Recently it hit me that I wear far too much neutral tones and my go to colour of choice tends to always be black. When I hit my teenage years, I started to phase out bright colours in favour of black, and if I was feeling adventurous, grey. Now that spring has finally landed, I’ve been drawn to pops of colour and wearing clothing that is eye catching and a bit different. I’m not letting my early twenties go without having more fun with the way I dress.
DREAMER T-SHIRT: LOVE
MESH HEART TOP: GLAMOUROUS
CHECKED TROUSERS: TOPSHOP
For me, an over reliance on wearing dark colours came from a lack of imagination and the ease of just throwing an outfit on knowing it will all go together. These days I don’t really care if I wear clashing colours so long as I’m having fun with it. There’s definitely a confidence thing when it comes to pulling off bright clothes that has taken me a while to get to grips with.

I truly believe that the colours you wear can have a great impact on your mood, and transitioning from dark, dull shades to bright and colourful colours can feel both refreshing and uplifting. Next time you’re shopping for clothes and have the safety blanket option in your basket, put it straight back and consider something more out of your comfort zone.
