Bright Lily Allen Models The Colour Block Trend

Lily Allen is back to her fashionable best – rocking the colour block trend on a night out in London with her fiancé Sam Cooper.

The lovebirds are due to tie the knot on 11 June near their home in Gloucestershire with invites sent to all their celebrity mates including James Corden, Daisy Lowe and Ray Winstone’s daughter Jaime.

But just because they’re about to get married it doesn’t make them boring – Lily was looking bright and upbeat as she partied in London’s fashionable Sketch bar and restaurant.

Very can exclusively reveal that another reason behind Lily’s new positive outlook on life is that her business is booming.

Earlier this year, a TV documentary Lily Allen: Riches to Rags covered the opening of her vintage shop Lucy In Disguise, when it seemed she was struggling to adjust to working with her sister to set up a new enterprise.

However, now it’s been the subject of a large feature in Elle UK  and Lily’s so confident it will be a success she’s planning to leave it in the hands of her sister while she relocates to Gloucestershire full time after the wedding.

And we hear she’s so into local country life that she even entered the village baking contest with a chocolate mousse cake. Sounds divine!

If you’re inspired by Lily to give the colour block trend a go then a good start is the Coleen organza colour block dress

Or try the Ringspun Queens colour block dress for something slightly brighter

The South colour block 60s dress is more low-key with it’s beige and blue design, but it’s just as lovely

As it’s warming up, Lily wears hers with a cardigan instead of a coat. Try the South button through cotton mix cardigan, which is in the sale at £16 reduced from £25

Finish with some party shoes to make your legs look longer and more luscious. The pretty Love Label garbo peep toe tube strap shoes are a perfect match for a drop dead gorgeous dress

Good luck with the wedding, Lily!
