Winter colour blocking

Take a deep breathe of fresh air and take a stance against monotonous black by adding bright blocks of colour to your outfit!

Autumn/Winter has brought a light chill to the air, and the blue sky looks ever so crisp!

During my city walks, I have rejoiced in seeing ladies stand out from the crowd in bright indigo hued jackets…a flash of crimson and claret…a dazzling emerald green dress peeks out from a dark coat. I’ve even seen a bright fluro yellow scarf thrown on to ward off the winter chill.

To build up your confidence step-by-step, start with your best trusty neutrals (white, grey, tan, brown or yes, even black), and swap a neutral piece for a coloured one. Add a standout coloured jacket to complete the statement look. Or perhaps add a surprising colour pop with a trendy purse in an unexpected hue!

Inspiration for you…no excuses for wearing a boring outfit this winter!


Next, as you start to love wearing colour, challenge yourself to swap all your usual neutrals for some bold colours or prints. (Hint, a fabulous colour-blocked dress is an effortless way to wear statement colour!)

For those already comfortable in colour, try bolder combinations like a gorgeous green + a dash of fuschia or coral; or regal cobalt blue with sunshine yellow. Get noticed and take your look to the next level with a coloured belt, accessories or coloured shoes!

To ensure your look isn’t overboard…stick to one bold colour for overall effect, one accent bright colour, and keep it all ultra classy by adding in one neutral.
