Keeping colourful in a gray winter

1 Ditch the black purse Give up the classic black handbag for something zany. A colourful handbag will put a smile on your face on a cold day.

2 Heavy on the blush Forget bold eyes and lips, a bright pink blush lights up your entire face.

3 Make a statement with oversized earrings Search in your mother's jewellery box, or, if this fails, a trip to a vintage jewellery shop may be in order.

4 Vary your jeans Whether it's high-waisted jeans, flares or boot cuts, give your skinny jeans a rest and try out some other denim styles.

5Get yourself a new hairstyle A star model of the moment is Arizona Muse (right), and her sleek bob is expected to be heavily copied this winter.
