Why wearing colour is so important to me

Why do I love colour so much?

  • Wearing colour makes you look and feel great
  • It makes your outfit look interesting
  • It makes you feel more alive and energised
  • It shows your own sense of style
  • Brings out the fun playful part of your personality

That’s why wearing colour is so important to me. If I was to wear all grey, I would feel grey. I would look lifeless, boring and have no energy. I used to dress like this for the City in a grey suit and white shirt and I often wondered why I felt the way I did. I now know different.

Before I trained as a Colour and Style Coach I knew that when I wore some colours I used to get lots of compliments and others I didn’t. Being in the City in the late 80’s the uniform then, was power suits in black and grey mainly. At that time, I was recruiting for the Banks in the City and it was all very conservative. How times have changed, people now love to wear colour, from the palest to the very brightest.

What if I need to dress conservatively

If you work in a very conservative environment and need to look smart you can do so, without wearing black the safe option. Have you thought about Navy? This is a very good base colour which lots of other colours work well with. Please don’t chose to wear navy with white as it is so boring. You need to add some colour.  Here are a few colours to try pink, orange, mustard, or green (Yes blue and green do go together). Also try another shade of blue, teal, any of the pastel colours, the list goes on. There is so much choice out there now, have some fun and enjoy putting your outfits together. If you would like some ideas on colour combinations take a look on my colour pallets board on Pinterest.

If you must wear black as that is your uniform, then try to accessorise with some colour. Nobody will know if you are wearing red underwear, but you will get some energy that way. Wear a coloured blouse or top underneath your jacket. If you have to wear a plain top, then you can accessorise with a statement coloured necklace or perhaps a scarf. Shoes and hand bags also add colour to an outfit.
