Ever since Valentino unveiled an entirely fuchsia AW22 collection, pink – and all its varying shades – has dominated seasonal colour trends. Further fuelled by the Barbie film release last month and the preceding press tour, it's safe to say Barbiecore well and truly took over this summer.
As such, you'd be forgiven for failing to acknowledge any other spring/summer fashion trends, specifically other colour-based looks. But if you're ready to take off those rose-tinted glasses (metaphorically and literally), there's a whole rainbow ready and waiting for you to explore.
Looking for inspo? Everyone from Florence Pugh and Jennifer Lopez, to Kylie Minogue and Priyanka Chopra have been spotted rocking head-to-toe red outfits. But if you're after a bigger departure from eye-catching bright hues, we suggest you turn to silver.
If you need convincing, just check out Rita Ora's unreal silver dress.
For a night out in Ibiza alongside her husband Taika Waititi, Rita's 'fit in question consisted of a stunning halterneck silver dress constructed from a semi-sheer fabric. Falling to just below the knee, the design also featured a thigh-high leg slit. And to really bring the drama, Rita ditched her bra entirely, freeing the nip in her see-through frock.
She finished her look with black platform sandals and a pink metallic shoulder bag, adding two silver cuffs on her right wrist. And Rita even coordinated her makeup look, wearing sparkly silver eyeshadow.
We've been loving this low-key trend across shoes and jewellery, but we'll now be looking for ways to incorporate the shiny shade into our wardrobes more significantly. And a silver dress is a great way to start.

It's not just the silver trend that Rita's 'fit nails. Her dress also ticks off another big SS23 style – naked dressing. We've seen see-through ensembles worn on and off the red carpet by nearly every A Lister, but it's no secret Rita has been a huge lover of the look.
Over the past few months, Rita has worn a netted dress for a photoshoot for Vogue Australia, a very sheer red lacy lingerie dress donned for a performance in Sydney, a black floral lace totally transparent Paris Fashion Week lewk, a semi-opaque striped crop top and maxi skirt co-ord and a hot pink crochet beach cover-up.
Yep, all hail the Queen of the naked dress.
