Colours for Summer 2003 include taupe, beige, chocolate, agate slices, peach, nude, soft rose, antique pink, dusty pink, deeper rose, ochre, gold, pale olive green, deeper tones of olive, apple green, chartreuse green, whitened aniseed green, safari shades, misty khaki, military green, soft blue grey, light blue, lapis blue, poppy red, Chinese red and of course the ever present great mixers black, white and cream.

Pastels, sherbet and ice cream sorbet colours will help fix the quality of some of these colours in your mind. Think of pretty soft colour mixtures in fabrics like pastel pink with a very soft creamy lemon. The mood it creates is soft, feminine and ethereal.

In addition there will also be some fluorescent colours such as hot pinks, electric blue, sea green, peachy orange and canary yellow reminiscent of exotic tropical floral prints, birds of paradise and butterfly wings.

With such a range of colours there really is something to suit most complexions and tastes. For this range think of the strength of colour used in both Indian and Chinese traditional ceremonial dress. But remember you make the choice so if neon colours are something you hate just leave the items in the shops.

If some ordinary, but bright colours shock you too much when you see them in the shops, yet you want to dare to wear really bright colours, but are not old enough to have experienced them in the 1980s then it really is a good idea to mix and soften some of these stronger colour schemes with safer tones like taupe or grey.
