Brighten your day & POP colour back into your wardrobe!

Winter may be just a few squares away on our calendars, however this should be no reason for us Shopistas to fall in a fashion slump, or worse still, contract Wardrobe Fashion Flu (see previous post regarding symptoms). To keep winter and WFF at bay, an instant precaution is injecting bright POP colour into your look. 
Sleuth wonders why there is always this assumption that as soon as the temperature drops, so must our use of colour and vibrancy in our wardrobe. Come winter, black and grey seems to inundate our everyday life, and suddenly your mood is feeling as misty as your wardrobe. So chant after me.....Bring back the brights! Bring back the brights!

Whether bold singular pops of colour or fun bright prints, a splash of hue will have you feeling top of the pops in no time at all, and hey, you may even inspire those around you to get in on the rainbow action.
