I have a problem – I am addicted to neutrals. If you were to walk into my closet, you would see what I mean. I always love seeing people pull off a bright and colorful outfit, but for some reason, I never reach for colors when I am out shopping. So, lately I have made a conscious effort to buy more fun and colorful clothes and shoes.
Since I don’t want to buy something I know I will never wear, I have tried to find great pieces that I can style in a variety of ways and mix with multiple colors. For example, I bought myself an awesome vibrant red sweater last season and I have never worn it. Red is having such a moment right now, but not for me! That beautiful red that has taken over the fashion scene does not work with my complexion. Total bummer. I have tried repeatedly to make it work, but it’s just not meant to be.
I am no different than anyone else in that I, too, want to fit in. However, as I get older and wiser I have grown to appreciate the fact that creating your own trend is much more fun! Since bright red nor neon yellow (another color that’s having a major moment) will never work for me, I am learning to embrace the colors that look the best on me – like pink.
Although wearing pink can make you look like a 10 year old little girl, I absolutely loved this look! It was such a cozy outfit but I felt so chic and fabulous – outfit perfection! Regardless of what is on trend, the trick is to find what works best with your style and body type. No matter what color or pattern you’re wearing, the goal is to feel confident in yourself!
