The fashion world can broadly be divided up into people who love colour and those who feel most comfortable in soft beiges and muted tones. It's fair to say that the fashion gods have not looked kindly upon the former crowd over the last year or two.
While I will always have time for the expensive-looking power of earthy hues, I've recently experienced a serious case of beige fatigue. This is saying something because I am firmly in the colour-ambivalent camp, and have to force myself to add notes of colour into my wardrobe of navy, brown and black. However, over the last month, I've found the sea of same-same tones has grown a little repetitive, and, in my opinion, in need of a little excitement.
Fellow monochrome lovers, this one's for you. If you're someone who cringes at the sight of rainbow brights, I've put together a minimalists cheat sheet for injecting colour into your wardrobe this October. Scroll down to see my top tips and shop the key pieces.
Layer up with a colour pop knit
STYLE NOTES: A pair of stand out strides will automatically update and make the look 100 times chicer.
STYLE NOTES: Adding a pop of colour over a classic base colour i.e black, navy, grey or white will instantly update & enhance the look
Wear A colourful base layer
Style Notes: If you're not into prints, the below tops might terrify you, but the beauty of the colourful base layer is that it can be surreptitiously slipped under anything—from white shirts to boilersuits. It'll just peep out from under pieces, offering any outfit a little bit of personality.
Inject Colour Into Your Accessories
Style Notes: This has got to be one of the easiest ways to work colour into your wardrobe this winter. Whether it's a bag, pair of shoes, hair slide or statement earrings, a colourful accessory can be grabbed last minute and used to elevate neutral staples.
Let the colour mix up your wardrobe, have fun with it, try out new things and most of all wear what you LOVE! Colour positivity really is a thing.
