Up Close & Colourful


End of Summer Season | Fashion & Beauty

It’s that weird time of summer, not quite the middle of summer and not quite the end either. If you are familiar with UK weather, you can easily switch from a winter coat in the morning and by the afternoon go home in your swimming suit. It can be that changeable.

I also feel the same way when it comes to wearing colour. My go to safety colour is dark greys or black, even I get a bit tired of opening my wardrobe and seeing only winter colours staring back out at me.

So, whenever the sun appears I like to wear bright accessories to make those dark basics in my wardrobe not so drab or uninteresting.For those cooler evenings, I still like to layer up with a thin Jumper. I had my eye on this Zara bright red skinny knit jumper for some time. I think it not only looks good as a pop of colour in late summer but can easily transition into the autumn/fall.Jumper – By Zara Knitwear – Similar

A great way to still enjoy the end of summer is wearing bright and colourful nail polish. If you shy away from colour in your clothing, adding a pop of colour on your toes can not only brighten up your style but is safer than buying a whole new summer outfit so late in the summer season.

The slight orange tone of this liquid lipstick makes any late summer tan glow.

Give me some of your examples how you would introduce a pop of colour into your summer style?
