Colour to enliven this seasons neutrals

A shot of colour can be like a shot of adrenalin to our wardrobes. One way to add colour is to pick one  of this seasons “in” colours, making sure that it suits your skin tone, and add it to your neutrals. An instant wardrobe “face lift”!

Bright powerful blue adds intensity to black.

Grey is the perfect foil to show off delicate shades of pink and helps to keep the outfit grown up.

I disagree with the old saying “blue and green should never be seen without a colour in between.” I think deep forest green and navy can be worn harmoniously together.

    The grey and pink are soft and yet rich at the same time. This year’s acai (or purple, as I like to call it) would also mix in nicely with pink and grey. I have grey in my wardrobe, but very little pink. Your pink/grey capsule is very seductive to me.

    It would definitely be the grey and pink for me. Love the outfit.

    I love the grey and pink combination, although it doesn’t work for my skin tone (too cool).

    I remember my tante Colette saying that if you have to go to hospital, always take something pink with you. It’ll cheer you up. Must be a French thing.

    Cheers, M-T

    I love all those colour combos! I wear cobalt blue and grass green together as well as navy and teal and navy and forest green.

    I can’t really get away with baby pink, but I can sneak it in with various nefarious tricks…
