As you all know, I am not a big fun of colour, as in bright that is. But, as there always is a but, looking through one of my favourite sites, which is “Who What Wear”, I saw a post about bold colours. Now, I perhaps don’t agree with everything, what I do agree with is: it is good practice to use a shade other than black now and again and is possible to use brights occasionally. These are the three ideas I like and use myself:
1. Wear just one bright accessory, like a bag, shoes or scarf, etc. Love this particular one. I often use it.
Mildly coloured bags:
Brightly coloured bags:
A gorgeous bright one: A reasonable sized one:
Of course there are plenty of other accessories one can use….
2. Wear a bright blazer or a coat over an all black outfit. This can be nice too.
3. Wear a one colour outfit that isn’t black. Here it becomes tricky…. They swear by red for 2015. I like red, I do, but an entire outfit is difficult. Perhaps a subtler colour? Still, it is worth a try…
(I feel one needs to be blond in order to wear this one…)
4. I know I said 3!! This is mine: if everything else fails, at least try with a bright red lipstick! Essential, in this case, to be extremely demure in everything else. The risk, as you well know, is to look common rather than chic.
