OK! Fashion Editor reveals how to wear the colour clash trend this spring

Rainbow brights can’t be missed as one of the biggest spring trends at the moment. If you’ve taken a trip down to your local high street or shopping centre most stores are a sea of happy hues as brands have embrace ‘dopamine dressing’ for yet enough season.

Well, after the past few years we’ve had, and let’s face it, we really haven’t been able to have fun with fashion for a while- it’s definitely time to try and get your style mojo back.

I honestly think wearing colourful clothing is just the way to do so. In fact it has been proven that wearing certain colours can actually have a positive impact on your mood.

Plus, getting out of your comfort zone when it comes to clothes can also tigger a release of dopamine- it’s win win really.

For a look that could have fallen straight off the SS22 catwalks try wearing your brights head-to-toe, styling various shades of one hue, or clashing your colours.

It’s time to rip up the rule book too. Lilac and lime are dreamy duo, and who said blue and green can never be seen? It’s simply nonsense, now is the time to enjoy colour, trust me you’ll feel good for doing so…

Probably one of the chicest colour combos around, pink and green. Do you agree? This look isn’t for the faint hearted but wow it will make a style statement.

If you are yet to pick up a pair of bright boots- these knee-highs are a great investment. Matching the hue to your dress will give you a longer, leaner appearance..

If you are new to the colour game and don’t want to clash, why not add pops of white or chose tonal pieces like a lighter handbag.

This sunshine yellow suit from Zara looks way more expensive than it is- bold suits were all over the spring catwalks and we can’t get enough of them.

There are no rules when it comes to colour clashing- in fact we have ripped up the rule book and are trying new pairings.

A colour block dress is another easy way to embrace the trend if it’s out of your comfort zone – just pick out one colour to match your coat or accessories to. Simple!

Wide leg trousers are a great foundation for colour blocking and are all over the high street this season. If I were going to invest in one colour to be on trend i’d go for green.

This grass green shade is surprisingly versatile. Here I have styled with a red tunic but they would go with pretty much any colour. A purple jumper? A yellow blazer? Even a lilac shirt – you won’t regret buying a pair.

Lilac and lime are a match made in heaven and are one of the newer combo’s i’ve been embracing simply for the fact these hues are enjoying a moment in the fashion spotlight.

Layering a bright blazer over a glam dress is smarter for dressier occasions, but of course you could try this look with chunky sandals too.

Trousers, Never Fully Dressed, £89 here

Yellow in it’s brightest form can be a difficult shade to match with other items in your wardrobe. However, this season paired with lilac it takes on fresh appeal.

Colour clashing can also be used as a clever slimming technique. For example pop your most vivid hue, here yellow, on the part you want to draw most attention too.
