If your outfit is mainly dark, think about adding a layer of colour to bring your look to life. Think about the types of bright vests, tanks, bold patterned camisoles that you can layer into your outfits to pull your ensemble together.

If you’ve boldly ventured into the trend of colourful printed trousers then these are an excellent item to match with neutral or darker outfits to put personality into your style.
