Breezy, Colourful Pieces to Spend a Sunny Day In

A Bright Bag

The conventional wisdom might be that a black or brown bag will go with any outfit, but don’t underestimate the versatility of colour. A vibrant accessory, like this shoulder bag in swimming pool blue from Bottega Veneta, can elevate an otherwise muted wardrobe. Pictured: Bottega Veneta bag. Catbird bracelet.

A High-Contrast Skirt

An ankle-length skirt, worn with bare legs, is a dependable summer-into-fall staple. This neon orange option by Prada acts as a great base for layering — and colour blocking. Pictured: Supriya Lele dress and bra. Prada skirt. Fendi top (off-body). The Row sandals.

A Feather-Light Dress

Romantic voluminous dresses can boost one’s mood in any season, and this linen and silk version from Cecilie Bahnsen strikes a perfect balance between lightness and structure. Pictured: Cecilie Bahnsen dress.

A Chunky Sweater

It’s hard to go wrong with a cosy knit, but for fall why not make it supersized and rainbow-hued, like this cardigan from the young knitwear designer Hope Macaulay. Pictured: Hope Macaulay sweater. Fendi top. The Marc Jacobs x Stan Ray pants.

Pastel Nails

Candy-coloured nails can brighten any ensemble; try pastel shades of pink, yellow and blue — you can mix and match them, too. Pictured: Fendi top. Supriya Lele dress (worn underneath).

A Rainbow-Hued Necklace

Strands of natural gemstones that run the colour spectrum — jade, amethyst, green sapphire — are an easy way to incorporate an earthy vibe into your outfit. Double down by layering versions in different hues. From top: Harwell Godfrey necklace. Monica Rich Kosann locket.

Strappy Sandals

After months of flat summer slides, sandals with a mid-height block heel will be a welcome upgrade. Try a colourful version, like this strappy, bright pink pair from Ferragamo. Pictured: Salvatore Ferragamo sandals. Cecilie Bahnsen dress.

Bold Stripes

On brisker days, a striped sweater is a safe bet. For a fresh take on the classic piece, try knits in rich, vibrant hues — like these cashmere separates from the Elder Statesman — and match them from head to toe. Pictured: The Elder Statesman top and pants. AGR Knit hat.

Colour-Tinted Sunglasses

What better way to hold onto the last days of summer than with a pair of rose-coloured glasses? These, by Sun Buddies, provide a dose of ’90s nostalgia and a subtle pop of yellow that will give any outfit a sunny glow. Pictured: Sun Buddies sunglasses. Fendi top.

Delicate Prints

Contrasting floral patterns, as seen on this faded blue and yellow piece by the New York label Rentrayage, which rebuilds vintage clothes, offer a subtle update to the timeless cotton day dress. Pictured: Rentrayage dress.

From airy dresses to cosy crocheted knits, in vibrant colours that include bright orange, seafoam green and iridescent blue — sometimes worn all at once — here are some ideas that will work for the fall fashion season while still feeling summery.
