So we’ve had four consecutive sunny days in a row which means it’s definitely summer now, right?
With summer comes summer fashion, and this year is all about pattern and colour clashing. It’s something I’ve always been a little scared to do until I had a personal shopping session at Topshop. Personal Shoppers are much more experimental and know what works, and it gave me the confidence to go out and try it myself.
It’s like summer comes around and all rules go out of the window. Socks and sandals is no longer a big fat nope. You can wear spots and stripes at the same time. And there’s endless colour combos to mix and match, be it red, pink, green, blue or yellow (or all of them!)
60% of this outfit is from Primark, which means you defo don’t need to break the bank to shop the look! Winner.

A summer staple this year is a rainbow tee. It comes after that fabulous Daisy Street rainbow jumper sold out on ASOS in AW17. I got this tee from Primark for £2.50 (you read that right!). It’s got multi-coloured horizontal stripes and says ‘blah’ on the front. We all love a slogan tee these days!
I wore the tee under my New Look dungarees (was a wee bit too warm, but we all make mistakes!). I think this look could work equally as well with jeans, denim shorts or a cute button up skirt.
Now for the clashing bit. Rainbow tops are a super easy place to start if you want to start colour clashing. You can mix up the colours of all your accessories and they will all still match your top. I went for this pink corduroy baker boy hat that was £2 in the sale(!!), with red heeled booties and my yellow circular bag which you’ve probably spied a few times before.
For me, summer fashion is about having fun and being creative. I think colour clashing is a simple and effective way to let your hair down and experiment a little. I think the brighter the better and it’ll instantly cheer you up when you catch your colourful self in a reflection.
