Creative Ways to Infuse Bright Colours into Your Wardrobe

by Laaibah Amjad

When it comes to fashion, the power of colour cannot be overstated. Elevating your outfits with vibrant hues adds personality and flair, we’ve got some ingenious ways to incorporate colours into your wardrobe.

Colour Blocking 

Something more modern, master the art of colour blocking. Mix and match complementary or contrasting colours strategically to create visually striking combinations - think blue and yellow, or pink and purple.


Blazers are such a timeless and versatile piece and investing in a colourful blazer can instantly transform your look. Opt for bold shades like cobalt blue, emerald green, or fiery red  to make a statement. Pair your vibrant blazer with neutral tones for balance to ensure it becomes the focal point of your ensemble. 


A key foundation for a good outfit that's often overlooked, Shoes are an easy way to add a pop of colour. Look no further than Daniela Uribe’s Italian-made footwear.

Their footwear collection boasts bold, contrasting colours and unique patterns, ensuring that every step you take becomes a statement of individuality and  style. Whether it’s vibrant red pumps, comfy trainers, or classic boots, it's easy to embrace a spectrum of colours in your looks through shoes.



Elevate your look with carefully chosen accessories that introduce bursts of colours that you can take off at any time. Scarves and hats are great choices in the winter, bonus points if both are matching. Statement jewellery also serves as a fab accent, allowing you to experiment with different hues without committing to a full colour palette. Trending at the moment, a pair of bold tights would be a great choice, inspired by Blair Waldorf. 


Introduce patterns for some playful personality. A little less serious, to make your wardrobe feel fun and you, consider anything from the wacky to the classic - like stripes or florals.


An indisputable timeless choice, stick to one colour all over. Select varying shades of the same colour to create a sophisticated and streamlined appearance. This technique excludes elegance, simplicity is key. 


Harness the versatility of a denim shirt. Acting as a neutral canvas, a denim shirt complements various colours effortlessly. Experiment with layering to add texture and dimension to the overall look. 

Face Forward

Makeup is a great form of artistic expression, allowing you to experiment with colours, textures and styles. It’s like painting, with your face as the canvas. There’s so many ways to add a pop of colours into your makeup from lipstick to eyeshadow, eyeliner and even mascara. 

Remember, the key is to have fun with your style and use colours to express your personality. Whether you choose bold statements or subtle accents, embracing a diverse palette can breathe new life into your wardrobe.

Now What? The Aftermath of the 'Manic Pixie Dream Girl'

by Susan Moore Here is a bit about me: I am an open, excitable, creative AFAB who is also moderately attractive. I have a unique sense of personal style and a personality that on the surface can only be described as “bubbly” and “quirky”. For this reason, dating is a nightmare. To be sure, I do not have a hard time finding dates or potential suitors. The problems arise when said dates spend some time with me and decide that I am a rare specimen, and the connection they feel with me is “unlike anything they have felt before”. Then, things go one of two ways.  Either a) they decide I am too high maintenance and no longer palatable, or  b) they choose to never look further than the surface and are content to date the idea of me rather than the real me. There is something rather interesting, perhaps funny, about my situation. It is in no way unique. I have met so many people who constantly dealt with the same problem. Even funnier still, is the fact that there is a trope that simultaneousl

Eurydice’s Last Words

by Kate Bradley I do not want to return To sit in the stalls, Of an empty black box Strewn with petals Leave the ghost light on, Let it shine like a call home, But I will not come back To turn it off alone. I learn this as we walk Our ever so solemn path Our thudding funeral march, You think we’re going back. As I trace my old steps, I fear of the day When the symphony swells, And I land my gaze On you, yet you will be Enraptured by the sound, If you did twist To turn around, You would not see me. So I am not sorry, I speak out into the empty air And I am not sorry. “Turn Around.” You do, you look You think  I fall But I run on, Arms wide open To fall in love With it all “Perhaps she was the one who said, ‘Turn around.” On the X45 bus, back from the Tyneside Cinema, I wrote a poem entitled “Eurydice’s Final Words”, after having seen “Portrait of a Lady on Fire”.  That poem was terrible, so I wrote a new one, as my response to the beautifully poignant film.  In one scene, Héloïse, an 18
