Let’s be short & sweet today!

When I look back at it now, my neutral coloured clothes were my boring lifesavers. It was because I was so afraid of colour, because to me, wearing a bold colour meant that I wanted to stand out, and that was the LAST thing that I ever wanted! I just wanted to be dressed and covered up.

Now, I’ve definitely learned how to manipulate colours, even neutrals, so that it can still look really good rather than really bland. Neutrals are a great way to create a sense of balance in an outfit by toning it down a bit so you aren’t wearing too much bold colours, or too much prints, or so forth. If you think about it now, a simple one coloured tee can transform into a striped top, or a tank top for layering, or a full sleeve so you can place a sleeveless piece over. Bam, see how simple it is?

What is your favourite neutral article? Mine is any simply coloured tee. =)
