Miraculously, the weather in London has somehow got colder again…I cannot remember the last time I started a blog post by not discussing the weather! I always find myself wearing darker colours in the colder months: blacks, greys and navies. It so hard to no reach for the blacks and greys in our wardrobe, but even harder to find a coloured item to throw on and style. One of my new year’s resolutions was to add more colour into my wardrobe; not that I wear black all the time, I don’t. To be honest, I actually wear a generous amount of colour. However, I know that for a lot of people, including myself from time to time, it can be easy to choose the easy option of a black knit and a pair of black skinny jeans. But, just because it’s darker in the evenings and colder outside, it doesn’t mean that we have to limit ourselves to two colours!
I have to let you into a little secret: the jumper I styled for this post is supposed to be my birthday present but, like a lot of the time, I couldn’t find anything to wear…
Aside from the fact that I’m wearing one of my birthday presents, I wanted to share with you how to style colour and my favourite pieces that are certain to not only boost your outfit, but your mood also.
If you haven’t yet come across the brand Ganni, I highly recommend that you immediately have a look at their current collection. This Danish brand based in Copenhagen, has been all over fashion month. What I particularly love about their collection is how wearable it is. If I could, I would buy it all! They actually have a pop-up store in Selfridges which features this jumper in two different colours, alongside some really cool home-wear accessories. If you’re looking for a trend piece and are willing to spend a bit more money, Ganni is your best bet. Plus, the majority of their spring collection features an array of colour, perfect for your transition wardrobe into spring.
The easiest way to add colour into your wardrobe is through knitwear. Like my Ganni knit, there are an abundance of designers (high-street or high-end) that are producing coloured knits. If you’re feeling more brave, opt for a midi skirt or dress, another easy way to add colour into your wardrobe (or outfit). Below, are some of my favourite pieces with colour:
