2x5 COLOUR, PATTERN AND TEXTURE IN WINTER
Today I want to talk a bit about colour. If you've been reading for a while, you'll know I've mentioned on here that I felt like my fall wardrobe didn't feel colourful enough, and so I tried to go out of my way to include more colour in the winter one. Mainly because a lot of people subconsciously reach for muted colours or a black and white palette during the cold months. It just feels natural to dress gloomily in the winter and cheerfully in the summer. Do you find that too? If you think about it, each season calls for different kind of colour palette. Spring - pastels, summer - vibrant and bright colours, autumn - deep rich tones and winter - is for muted and monochromatic.
And after a few cold months a lot of us will feel a bit bored with our wardrobe. I mean, if I wear black, grey and beige for a month I definitely feel like something is missing. So the other day I decided to put the colours together. Green cords, red plaid shirt, cognac shoes and bag and a shearling jacket. Yes, neither of them are super bright or anything but they are just what I needed. A little colour pick-me-up.
I also love the texture of these pieces. The lines on the cords, the heavy knit jumper, mini chevron scarf, the shearling part of the jacket, even my hair! I think it makes for quite an interesting combination.
Hope you're having a lovely Sunday and I can promise you there will be two more outfits up this week. One of them I'm particularly fond of. You can subscribe through the link in the sidebar and you'll be notified when it's posted.
Have a great day :-)
