Topshop

Only yesterday was I bemoaning the lack of colour in our designers collections in comparison to those on display at Indian Fashion Week. If you’re craving a bit of crazy colour in your wardrobe then TopShop has the answer in the form of their Zandra Rhodes designed pieces. The floral print skirt (£85) would look perfectly at home on a Bollywood stage, with its vibrant pink colour and three layers that would swirl when you twirl. Ditto the hot pink dress (£75), which will make you centre of attention for all the right reasons, as the shoulder ruffles and modest skirt length mean you can do it without exposing yourself. A word of caution though, unless you really do want to look like a Bollywood extra, I’d advise you to combine these pieces with simple plains and refrain from piling on the ethnic jewellery.
