Fashion High Five – Add A Pop Of Colour To A Birthday Party

Add some colour to your wardrobe.

Over the last couple of weeks, we have looked at various ways to introduce a little colour into your wardrobe.

You can take it up a notch by wearing a block coloured dress, jacket or top. If this is a little too much for you, then slowly add colour through accessories.

The items below are perfect for changing up your personal wardrobe, but as this piece is focused on a birthday party, we’ve made sure they are ideal for gifts too.

Jacket, €69 at Topshop

Yellow is one of those shades that people tend to steer clear of. However, when you give it a go, it’s a colour you might be pleasantly surprised by. This jacket is great as it’s the perfect finishing touch to a simple outfit. Put simply, it does all the work for you. Wear this with a black vest and black skinny jeans, denim jeans and a white shirt or a skater dress in a block colour. The options are endless and it will bring a little sunshine to your everyday look.


Earrings, €12 at Warehouse

Accessories are the easiest way of introducing colour if you’re a newbie to this trend. We love these earrings from Warehouse and if you’re not yet convinced, these will allow you to try the trend without breaking the bank. They also make the perfect birthday present so whether you buy for yourself or a friend, you’re onto a winner.


€34, Dior Addict Lipstick at Brown Thomas

In addition to accessories, adding a new shade to your make-up routine is an easy way of adding some colour to your look. We love Dior Addict lipstick, it’s a gorgeous shade and the luxurious packaging makes it a worthy addition to our lust list. Much like the earrings, this will make the perfect birthday present, for yourself or a friend. We LOVE it.


Sea Bead, €30 at Alex and Ani (stockists nationwide)

Alex and Ani bracelets are very popular at the moment and it’s no surprise considering the huge array of pieces available. From coloured stones to special meanings, there’s something for everyone. We love this Red Sea Beaded Bangle, even if your outfit is simple this will add a little splash of colour and it’s the perfect everyday jewellery item.





 €15, at Penneys.

It’s almost fluffy jumper season again and this makes us happy. Wear this with boyfriend jeans and ankle boots for a relaxed birthday gathering. Oh and like the other pieces mentioned, this is a great present idea. Your friend/sister/cousin is sure to thank you when she’s all tucked up in this cosy number and it’s a bargain at €15.
