Colourful wardrobe.
Sometimes fashion style is about doing something a little different with colour combinations.

When it comes to colour combinations sometimes a clash, or at least a huge contrast, can be visually appealing.

You don’t need to go whole hog either. A pink dress with a few touches with funky orange accessories will set the scene.

It’s more common than you realise. There are lots of pretty delicate floral prints out there that are pink and orange, in more delicate tones.

If you find the colour combination too much to handle you can soften the look with a neutral tone. White, black or even a blue will work.

“The orange and pink combination has been present in the Adrift collections since the beginning,” Bec Holeszko said. “It remains to be a really popular colour combination with our ladies so we give it a new twist each season. Whether that means changing the style or focusing on the details with the inclusion of embroidery and sequins, depending on the current trends.”

She said it was those little details that makes the difference. “It makes it a bit of fun.”
