We know that it's the second time we've spoken about minimalist bags this season... but we just can't wait for this trend to kick off next season. Don't get me wrong we've loved all things neon, pastel and bright this season but NOTHING beats a classic, leather bag in a cool neutral shade that will last FOREVER!

Look what we've got hitting down in our ASOS Marketplace Boutique this week....!

Ooooh who loves sweets and sherbet and all that other stuff? I do!! So when we decided to shoot our candy colour blocking collection I was high on sartorial E numbers!! With this collection anything goes, soooo you wanna pair a pale blue 50's skirt with a bright yellow tie blouse? Go for it girl! You wanna smoosh together a coral top with bright yellow silk shorts? Who cares??! We certainly don't! The clashier the better as far as we're concerned! But for those not down for the outlandish colour pop party why not mute the bright tone a little with some colour safe complimentary threads like a nice navy or cream top?

Look to see how we've done it, all pieces available in our ASOS Marketplace Boutique now!

So now over to you, our lovely readers! What are your fave colour combos?

Everyone’s favourite pint-size Geordie Chezza Cole is back with another super-catchy tune, Under the Sun, bound to be this summer’s soundtrack. A few behind-the-scenes snaps of Miss Cole on the set of the accompanying music video have been flying around the net since last week, and everyone’s been drooling over her smokin’ hot sixties look. Wanna steal Cheryl’s 60s Starlet style? Look no further! Here are a couple of genuine vintage pieces available online RIGHT NOW – so what are you waiting for?

OMG exact match! Coral pencil skirt, £25

Who says black and white has to be bland and uninspiring? Rocking the monochrome look this Spring/Summer has never been so hot...just ask KimYe (no further comment!). Pairing ethereal white with jet black is both chic and effortless and probably one of my fave colour combos! Although ladies don't think you have to play it safe with the solid blocking option, why not play around with prints? Even better for the bold print shy!

Our monochrome collection hits down in our ASOS Boutique throughout this week, take a sneak peek at what delights await!

Red alert, red alert it's AW12's hot new colour!

Yep, we know its a bit early, seeing as we're still patiently waiting for Summer to arrive but it's always good to be ahead of the game! This shade looks crazy teamed with Khaki and neutral for Summer and then you can whip out the leather for winter!

Is it bad that we are SO over Summer now, and looking forward to Autumn's embellishment, winter prints and leather? Naaah we didn't think so either!
