What and Where
If there’s any outfit, colour ensemble that I find really difficult together – it’s neutrals. I may have mentioned once or twice that my closet consists of mostly dark colours – greys and blacks are the most dominant, followed by bold colours and the random prints/stripes or florals.
I love neutrals. There is something chic and easy breezy about them that I personally think its so effortless to look so sexy in them in a very fresh and not trying too hard way. But that’s the thing, when I wear neutrals – I am trying too hard!
Every man and woman knows putting black on is as easy as counting 1-2-3. Unless of course you’re a baby and you’re quite not there yet. The point is, with black – is like Kevlar, it’s a fashion protection. You most likely won’t get criticized for wearing it (unless of course, you were going to La Nuit Blanche) but you ain’t winning the most avant-garde in fashion award either.
Sometimes, we need to make a conscious decision that we have to push ourselves outside of our fashion comfort zone. Alors voila! Here’s my concerted attempt to be all-neutral, I’m neither left-wing or right-wing. I’m neither black or blue.
