Some lime green.

It’s easier in summer to wear lots of colours as you don’t have to layer so much, but if I have to choose four, I’d go red, cream, navy and hyacinth blue (not worn at the same time as red).

New blush’s going to require bold colours underneath 🤷‍♀️

shysal and Lillie are twins.

You can't beat navy for starters. Does anyone else adhere to the maxim "dark at the bottom, light on top?"

Does anyone actually buy a summer wardrobe ? I just wear whatever is hanging in the wardrobe.

Witzend Mon 26-Apr-21 15:55:47

I certainly have plenty of summer things, Floradora9, and they do usually get worn a lot.
Still waiting at the moment, though - the sun is lovely but there’s still a wind that apparently comes straight from the North Pole.

I suppose it will depend to some extent on where you live, though. I once shared a house with a girl from Glasgow who said that back home she never wore actual summer things - just fewer winter ones.

I've just bought a green top not sure why but it'll have to be returned as I don't have a green section in my wardrobe 😂

Sky blue, shell pink, pale grey and of course - beige.

GrannyGravy13 Mon 26-Apr-21 16:17:12

Anything other than beige, brown, purple (any shade) or green (apart from very pale green)
