A wise man (Bill Blass, American fashion designer) once said, ‘When in doubt wear red’.
I love this mantra—especially at this time of year when a bit of colour can do wonders for a person’s psyche. Red is such a fabulous colour, with so many tones and shades. And if you are having trouble deciding what to wear, something red is a great option.
In my younger days I used to wear a lot of black. I’m not sure if I thought it made me look sophisticated or scary. It was just such an easy option. Maybe a lazy option is more to the point. I didn’t really have to put much thought into an outfit because I just relied on the old black with black combo.
Now that I have my own shop full of gorgeous clothes that are every colour of the rainbow I’ve realised that colour is such an important tool for making you feel good about yourself. It can also take you out of your comfort zone and make you be brave and bold. Rather than hiding in the shadows, embrace colour and see where it takes you.
