Trending Colour Pops Pre Spring’17

Hi Everyone,

Colour pops are featuring large in new Spring collections – see Mango, Zara, Topshop to name a few. There’s something so bright and cheerful about them there’s no wonder that we reach for them at the drop of a hat. Added benefit too is that you can already start wearing them in cooler temperatures, and pretend it’s Spring.

Last week I went out and daringly bought the brightest coloured sweatshirt ever. Feeling quite nervous about this new purchase I went home and then started playing around with how to wear it.

The first time wearing my new sweatshirt in town with my hubby…I knew I had to get him used to the new look piecemeal – smile. So I started by wearing it as a scarf and teaming it up with my little Rebecca Minkoff bag from Zalando.



A few photos in I could feel he was really warming up to the look so…under the pretence of getting cold I popped it on properly!

What do you think was the bigger shock? The lovely Addidas sweatshirt or the fact that I decided to climb into a closed shop window?

I think the poor man  decided to give up at that point and simply concentrate on taking arty type photos.

I love the hood on it – perfect for when the wind begins to blow and I’ve forgotten to wear a hat – oops you’re not supposed to think of the practicality of fashion are you?

Anyhow to cut a long story short it’s Milan Fashion Week this week. I’m so excited and  have decided this will be one of my looks!

Hi! I’m Yvonne, a 40 something (wink) Kiwi, living in Zurich. I love fashion, travel, shopping and food – believing chocolate will cure almost anything!

  1. This is so fun Yvonne and I love how you warmed up first by wearing it as a scarf. How creative. That Adidas sweatshirt is so cool and I can’t wait to see pics from when you head to Milan. I will definitely be trying colour pops this Spring too. Thanks for the heads up!


  2. Love the bright colours!
    Over the way you introduced the new colour in via th scarf and bag:)
    I have a bright pink jacket and just love it-bit hot for it in our summer temps at present though

  3. I love color pops for Winter in particular. But seriously for every season, a color pop is always welcome. Love how chic and fun all your pops of orange look. The booties, bag and Adidas sweatshirt are all great. This is a chic street-style look!

    I would love for you to join my latest linkup from this week. It is a special celebration post too.

    Happy Sunday! <3 Ada.
