How to be brave with colour and print …
Choose a piece by a designer or brand renowned for their use of colour and print. Juggling vibrant separates can be tricky if you’re not confident with colour and pattern so let designers do the hard work for you and select a single standout piece. Labels such as Dries Van Noten and Mary Katrantzou, and high street brands including Monsoon, are great go-to’s.

Reflect this brave but beautiful look by embracing a bold lip. This season, it’s all about a super matte lip in a daring shade. Pair with natural brows and minimal eye make-up for a chic spring look. We love this Matte Revolution lipstick from Charlotte Tilbury in Sexy Sienna, €30 at Brown Thomas.
