Colour loves colour!

I say the above to my personal style students all the time even though I'm usually teaching them all in black - note to self wear colour!

One of my favourite magazines is Saturday's Guardian Weekend. And last Saturday Jess Cartner-Morley nearly broke my resolve to stay squeaky clean on the spending front!

The skirt is from Tommy Hillfiger, shoes from Russell & Bromley (£175), top from Salvatore Ferragmo (£132) and cardigan by Miu Miu (£195)

PS note to sub editors - stop using the future's orange ref anything orange coloured. Crikey it's been 14 years now since Orange branded the UK with the futures bright the futures Orange and every sub has exhausted it! Howz about 'there's no skirting the issue'!

  1. Hi there-I do love brights, but I feel more comfortable when they are in a pattern rather than plain colours. This outfit does look good though!

  2. I'm with you - brights are great to look at, but black is great to wear!

  4. I loved that outfit when I saw it on Saturday. Mainly because red, pink and orange is one of my favourite colour combos. Definitely agree about the orange/future references!!

  5. Wow, orange can be a silly problem now that Orange is around, can't it? ;) I know about that Orange campaign.

    We don't have Orange over here, but we do have orange, and luckily our orange is free of Orange associations.

    I'll shut up now.

  7. I haven't had coffee today or maybe I am just dense. What is the problem with orange in England?

    I love the skirt. ORange is one of my favorite colours.

  8. La Belette - the brand slogan for a mobile/celltelecomms company called Orange in the UK is 'the future is bright, the future's Orange.' So when anything orange is mentioned some bright spark use the slogan in part! This article was 'the future's orange (honest)'. you see no imagination!!

  12. I wear black with a little grey, navy & brown thrown in in winter, but come the summer I am all about as bright as it gets. And why? Because I am fake tanned! Otherwise I find brights do not go with my skim milk skin tone. LLGxx

  13. I'm still not feeling this orange thing. It reminds me too much of that disastrous lime/orange trend that came around some time in the late-ish nineties. I'll stick with coral, methinks!

  14. i love the brights. it takes a lot of daring & courage to wear it, though! I'd probably end up wearing one at a time!

  15. Yeah, I looked at this pic for a long time on Saturday and couldn't make up my mind about it. I don't think I could pull it off.

    In the meantime, some poor sub probably thought they were being most clever and original! xx

  17. I don't usually like that JCM column but she looks lovely here. I used to call these 'Matthew Williamson colours' but this season I thing they're more Luella, no?

    Re the 'The Future's Orange' lazy subbing issue, surely tis better than 'Green Is The New Black'?
