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.
