I don’t know what’s come over me this season. Black has been banished to the back of my wardrobe. If it’s not colour, it’s not on.
And when I’m out shopping with clients, the same thing is happening to them. It’s like we’re all under a retail spell, looking for new and exciting ways to show our more “colourful” personalities.
Where once I would have contented myself with a red pair of shoes or an orange scarf, I’m now looking to combine whole blocks of colour. With minimal restraint being exercised.
Just yesterday I wore yellow, orange, red and turquoise. In the one outfit. Granted it was Melbourne Cup but the former beige self would have opted for a splash of colour worked back with black.
Next on my fashion radar? Coloured jeans.
