Hands up if you like pop music! The capital FM summertime ball was like an explosion of the best of the UK music charts onto the stage at Wembley Arena.
It was one of the best gigs in London for ages as there were so many artists, all doing two or three songs each. We were always left wanting more – there was never a dull moment!
The same could be said of the clothes as the celebs all wore colourful outfits and went to maximum effort to give us all something to look at. If you’d like to inject some colour into your summer wardrobe but don’t know where to begin, check out how the stars did it for some summer colour inspiration:
Rita always surprises us when it comes to fashion as she reinvents herself in so many ways. Sometimes she’s in sportswear, sometimes she’s in a super bold bodycon outfit and other times she looks classy and chic as she did in this boho maxi dress. It hugs her figure at the top and nips in at the waist before flowing out into a full skirt so there’s no hiding her gorgeous curves. With her hair loose, in smooth waves and a bit of bounce, she’s dressed up the boho trend for a party environment – what do you think?
Sticking with plain denim shorts on her bottom half, Zara could afford to experiment with her top and she certainly did that with a bright red jacket. When you have a top as bold as this, it’s best to stick to neutrals and classics elsewhere so you can really let the statement piece shine.
Ella’s always had a sporty style and her summertime ball didn’t deviate from that with her crop top and mini skirt showing off her toned abs and legs. But what we like most about this outfit is the accessories – check out the fluffy blue stole and the pastel blue nail polish. It’s the little colourful detail like this that really makes an outfit.
Little Mix also did boho chic in various degrees of colour and every one of them rocked it. It’s impressive how these ladies can take a trend and interpret it in their own ways. Perrie’s white mini dress was super girly while Jesy’s jumpsuit was attention-grabbing and on trend. Then check out their footwear – the laces and fur add an extra luxe detail to their looks.
The former X Factor singer started with the statement leather skirt and picked the rest of her look to complement the skirt. The strappy sandals really lengthen and help tone her legs even more while the casual top stops her from looking like she’s tried too hard. Her style sense has really evolved since her X Factor Days.
Hailee has her own unique laid-back LA chic look and she sticks to it. Well, if she looks that cool in casual wear, she shouldn’t need to change for anyone. The white boots help elevate this look from streetwear to partywear and the contrasting shades of blue make it more interesting. Jeans, heels and a colourful top are an easy but effective way to wear colour and make an impact this summer while still feeling comfortable.
As the compere and host of the night, Vick had to go the extra mile and she did that with a pink trouser suit. The fuschia colour really suited her hair and skin tone and it might have given her some extra energy as she was a lively, energetic host. If you’re feeling brave, wearing a colour like this will definitely bring out your wild side and give you an extra energy boost. You’ll know when you try it on if it suits you or not and if it makes you smile when you look in the mirror, then go for it. Sometimes, the brighter the better!
Who do you think wore colour best? We’re looking forward to a bright, colourful summer!
