If you haven’t already, there is one thing to adjust and direct attention to in fashion its colour. Designers have made good use of colour just about everywhere, from colour blocking, multi-tone colour-ways or head to toe full out outfits based on one single colour. Burberry Prosum Autumn/ Winter 2013 collection previews a whole lot of metallic vibrancy just to demonstrate the extent of eccentric colours to play with. Replacing there well known mute neutral coats and shirts for busy prints and metallic foil fuchsia pinks, rich mint greens and royal blues. Logically, these aren’t the most wearable appearances for the ‘normal’ 9-5 working person however the foundation to meditate on is to make the move on bold colours every now and then effectively but to stay cautious before the purchase that there is always potential to attempt the latest trend and still fail.
Have a look at Burberry’s take on the trend and some of PAUSE’s high street alternatives.

Little by little there is an enthusiastic impact of loud, in your face, vibrant colours from the designer collections on fashion runways to trending high street retailers paired off with more grounded reliable clothing. We at PAUSE support the punchy rainbow accents but simultaneously want to point out that before the rampage of Power Rangers take the streets, take inspiration from the, less is more theory. Feature the colours! If one isn’t completely keen on the transition, trade accessories for vivid alternatives. Try combinations of staple pieces in subtle tones and textures for something easy and simple. Observe the right occasions to express the fullness of the high volumes of vibrancy.
