Since watching the Jil Sander SS11 show all I can think about is juicy brights. 
Discard your winter camel uniform and try something more delicious. Look out for that tangerine burst, aqua blue, neon pink, lime green and citrus lemon…mouth watering! Think electric and make a bold statement blocking colours or clashing for that all out runway look. Keep accessories oversized and minimal; grab a chunky cocktail ring, a fruity silk scarf or a statement rainbow tassel bag, throw on some round DVF sunglasses or a pair of neon Ray-Bans and your good to go! 
For those not quite so daring team a vibrant pink with a neutral shade or turn up the voltage on your crisp white shirt by pairing with a pair of bold white leg trousers.

Here is Novateur’s edit to get you in the mood…lets get zesty...

RIP Digital Camera

Right now I am super obsessed with the film camera and fancy vintage shots. Be it a Diana or an old instant Polaroid (check out The Impossible Project who have brought back the instant film - genius) I am fully obsessed. Say goodbye to your digital brick and pick up a fun film camera. Toy and instant are perfect for capturing that dreamy shot; the hues, colours and tones embed a timeless quality and vintage feel into any  photograph. Urban Outfitters have a great selection of toy cameras and old Polaroids are available from Amazon to Ebay. Head over to or to stock up on film and get snapping.

If buying a new camera and consequent film is too pricey then don't worry we have a cheat; head over to 'the easiest polaroid image maker' . They don't look half bad either!  

Oh, and please get your images printed and put into frames, what's the use of having them lost in cyberspace, stored on discs or hidden in old Facebook albums!

Polaroid Passion

Andy Warhol's collection pretty much sums up my love for the instant. They captured an untouched, unedited moment and show a glimpse of his creative process as he used them to aid his art.
