FASHION - A Burst of Colour at Very.co.uk

If you are fed up of January then the antidote is on its way. Fill your wardrobe with loads of bright colours and your mood is bound to be lifted. On Friday, I popped along for a peek at the SS12 range for Very, including their celeb ranges, and the future is definitely bright.

Here are the items you can choose from (dependent on size availability)

I've included a few more of my picks below, and most of the pieces are already available on Very.co.uk if you see something that catches your eye...

The fabric pictured above was one of my favourites because it really did look and feel very vintage - the style was a short, boxy shift dress with pretty buttons on the back.

I love this red and cream lace dress from fearne Cotton's range. It isn't particularly original (the last couple of seasons we've seen a lot of this red lace, like the skater styles by Erdem) however, the short, shift-dress shape is fresh and very covetable. 

The colourful splodge print on this dress stood out for me too and it's also from Fearne's collection. A great one for an informal wedding or summer party.

This jumpsuit is from the slightly higher-priced, more premium collection at Very. The beading and sequin detailing really reminded me of All Saints. Not sure I could pull it off myself though, too much in the way of hips and a curvy bottom for the jumpsuit.

Diana Vickers's collection takes on a totally '70s feel for spring/summer and the stand-out piece was this red, turned-up cuff dress. I like this style of dress with a slightly stiffer fabric as is gives a bit more coverage to curves.   

Reena of Fashion Daydreams spotted this beauty of a dress featuring shimmering embellishment to a soft, pink chiffon. Perfect for special evenings out this summer. 

Finally, I'm not sure if I would actually wear this one, but I love orange this season. I saw it teamed with navy at Victoria Beckham and with neutrals at various other catwalk shows, so it can be easy to wear. I'd wear this dress with nude shoes and clutch bag or clashed with hot pink.
