Its not all dark these days

portmans

In winter the fashion palette becomes more subdued - vivacious summer pinks become dusky , bright greens become mints and sages and background colours are dominated by rich and deep browns , reds and this season even black. This may seem outwardly boring , but toned down hues means that accent colours work twice as effectively and make a huge impact on your look.

Look for shimmery reds , teals and my favourite corals - to lighten and brighten up darker colours. Pictured is a casual day look from portmans which features this hot orange leopard lurex scarf which is reminiscent of Karen Wallkers queenie was a dog collection but at a fraction of the price.
