Fashion: Add a little sunshine to your wardrobe
Sarah Young says beat the winter blues by (subtly) including all the technicolours to see you through until spring.
Edie Parker, Goo.ey Printed Coated-Acrylic iPhone Case, £40, Net-a-Porter
A great entry-level way to bring mood-boosting rainbow stripes into your life, this phone case from Edie Parker and goo.ey is seriously fun. Designed for the iPhone 6 or 7, it's made from multi-coloured coated-acrylic in sparkly stripes but, what really sets it apart is it's ability to stick to mirror or glass using suction technology - great for handsfree selfies.
Cream Bonjour Bonsoir Cashmere Sweater, £275, Chinti & Parker
A key component of our winter wardrobes, knitwear is a perennial staple for those of us who live in cooler climes. We suggest picking up this 100% cashmere sweater from cult brand Chinti & Parker. Available in classic cream, it comes embroidered with 'Bonjour' to the front, and 'Bonsoir' to the back, both in rainbow colours.
Tassel Fan Hoop Earrings, £10, Topshop
If going full-on rainbow is too daunting then slowly introducing super-brights into your look with small details like a pair of earrings is the best way to go. For this, our favourite are these tasselled hoop earrings in crimson red that can be worn with an all-black ensemble or with contrasting colours like pink for a high-fashion look.
Anya Hindmarch, Mini Circle Crossbody Bag, £595, Matches Fashion
A handbag is a great way to jump on the rainbow trend without going too OTT and this option from Anya Hindmarch ticks all the boxes. Made in Italy with a boxy shape, the light-grey leather is complimented with a series of rainbow circular discs set into the shoulder strap that have each been finished by hand.
