Summer’s officially here and everywhere I look I see people happier, smilier and generally brighter than ever. The celebrities are leading the way, getting out their brightest outfits and accessorising their show-stopping clothes with a big grin and maybe a big pair of sunglasses. When I went to the ITV summer party, I don’t think I saw any black! Colour was the un-official dress code of the night and it was led by Very designer and This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby. Holly’s new collection has just come into Very and there are some gorgeous bright dresses in there – I love it!
I was also quite impressed by The Only Way Is Essex star Lucy Mecklenburgh, who dazzled in a lime green dress. I never imagined I would like an outfit worn by a TOWIE star so much but the green colour goes so well with a summer tan. I also noticed a lot of celebs wearing red with ex Spice Girl Emma Bunton looking sophisticated in a smart red dress and Myleene Klass looking chic in a dress from her own collection for Very – a dice print dress. The bright red lipstick is also a nice touch, isn’t it?
Ex Coronation Street actress Shobna Gulati is my final pick of the night, with her yellow dress making her look youthful and pretty. Brightening up your clothes can make your face appear lighter and more youthful…well, that’s what it seems to have done for Shobna.
Looking at all these celebrities in different colours shows everyone can wear bold and brights – if blue or green isn’t your colour then go for red or pink. Now summer is set to stay, we may as well embrace it! The hardest decision for me is working out what colour to go for first..
