In pursuit of colour

I’ve always been a black-wearing slightly-grunge kind of girl, but lately I find myself drawn more and more to bright colours and abstract patterns. I can’t help craving colour blocking and painterly swooshes of peach, sky blue, mustard, olive and navy.

I made a moodboard to inspire my style choices for 2017. As I’m focusing on ethical fashion this year my choices are a little bit restricted, and I’m aiming not to buy too many new things anyway. But if I could buy anything I wanted (and actually pull off anything I wanted), here’s what my wardrobe would look like in 2017.
