The Colour Trends Coming to an Instagram Feed Near You

·2-min read

Perhaps to make up for the lack of colour in both our lives and our wardrobes over the last 18 months, the fashion world has brought in the sartorial big guns for A/W 21 and delivered a spectrum of saturated shades that wouldn't look out of place at a primary school. Weary of the neutral and monochrome palettes that have pervaded recent seasons, big-name designers including Prada, Bottega Veneta and Versace sent cobalt blue, Kermit green (yes, it's a thing), Barbie pink and fire-engine red down their runways. It was the injection of feel-good fashion endorphins that we all needed.

As always, where high-end brands go, the high-street follows, and as we enter September, we've started to see eye-popping brights trickle into the new-season edits of Arket, Zara and H&M. While some people might instinctively shy away from the extraversion of this colour trend, rest assured that they will pair surprisingly easily with the neutrals in your wardrobe. A cobalt-blue jumper will look unendingly cool with a pair of beige trousers, while a pair of bright-green heels is a surefire way to liven up a muted cocktail dress.

Of course, if you're a colour lover, you can always go all out with a bright suit (ideal for an autumn wedding) or tonal separates à la Marianne Smyth. A vibrant winter coat is also an easy way to add interest to your autumn/winter capsule—keep an eye on M&S for plenty of colourful outwear. So without further ado, I present the colour trends coming to an Instagram feed near you. Scroll on to see more.
