When I met the lovely Anna Pumer for breakfast recently, we ended up chatting about all of the awesome colourful brands we love - both causing each other to spend money, lol.
I thought I'd pass on that juicy info (*cough* enabling) and recommend my favourite colourful brands below. If you're anything like us and love to feature colour in your home and wardrobe, you might like to invest in a couple of new bits for your photos, be it your business brand photo shoot or relaxed family photos at home, let your personality shine through with some colourful details!
I personally have a very eclectic style. Some days I am super casual, other days I like to feel more put together and professional looking, depending on what I'm doing, who I'm photographing, etc. For a professional yet comfy look, I love a good jersey jumpsuit with a splash of colour from Boden. When I'm home editing, you'll usually find me in colourful leggings with a fun sweatshirt from Pickle or Isolated Heroes and on most days when it's chilly, I wear my amazing Coatigan from Aesthetic Laundry.
LOM is based in Brighton, I LOVE Louise's collections! Specifically designed with festivals in mind, her clothes can be rocked anytime, especially if you have a fun, alternative style and of course, love colour! My favourite is the Femina Magicae multi-coloured pattern on black - it's beautiful and really stands out with every colour of the rainbow!
These leggings are SUPER comfy and there are so many amazing designs. They pass the squat test but I wear them for more than working out, I have my tie-dye rainbow ones on right now while I write and catch up on admin ;) They come in capri length as well as regular and tall.
I love their colourful dresses (although they don't currently have any as they're changing suppliers to only use organic cotton), jumpers and T-shirts.
Another awesome leggings brand, Tikiboo has some brilliant colourful patterns.
These tights are awesome! They fit so well (you can buy based on width as well as height and they have footless designs too), they never roll and they come in an amazing array of colours! I have at least 10 pairs, they're super comfy and bright! It's also one of the most inclusive brands I've come across.
A local company based in Brighton, Lucy & Yak are known for their dungarees but they just don't work on me. I adore their Alexa trousers though - elasticated waist for the win! They come in loads of colours and patterns, I own the rainbow stripe (out of stock), burnt orange and soon the pink and red ones too!
Another Brighton based company and one with a more refined, professional, yet still colourful style, Sugarhill has a gorgeous collection of shirts, tops and dresses as well as more casual collections.
A really fun brand based in Dundee near where I grew up! I love their sequin sleeved sweatshirts and quirky designs.
Another fun brand which prides itself on sustainability and zero waste is Aesthetic Laundry. I adore their Whitney collection with rainbow tassels!
