OK, so my last blog was about the colour black, which I happen to love, but that doesn’t mean to say that I don’t love colour as well! Nobody said that I have to have limits, lol!
Sometimes, wearing the brightest of colours can truly lift your spirits and brighten your day. I know, it’s weird, but it’s true!
I wear a lot of colours, but mostly in Spring and Summer (which are the seasons that are predominantly known for wearing colourful clothing), but that doesn’t mean you can’t wear some bright colours in Autumn and Winter as well.
I have lots of coloured long sleeve tops and knitwear in my boutique at the moment, that are selling just as well as the usual Autumn and Winter suspects (black, grey, brown etc.). Is it because Sawtell is a beachside destination and people associate colour with the beach, blue water, golden sand, coloured beach towels, bright beach umbrellas etc.?
The colder months are pretty much known for dreary, drab, grey days. Wouldn’t you think though, that’s when you should be wearing colour, so that it does brighten your day, especially in places that are very bleak and colourless?
Mmmmmmm, food for thought.
I know that when I have visited cities in Winter, I have noticed in restaurants, bars, cafes etc. there has been an absolute lack of colour. Think about it - how often do you see Winter jackets, coats etc. in lime green, hot pink or cobalt blue? Not very often, that’s for sure. Winter coats, jackets etc. are usually black, grey, taupe or brown and I think that it has a lot to do with the price. With a Winter coat, it is going to cost you more than just a shirt or jumper, therefore you want to make it a simple colour, as it won’t date and will pretty much match just about everything in your Winter wardrobe.
So now, on this cold morning in beautiful Sawtell, I have to get dressed for work, so do I wear black, grey, brown, pink, orange, blue or green?
