Wear the rainbow and cosy up in winter's biggest colour trends
Sydney's fashion week (or MBFWA for those in the biz) has recently wrapped, and if the runways and streets outside were anything to go by, colour is going to be happening in a big way this winter! For some, this might be a little scary - "I have to wear something other than black? In winter?! " - and for others, it might be a welcome change - "Finally... I get to wear something other than black. In winter!".
It's human behaviour to reach for our darkest wardrobe items when it's freezing out, but if you take a wander through the shops at the moment, you'll notice their jumping on board the colour train too. Some of our favourites are Cue, Dotti, Kookai and Jeans West.
There seems to be four colours that are screaming a little louder than the others too; look out for bright green, pink, blue and orange everywhere this winter.
Get a hit of inspo and find out where to shop the best of these big, bold trends below!
