and need to ease out of those classic wintry vibes, then a hot pink cardigan here or a brightly-coloured shoe there, is the way forward.

Trust me when I say, I have a feeling that this spring/summer is going to be all about bright colours. Not only does it line up with the trends that are coming up (joyful dresses? Yes please), it will no doubt boost our moods. So, basically it's a complete win. If you're not sure where to start, keep scrolling for all the colourful outfit inspiration you're going to need this spring, then find where to shop some of the bright pieces we love right now.

Style Notes: There is clearly nothing quite as joyful as a rainbow-style dress. Bold, multicoloured looks is definitely a great way to start a spring wardrobe.

Ashish Striped Sequined Chiffon Halterneck Maxi Dress (£2255)

Style Notes: When we're back wearing smarter clothing for the office, I plan on going for contrasting colour blocking. One bright hue on top; a different one on the bottom.

H&M Jacquard-Weave Jacket (£35)

Bottega Veneta Wool-Twill Straight-Leg Pants (£750)

Style Notes: Joyfully-coloured dresses, such as this blue and yellow one, are just the easiest way to add colour into your wardrobe.

H&M Calf-Length Dress (£40)

Style Notes: Sometimes it takes a while to extract yourself from the wintry wardrobe stylings. So, to just add a splash of colour, try a green cardigan and yellow trainers.

Gucci GG-Jacquard Belted Wool Cardigan (£1750)

Adidas Originals + Ivy Park Ultraboost Neon Rubber and Suede-Trimmed Primeknit Sneakers (£170)

Style Notes: Daffodil yellow trousers with a turquoise top, plus a grass green bag? Spring in an outfit.

Bottega Veneta High-Rise Wide-Leg Wool Pants (£940)

Bottega Veneta Cotton-Blend Mesh Cardigan (£940)

Bottega Veneta The Shell Leather Tote (£2275)

Style Notes: This is exactly the sort of outfit I want to wear when it starts getting warmer and we're nearly in the summer. Loose-fitting fabrics in bright colours.

Alex Perry Kristen Satin-Crepe Shirt (£950)

& Other Stories High Waisted Culottes (£65)

Bottega Veneta Cassette Padded Intrecciato Leather Shoulder Bag (£2370)

Style Notes: Too attached to your jeans? That's OK, us too. Add a fun pink cardigan on top and a yellow bag to give your denim that spring twist.

H&M Short Cardigan (£9.99)

Shrimps Dante Faux Pearl-Embellished Satin Tote (£272)

Style Notes: Stripes on a jumper and a pair of yellow trousers is a great option for those slightly chillier spring days.

Diane Von Furstenburg Striped Brushed Knitted Turtleneck Sweater (£135)

Etro Cropped Wide-Leg Trousers (£616)

Style Notes: Want to go for a truly statement-making look? Try a coat in a green or yellow and add a bright blue pair of shoes.

Saks Potts Shearling Collar Coat (£1457)

The Attico Lace-Up Sandals (£526)
