Summer Style: Citrus Hues

The turn of summer can inspire an array of style switches: legs in tights become bare, long sleeve jumpers become breezy T-shirts, and winter hues do a 180 to make way for a palette of fresh summer shades. Making colour the focal point of their outfit, we’ve spotted plentiful style influencers fashioning summer-ready citrus hues in numerous ways. Scroll through the gallery above for a dose of sartorial inspiration and take notes from our style tips below.

Go for head-to-toe
Show your commitment to colour and go orange from top to bottom à la Emmy Rossum. Matching her midi dress, heels and lips, this is summer-event perfection.

Practice pops of colour
Don’t worry if wearing colour from head-to-toe makes you feel slightly uneasy, make like Zoe Saldana who added a pop of bright yellow to her otherwise monochrome outfit via a chic pair of pumps.  

Dress-up downtime
A well-fitting blazer can dress up a downtime ensemble of jeans and a T-shirt in an instant. Louise Roe has opted for a suitably invigorating orange number, lifting her ankle-skimming skinnies and white tee to chic new heights.

Make power prints your go-to
Michael Kors’ Spring/Summer 2015 collection was a veritable feast of summery prints and delightful colours, just ask Kate Hudson, who looked divine in this sunny ensemble: we love the feminine length of the skirt and daring off-the-shoulder top.

Don’t be scared to clash
Who said that you can’t wear pink with yellow? Nikki Reed’s golden top-and-skirt combo is made even more playful with her choice of neon pink heels. Clash all the way and rock a dazzling pink lip too.
