clothes, I’m looking to some inspiration from some people who know.how.to.dress. I
remember when I was travelling that I would often look into my backpack (aka wardrobe)
and think ‘all my clothes are either blue or pink.’ Seriously, everything I owned was either
blue, pink- maybe the odd purple- or white, cos ya know- I was in the sun.
monochrome. I mean, my wardrobe isn’t all monochrome, just all I seem to wear
from it is.
Now I don’t want to start wearing every-colour-under-the-sun-together-because-it’s-fun,
but a subtle nod to a rich, luxurious colour is a very chic way of using colour
to your advantage.
Above is Garance Dore’s great combination of jean shirt and green parka leather jacket
teamed with a polka dot pencil skirt that pulls the look together in a very elegant and
feminine way. (Plus a Canon 5D camera that I was really lusting over whilst taking
colour, which works in brightening up an otherwise very graphic/boring shoe.
