Add a pop of colour

Sticking to the same routine with outfits can be tempting but why not be adventurous and include a pop of bright colour? It's easier to do than you think and here's how you can do it.

Always picking the black handbag and ballet with pink nail polish, can be tempting. They're both stylish choices and they're also very safe.

Why not be adventurous and include a pop of bright colour? I know I can be guilty of thinking 'but it doesn't match anything!', but it's worth leaving that mind-set behind. Adding a contrasting shade that doesn't actually tie in with the rest of your outfit creates a bit of interest and is very fashionable. And it's easier to do than you think. Here's how.


Leave the black and brown handbags at home and consider a red, pink or yellow one instead. Remember, you don't have to be wearing that colour anywhere else.


Bright, colourful shoes are great for a night out, whether it's a pair of bright-blue suede heels with a black top and jeans, or candy-pink stilettos with a black cocktail dress. The same goes for flats.

Lips and nails

If you're like me, you probably have a bright red lipstick. You intend to wear it, but at the last minute you opt instead for trusty nude. Time to be brave and pucker up! The same goes for nail polish. Forget subtle - choose bright orange, red, purple or even yellow! Check out O.P.I's great range of bold nail polishes at
