11 pieces to brighten up your wardrobe during this dreary month

January is never the brightest month – both literally and figuratively.

It’s cold, wet, the buzz of Christmas has faded and we are all seriously hungover from the joy.

However, all hope is not lost.

There are ways to make January feel more cheery and less dreary. One of these ways is using our clothes to tell a different story.

It may sound frivolous but a good outfit can change your mood. While at this time of year it’s easier to reach for black and grey, why not try adding a pop of colour to your #ootd?

For those afraid of colour, it doesn’t have to be an all or nothing approach. To ease your way into the rainbow, start with a scarf, bag or footwear.

Meanwhile, if you want to look as vibrant as possible, try a coat, pants, cardigan or any item that looks like a colour wheel.

Our favourite vivid pieces right now include River Island’s bright blue oversized borg coat, Omnes’ orange slip dress and Zara’s fuchsia knit jumper, which will make the darkest days feel lighter.
