Sooooo, fellow fashion followers. Whats gona be hot this summer? ? ?
thats right, the florescent yellow top you have been shamefully hiding all these years (im sure we can all relate here) is actually IN STYLE now! be proud of yourself, back then people were all "what arrrre you thinking???" when really you are just sooooo blindingly ahead of the times! 

So lets get down to it, shall we? Well right now the only store that has really hit me is .... Zara! wowziers! that place has the colour pop trend about as down as the knickers in amsterdam! 

I like how Zara has created their garments, the colour pop trend isn't an easy thing to pull off, topshop will take on the floral side of the trend, as always wanting to cater to the florence welches of the world, but Zara, now this sh!t is hot! The garments themselves are of a slightly higher quality, reflected in their prices (typical!) but the simplicity of them make you literally have to stop and stare.
Now, for my "if you're a p^ssy" piece:
Now it is completely understandable that not many people out there will want to adopt the love child that is colour pop, however, fear not amigos! I give you, white and black! haha! I realise that you are probably thinking, these are not bright colours. congrats your not colour blind! 

Pop a bright belt, bag, scarf, even something a little as shoes and matching nail polish will help create the colour pop trend affect, but without the risk of looking like a peacock.
Where might you find such things you ask? Well, scarves - vintage is ALWAYS best if you ask me, and if you can get down there by the 10th of April selfidges pop up oxfam shop has hella good offers on brightly coloured scarves. Belts - Primark, if you can stand the hussle and bussle of the place then head to the belt section, and get a few different colours, or if your feeling frisky get the same colour in different shades (ohhh naughty) make sure they are as thin as possible and wear them together, or get one block colour in a thick. 

Bags - everywhere, block colour bags are everywhere right now, but american apparel have a wicked range of clutches with a big metal zipper that are very on trend right now. The above is in white but they have a range of colours, they are currently sold out so check ebay, or be patient!
Nail polish, as mentioned in a previous posting, Barry M nail paint is the best around! It is less likely to chip within the first two days of wearing it and removes like a dream!
Shoes to match the nail polish? I have found this amazing pair of orange (wait till u look at them) heels from there for a mere £44.99 which would look amazing this summer, wether your stuck in the city, or on a beach in dubai!

On that note, I think it is fair to say that you are officially prepared for the hottest summer trend, so go forth and multiply! (your wardrobe that is... duuurrrr)
