2014’s Must-Have Colour: Lime

Mandarin, blood orange, sun yellow and lime; citrus fruits are the must-have colours this year and lime is leading the pack. Whether it’s a lime cross body bag, lace bandeau dress or heeled sandals, high street retailers everywhere are launching the colour in their latest collections. Discover how to flaunt this year’s hottest shade without overdoing it.

IT Bags

If you want to be subtle about it, one way to work the trend is with a luxurious statement handbag. The Modalu Twiggy Crossbody bag in lime is the ultimate take-everywhere accessory. Leather cross body bags such as this can be slung over the shoulder and worn on the hip for a hands-free shopping experience or night on the tiles.

Whether you take the monochrome approach to fashion or simply want to inject a pop of colour into your personal style, this chic cross body bag will carry you through spring and summer.

The Twosie

The twosie is usually championed with vibrant crop tops and matching short combos, but this elegant two-piece takes a more understated approach to the trend. The modern fit is juxtaposed with a soft shade of lime which holds attention without looking exaggerated.

This sophisticated look is uncomplicated to style and could be worn to the office with tasteful black sandals and a colour matching necklace or livened up for a night-time look with neon bright lipstick and powerful heels.

Colour Blocking

Colour blocking is enjoying 5 minutes of fame in the fashion world. Whether it’s bold strokes of neon lime coinciding with electric blue or a trio of pretty pastels, up the ante this spring by stepping out in block coloured fashion.

Why not try a primary coloured ensemble featuring a red dress, yellow clutch and powder blue shoes or scale it down with fondant fancied shades of pink rose and thai green lime.

If you’re too reserved for a head to toe look, let talented designers do the work for you with mixed colour handbags and accessories. Pair these pieces with muted colours for a stylish spring update.

Another offering from the designers behind eminent handbag brand Modalu England, is the Boxy Shopper in lime mix. Distinctively different, this canvas bag is the ideal companion for pay day shopping sprees.

Will you be championing the lime trend this season?
