Pretty in Pastels

Claire Lopez Colour, Pastels Leave a Comment

In stark contrast to the sharpness of last week’s monochrome, this week I’m looking at another of the season’s key trends – pastel. These gorgeous yellows, blues, lilacs and greens look fab with denim and will certainly help to add some lightness and freshness to your spring wardrobe. As the weather warms up, swap your blue denim for white – …

The Beauty of Blue

Claire Lopez Blue, Colour 1 Comment

The colour of 2020 is Classic Blue according to the colour officials, Pantone. Seeing as this is a colour which is supposed to bring peace and tranquillity and instil calmness and confidence, no wonder blue is a great colour to wear to the office. So this blog is all about gorgeous shades of blue – classic or not – and with smart and casual pieces …

Think Pink

Claire Lopez Colour, Pink Leave a Comment

It’s Valentine’s Day. So in a slight nod to this most commercial of days, this week’s blog is about one of my most favourite colour clashes – red and pink, the colours of love – you can all do a quick wretch now as all love-related chat is done and dusted. And now on to the much more important fashion …

The Colour of Autumn

Claire Lopez Colour, Rust Leave a Comment

Has fashion’s obsession with black finally come to an end? Well judging by this season’s abundance of rust, caramel, tobacco, tan and even brown tones, this autumn is going to be a warm one. So here are a plethora of options to tempt. I have to say that I won’t be going down the brown corduroy suit or even jacket route …

You are my sunshine

Claire Lopez Colour, yellow Leave a Comment

We have gone from the sublime to the ridiculous – 27 degrees to under 7 degrees. If you add into the mix no heating or a back wall plus several other large, key bits of our house missing, the past week has been pretty grim. We have been cowering around a single fan heater in our loft for an entire weekend, the …
