We have nearly kissed goodbye to summer for another year, yet this doesn’t mean you can’t bring some sunshine to the winter months ahead. When it comes to the colder months a lot of people’s wardrobes tend to automatically become dull and boring. A colour palette of black, grey and cream seems to form. But why can’t we keep the vibrancy running through the dull and dreary period? Surely this is the time when we need colour the most? It seems the trend setters and the leading fashion designers of the world would agree as block colour really took over the runway in the recent fashion weeks.
After all, pink is the colour of winter this year. That’s right; pink. Not black! Not grey! Not brown! And we aren’t just talking about dusty pinks and winter wonderland pale pinks. Fuchsia and vibrant shades are set to run riot. Other colours which are set to make a massive impression over the months ahead are plum, cobalt blue and red. Don’t feel the need to tone these colours down either. It is all in the name; block colour. Co-ordinates are really in fashion at the moment. Why not go for a cobalt blue blazer with a pair of matching wide leg trousers? Or why not go for a pink leather pencil skirt with a pink woollen jumper? You can really turn heads in these block colour ensembles.
Nevertheless, going for such a bold and striking look is not everybody’s cup of tea. Yet this does not mean that the block colour trend is not for you. It simply means you need to work it in a different way. Why not match an accessory to one item of your clothing rather than going for two garments? You could wear a pair of skinny jeans and some ankle boots and then finish off the look with a red shirt and a red watch? Or, what about a cobalt blue shift dress with a pair of blue earrings? A watch is definitely a good place to start though. You can rest assured that a watch will be the first accessory everyone notices. This is what turns heads.
There is no better time to bring out the vibrancy in your wardrobe than over the few months ahead. Just because the weather is going to be dreary and dull does not mean your wardrobe has to follow suit. Standout from the crowd with this year’s hottest trend; block colour, and you will keep the sun shining all throughout the winter period. The only question is; what colour should you go for first? Do you feel like going bold in blue? Or what about princess perfect in pink? Or how about going rosy in red? Don’t hold back!
