Why does it work? It streamlines your look, avoiding any fussy prints or unfortunate clashing for didn’t-have-to-think-about-it style – even on the most rushed mornings.
Ditch monochrome for a night out and instead look to pretty pink separates for a summery evening look.
A blazer, wide leg trousers and mules is this season’s easiest formula for new season dressing, and switching out darker shades for pale blue will ensure the look is bang on trend.
The sandwich rule applies to dresses too – add a biker and black heels to a directional look for an easy day-to-night edit.
Not sure how to wear bright shades this season? Embrace the matchy matchy look by teaming up the same bold shade, breaking up the edit with a subtle middle hue.
Embracing the rule doesn’t mean forgoing neutral hues – try matching earth colours for a pared-back take.
