How To Do: Fashion Colour Pop for a Low-Budget

Last Thursday I showed you to highlights of London Fashion Week, February 2012: Day 5. Unfortunately I won’t be covering day 6, due to the fact that it is all men’s (I’m not very interested in menswear). So today, I’m going to show you how to get the Fashion Colour Pop look, for a low-budget.

Colour Pop is all about making one item of your outfit ‘pop’ or stand out from the rest of your outfit. It is similar to colour blocking, but slightly different. The key to getting this look right is to only have one coloured item, and have all the rest neutral – or nearly neutral (Shoes with brightly coloured soles, or bras with neon straps add to the look). Oh, and of course it works much better if you use electric colours. For example, if I had a neon yellow pleated midi skirt (its bright and bang on trend), I would pair it with a grey marl top, and nude heels and clutch. By doing this it makes the colour stand out.

Here’s how you can get the look for a low-budget:

Skirt РNew Look РPink Chiffon Pleated Midi Skirt (£19.99)
Mesh Jumper РH&M Р(£14.99)
Heels РTopshop РSULTRY High Platform Courts (£65)
Bag РALDO РSimler Cutch Bag (£35) РAvailable from Asos.com
Sunglasses РTopshop РFlat Top Plastic Sunglasses (£16)

This look rocks many trends. The peach colour is really trendy right now, and so are the nude accessories. For a little added extra, cut the skirt up at the front, creating¬†a scoop, and cut another scoop down at the back – and you have the asymmetrical trend too! Roll the skirt up slightly if you can’t do midi very well, and slick hair into a high ponytail. Finish off with tribal jewellery if you feel like it, or just keep the look simple for ‘It Girl’ cool.

Check out my blog next Monday, where I will be showing you How To Do: Fashion Colour Pop for a High-Budget.
