Monday 21st January is Blue Monday – supposedly the most depressing day of the year according to Dr. Cliff Amall.  His calculations in 2005 were based on several factors including weather conditions, time since Christmas, time since failing New Year Resolutions and general low motivational levels.

So I’ve rounded up a selection of brightly coloured must-buys to cheer us up on this miserable day.  Hey, any excuse to so shopping, right?

With neon brights in vogue for next season, I have my eye on this stunning Tibi Sleeveless Neoprene Scuba Dress, £555.00 which I’ll be teaming with the MiH Jeans Denim-sleeved leather biker jacket, now £270 – since this style is here to stay and what a bargain!


Introduce springs print trend into your look with these retro 3.1 Phillip Lim Brown Acetate and Metal Matte Tortoise Aviators, £150. So what if it’s snowing!  Snow gives off a glare, right?  I’m rocking these shades with this gorgeous Oasis Western Denim Shirt Dress, £45, made a little more practical for Blighty with these to-the-knee Burberry Walnut Brown Drayton Flat Riding Boots, now £330.

Give your favourite jeans and sweater combo an update with a colour pop of orange and don this J by Jas M.B Neon Trim Satchel, £85 at Urban Outfitters and Juicy Couture Woven Blazer, now £120.
