To Colour Or Not To Colour?

As we all may have noticed, monochrome dressing has become extremely popular over the past few years and Instagram is now fully loaded with “inspo pages” of minimalistic chic. Many major fashion influencers have made the “black/white/grey everyday” their fashion motto and with this, encouraging us all to lean towards minimalistic and monotone clothing choices. I mean, how can you not, there’s nothing more traditional and elegant than black right? But how far can you really go with your outfits when you only have three colours to chose from…

Not going to deny this, I am very guilty of sticking to the classics myself… black, white, grey, beige. There is something very clean about limited colour pallet. It doesn’t feel fussy and its always a safe choice, you know you can’t go wrong with it. Dare I say that maybe, the safe zone of monochrome can sometimes be the lazy zone? I know that it is certainly the case for me. When I have no idea what to wear, I always go for black/white/denim combination. The same applies to this outfit too. The most comfortable, easiest to wear Zara coord that goes with anything – heels, trainers, sandals, ballerinas… you name it. Very safe choice that always proves to be a favourite with the fashion crowd. 

As monochrome still dominates my wardrobe, I can’t help but envy those who are so great with colour! Regardless of how “in” monochrome might be right now, there is no denying that working with many colours and putting them together accordingly is far more difficult than throwing on a pair of jeans and a white shirt. I do try to experiment, as you might have seen in my previous post, but I find it scary and I think it might be a little while before I introduce those pinks, greens and yellows! If you need some “bright wardrobe” inspiration just like me, I’ve put together a list of influencers, who are great at working with colour:
