Looking at colourful street style looks can be a great way to get a dose of colour therapy. If your wardrobe is looking a bit drab, a dose of colour may just be what the doctor ordered! This season is the time to be experimenting with colour. Putting together a bright outfit combination may require a certain eye for colour, but once you’ve mastered it there’s no turning back. Take a look at these colourful street style looks that you could easily recreate.
Colourful street style looks can be spotted all year round, you just have to keep an eye out for them! While spring and summer are traditionally the seasons for colour, that doesn’t mean that you can’t dress colourfully in winter. This wonderfully colourful outfit was snapped by Lee Oliveira. The colour pop knit layers are anchored with a neutral brown clutch and black opaque stockings. You could easily try out this colour combination any time of the year.
If the idea of mixing and matching too many colours scares you then you can always just stick to one eye-catching colour. We spotted this bright blue look over on the Topshop Tumblr. Matching coordinates are a big trend right now so head to any of your favourite fashion stores to see what they have on offer in terms of matching separates. Then, complete your outfit with an extra layer or accessories in the same colour scheme.
Sometimes a dash of colour is all you need to make an outfit pop. Gina was spotted on the streets of New York by Elle’s street style photographers wearing this statement skirt. She teamed her vintage patterned skirt with a plain white tee, black Topshop ankle boots, and a navy tote bag. A bright red lip completes this eye-catching daytime outfit.
Try your hand at colour blocking by teaming together colours from opposite sides of the colour spectrum. Alice was snapped by Amar Daved for Elle magazine wearing a bright yellow Acne sweater and royal blue Topshop pants. She streamlined her look with blue shoes and added a statement necklace. Try recreating this look in summer with a yellow t-shirt and blue tailored shorts.
Try teaming pastels and brights together like Chantal from the blog Cocorosa. Take a leaf out of her book and wear hues in the same colour spectrum. She teamed a bright pink cardigan with pastel pink jeans and broke up the look with a crisp white shirt.
Sometimes all you need is one stand alone colour to really make a statement. We spotted this street smart look over on the Stylesight blog. Team a coloured dress, in this case a bright orange number, with edgy leather accessories for a grungy daytime look.
Work a breezy summertime look in a colourful sheer maxi skirt. We spotted Shereen in this look on Refinery 29. She teamed a bright maxi skirt with a cream tank top and an eye-catching turquoise necklace. A tan handbag and flat sandals complete this relaxed summer outfit.
Really stand out in a colourful sequinned skirt. Make it daytime appropriate by choosing a skirt in a demure cut and by teaming it with slouchy or structured tops. James Newman photographed this blue and green look in New York. Here, the suede texture of the biker jacket and slouchy top balance out the glitziness of the sequin skirt.
Team your brightest clothes with your favourite denim pieces for an effortlessly stylish look. Wear your bright fuzzy knits with boyfriend and skinny jeans in winter or team a colourful t-shirt with denim cut-offs during summer. It’s a look you can recreate and re-interpret using pieces in your own wardrobe.
A little bit of colour can go a long way, and right now we’re loving big doses of colour. These are just a few colourful street style looks to take inspiration from. Which of these looks do you like best?
