Neighbourhood colours

So here’s the thing.  Black goes with everything.  And black and white are classic go to colours when you don’t know what to wear.  I do it all the time.  I need to get out the door and do 100 unglamourous jobs all due yesterday. So I pull out my trusted black pants and white shirt and off I go.  But really I find that’s not a reflection of myself.  I don’t feel creative like this and it always makes me feel faded.  If that’s a way to explain it!!  So in exasperation, I sat down and took a look at my designs and colour matching moodboards.  I realised I already know what to do.  I do it for my designs and I understand it for styling purposes but I wasn’t reflecting it in my wardrobe.  So now I have set a goal to wear neighbourhood colours at least once a week.  And guess what?  That’s my happiest day J

What are neighbourhood colours?  Well basically if you think of a rainbow they are the colours that live side by side.  It’s the red&pink, pink&orange, navy&blue, blue&green, yellow&white etc.  If it works in nature then it works with clothing!!!  Try it, it’s been around in fashion forever.
