Summer may be on our mind, but our wardrobes are dark and – dare we say – starting to look a little bit gloomy? What we need is a bright and beautiful injection of colour – the perfect excuse to shop our new season accessories…

Banish the boring black bag in favour of something more exciting, with bold coloured accessories hot to trot for spring. Burberry’s aptly named show, ‘The Birds and The Bees’, started the season with an explosion of yellow, green and pink accessories. Meanwhile bright, cartoon-style floral bags were seen on the catwalks of Marni, Fendi and Valentino.

Don’t be afraid of the zesty alternative; it’s just as wearable as your darkest accessory. Style icon Olivia Palermo is well known for her love of clashing prints and contrasting accessories, so the colourful look has high fashion approval. For more ideas of how to work with colour, our round-up of the most bright and beautiful looks is sure to get you in the colour loving mood.
