Outfit Selection #37: Magenta

Bright colours can make a huge difference to your daily outfit, incorporating a saturated hue like yellow, red or pink, will not only bring some visual impact, but also a sense of security and fashion style. In this outfit selection, I’ve decided to follow such rule, and show you how a colour like Magenta, can make you look bright and spring-ready!


Starting off, the said Magenta Cashmere blend Boat neck sweater by Burberry Prorsum, as seen on the catwalk last June, is the perfect example to start our bright outfit, made from the softest wool and featuring a lower neck, it is a stylish Spring must have garment.

Pairing such bright hue, a more subtle 70s inspired suede jacket, which has similar construction to a blazer, but keeps the outer wear style, and a pair of slim-fitting Gieves & Hawkes light-blue trousers.

Finish off the look with the most gorgeous sunglasses by Saint Laurent, to channel the Hedi Slimane rock’n’roll soul, and a pair of Leather derby shoes, featuring a white sole. Now, don’t forget to make sure you own the colour!
