It’s ok to wear black (but blue is also fine)

Have you ever had to deal with that annoying question “why are you dressed all in black? Are you going to a funeral or something?”. Well, I can answer with a solid yes. And you know what? Who cares. I’m a grown up girl and I can stand for my choices.

Plus, wearing solid, neutral colors is very helpful when you want to get dressed in a breeze and felt super comfortable in your own skin.

I’m not telling you to dress monochromatic or to ditch all the prints; I love breton stripes and a little bit of leopard or snakeskin here and there, but having a crush on prints can be tricky, because it’s difficult to mix and match them.

The same thing happends when you buy 1.000 different colours; so sticking to a neutral palette is usually the best choice, because it means that everything you own can be coordinated, so it enables you to own few, but better and better chosen pieces of clothing.

If you take a look at my previous post you’ll easily understand what I’m talking about: the picture shows a few items I basically really own, and they’re quite in a palette of solid dark and bright colours.

My favourite dark colours are black, blue and grey, with a little kaki; my brights are white, pale pink, light gray, beige; I prefer to add a pop of colour with accessories, particularly scarves and shoes; I’ve recently bought a pair of hot pink ballet flats from Longchamp and I love them, I wear them with every outfit, and they fit all of my style options.

Just take a look at how many tops can fit a simple pair of grey pants to create a polished and interesting look; aren’t you loving it? Think of how easier it would be to get dressed in the morning, even when you’re in a hurry!
