Update your wardrobe with the latest runway to walkway comeback trend: Colour drenching.

The term, originally reserved for describing interiors that have been covered from floor to ceiling in varying shades and tones of one hue, has now made its way into fashion, proving to be the next big thing since colour blocking, effervescent hues and neutral shades.

The concept is simple: Dress head to toe in similar tints in complementary clothes and accessories – otherwise known as tonal dressing.

As demonstrated by the likes of Versace that sent models down the runway dressed in violet-hued garments, and Raf Simon's stunning soft pink number from their Fall/Winter 2021 shows, the colour drenching trend is here to stay.

From summer suits to effortless layers, take inspiration from these off-duty models and fashion influencers.
