Tropical colour combinations for every palette


It's officially summer (regardless of what the weather might occasionally say to the contrary), and nothing celebrates this time of year like a tropical inspired outfit. Whether you're off to soak up the sunshine or simply trying to brighten up the Great British Summer, bright colours feel perfect for this time of year.

Wearing bright clothes can feel a little scary though - it takes far more confidence to wear aqua than navy, or hot pink instead of burgundy. Knowing your seasonal colour palette is a great starting point, as you'll feel confident that even the brightest and boldest shades within your palette make you look and feel amazing and really flatter and brighten your skintone.

If you don't know your seasonal colour palette yet, you can start with our colour quiz to learn which palette of colours makes you look and feel your best. Once you've done that, or if you already know your seasonal palette, the links below will take you to the best tropical colour combinations for your season.

You are so right, Jo! Campanula is a fabulous colour. Hoping to see more choices in this colour next season - a cardigan, would be lovely!!
