(As written for On The Coast Over 55)

This Autumn/Winter there is a fashion trend that incorporates bold colour, statement shapes, vibrant accessories and strong style combinations… here at VC we have called it The Intense Trend.

This trend is eclectic and sure to turn heads!

While it may not be for everyone’s style or personality we wanted to share with you how you can rock this trend at any age with confidence, if your heart desires.

Wear The Intense Trend Successfully With These Styling Tips:

  • stick to your colour palette above ALL ELSE! If you do not suit clear bright shades, opt for muted, rich shades i.e burnt orange opposed to a vibrant clear orange; this will ensure you look energised, appropriate and refreshed
  • don’t wear more than three colours at once unless you know how to work with various shades of colours and/or prints you have chosen. As a general rule incorporating up to three colours in your entire outfit will help avoid looking messy and uncoordinated
  • ensure accessories tone with the colours of your clothes OR are creating a bold contrast to your outfit
  • if wearing multiple colours is too overwhelming for you, pick one colour and wear various shades of it i.e Blue; try aqua, navy, cobalt together
  • incorporate lipstick colours into your look. Wearing shades of plum, lilac, pink, red, orange are great ways to add The Intense Trend into your outfit if you don’t own or want to invest in colourful clothes
  • if something feels too much, then un-layer a piece of clothing or remove a colour; whilst The Intense Trend is bold and eye catching you should still feel comfortable and energised not self conscious and over powered
  • have 2-3 fashion focal points to your outfit i.e statement shoe and fashion earring or coloured jacket and bold lipstick. Having too many focal points can look a bit over the top and create a bad distraction to your over all look. Featured; this gorgeous model has her colour as one focal point and her earring as a second focal point. If she wanted, she could add in a statement cobalt blue bag to incorporate a third focal point, but anything beyond that would be too much. TIP: refer back to the three colour rule above and ensure your focal points tone with your chosen three colours

We hope these tips have inspired you to try this vivacious trend this Autumn/Winter and if you do need further assistance we are always here to help.

Vibrantly yours,
