I didn’t realize how much fun colourful electronics could be until I bought my camera a couple years ago. The camera store was out of basic black (my first choice) and only had red and brown at the time. “Red,” I said hesitantly after some deliberation. Since then, I’ve grown to appreciate and love my camera’s unusual colour. Now, when I snap photos at events, its red exterior elicits compliments. Some people have even pointed out it matches my lipstick or handbag.
What I learned from this experience is that a brightly coloured gadget can be an extension of one’s personal style statement, whether it’s a camera or a smartphone like the Nokia Lumia 920. The Nokia Lumia 920 (available exclusively through Rogers) will be available in yellow, red, black and white this spring. To celebrate, I was invited to share fashion picks inspired by its striking hues, so without further ado, here they are!
A touch of red is always chic, whether it’s in the form of a pointy-toed pump or a pair of retro-inspired sunnies. Personally, I always carry a clutch or wear red lipstick when I want to add some crimson to an outfit. Scarlet manis work too.
Yellow is a statement-making shade on its own. But when used in a pair of sketch-adorned pumps or on the lapels of a minimalist coat, it gains a whole new dimension of playfulness. This spring, I’ll be wearing my yellow cashmere cardi over sailor tees and shift dresses when I want a hit of sartorial sunshine.
Black & White
My favourite colour trend of the season involves (surprise!) no colour at all. I love all the graphic black-and-white pieces in stores right now. Wear them head-to-toe in an on-trend ensemble, or combine them with colourful separates for a look that transcends seasons.
Finally, a phone as colourful as you are. The new Nokia Lumia 920, available exclusively at Rogers. Express yourself with your choice of four vibrant colours - yellow, red, black and white. Visit rogers.com/nokiacolours for details.
