7 Shades of Summer

Summer is just around the corner and its time things got a little shady.
Your summer colour palette is vital to staying on trend this season, so whether you're
 frolicking in the city or escaping to the island your look will be head to flawless without fail. 
Turquoise
In the height of summer its only right that all you would like to do is wear divine pastels on repeat. Turquoise is a summer classic and your favourite high street stores provide you with endless possibilities. Whether we're talking bikinis, sandals, shades or maxis, turquoise always succeeds.
Colour combination- Pink
Beauty look-  A gorgeous shimmering tan
Accessorise with- Barely there sandals
Destination inspiration- A tropical island, Maldives, Seychelles, Barbados?
Lemonade
It was always inevitable that lemonade would be the talk of the summer. Many despise wearing yellow however fail to recognise that this shade is complimentary on every skin tone, ridiculously flattering and hot off the runway.
Colour combination- White
Beauty look- Bronzed bombshell
Accessorise with- Your favourite shades
Destination inspiration- Australian road tripping with a touch of Queen B's new album
Blood orange
I know what you're thinking, the word orange and everyone runs a mile. Well lets change that darlings because this is your key to looking ultimately fabulous. Whilst admittedly this isn't a colour combination that favours all, there are many different ways and variations to work this shade. Whether you are in need of a little more red, or feeling a little more daring with a touch more orange, if you master this shade you can do anything.
Colour combination- Gold
Beauty look- A polished sleek pony
Accessorise with- Fine costume jewellery
Destination inspiration- Salsa classes and margaritas in Cuba
Peach
Peach is perfect when it comes to swimwear due to the many ways we can incorporate it into different looks. This summer is all about cover ups. Whilst many utilise cover ups as a mean of necessity it's time to remember that the beach is your dream setting. It's time to get outrageously embellished, exquisitely sheer and ultimately elegant. 
Colour combination- Ivories, pearls and white
Beauty look- Gorgeous wavy locks
Accessorise with- Gold/Silver temporary tattoos
Destination inspiration- A Miami pool party
Fuchsia
Fuchsia returns every single year but why? It's bold and vibrant presence is enough to place the spotlight on anyone. Whilst many find fuchsia a little daunting it's time to remember experimenting with a seasonal colour palette more than often pays off. When it comes to those summer nights we are looking for something a little more exciting. Whilst pastel shades are perfect for Summer weddings and garden parties we often lose interest in them when the sun sets. Go bright and beautiful, it speaks sexy, sassy and show stopping.
Colour combination- Red, rule breaking colour clashing
Beauty look- Bright lips
Accessorise with- A pair of stilettos
Destination inspiration- One night in Vegas
Lime
Most surprising, it is lime that we find at the centre of summer shade. I can assure you that wherever you go lime will fill the racks of your favourite clothing stores. Whilst bold, lime is also brilliant. There are really no limitations to this colour so it's time we make use of that. This shade is chic, charismatic and delicious. Summer is its time to flourish, as is yours.
Colour combination- White
Beauty look- Bb cream and tinted moisturiser 
Accessorise with- Tan embellished sandals
Destination inspiration- The streets of Pariee, Rome or Barcelona
White
It's time to keep it classic. White is on trend in every season but the contrast between winter and summer is exceptional. Summer white is used to extenuate the finest cuts and textures. Paired with a gorgeous natural glow, white is perfect for any occasion. Whilst an extremely difficult colour to pull off, paired with the right accessories it has the potential to be the greatest shade of them all. Plus it will never go out of trend. Imagine yourself as Serena Van Der Woodsen taking the Hampton's.
Colour combination- Black. Monochrome is back this season.
Beauty look- Over the top highlighter
Accessorise with- A flirting fedora
Destination inspiration- The French Riviera and a touch of wine tasting


Darlings, which will be your favourite colour this Summer?
Whilst this season's palettes incorporate some of our favourite shades we also see the introduction and return of the classic experimental colours.
These summer shades are a little more outspoken, flirtatious and powerful.
