Do yourself a favour and go with the head instead of the heart this year – you’ll be surprised at just how great you could look if you play it safe with industry-recognised trends that we here at Money Guidebook have identified (or, well, our wives and their obsession with fashion mags).
So, before you go online to get yourself some summer dresses or you take an excursion to one of the many shopping centres across the UK, listen to these three top tips on colours and how to use them well.
