Some of the biggest names in fashion have been eagerly reintroducing colour for some time now. Bright, bold colours have been making a huge comeback, and this continues well into spring. Nowhere is this more obvious than on red carpets around the world at the moment. Pairing bold lips with statement colour popping accessories adds a bright touch to your wardrobe, and demonstrates a simple and effective way to spice up your style and stay on trend.
Marion Cotillard, for instance, at London’s The Dark Knight Rises premier takes up this trend perfectly: she’s added excitement to an otherwise simple silhouette by choosing a lip colour, heels and purse in solid crimson.

Fun makeup choices can really bring out the boldness in your tights as well. Brown eyed gals can make eyes pop with shades of green and blue around the eyes, and blue or green eyed girls can add spice with pinks, blues and silver.
Following this pop colour trend, FireHosiery has just released the ‘Chameleon’ range of coloured tights in a selection of fun and fabulous shades including turquoise, fuchsia, lilac and tangerine. Complement these fun colourful tights with a lip colour or eyeliner in the same colour, and finish with a belt detail, purse or earrings in the same colour.
Make the rest of your outfit simple and sleek with shades of grey, blue or black, or go for the more adventurous option and pick a contrasting colour! Other popular and eye catching combinations include red with green tights, navy with pink or orange, or even purples and golden hues with bright turquoise tights.
There are lots of combinations which work, just make sure to keep accessories or makeup accents consistent. For a simpler take on this trend, just stick to a lip colour or eyeliner in the same colour as your stockings, or pick an appropriately matching nail polish. By selecting just one of these to complement your tights, you can still achieve a very sophisticated look which can be just as effective as incorporating colour from head to toe.
