When it comes to colour and my wardrobe, I tend to have a bit of a split personality. On some days, I wear nothing but black, white and grey. On other days, I’m a head-to-toe mash up of bright colours and loud prints. It really depends on how I’m feeling, but when most balanced, I come up with an outfit like this—a perfect dose of both sides. Introducing colour and print to your wardrobe can be tricky, but I think the key to doing so is pairing them with a neutral. If you find leather pants equally scary, you could easily substitute for a pair of jeans, shorts or a skirt in the fabric of your choice. Remember to keep your “standout item” to one piece, complement it with the next and accent with the rest (a.k.a. accessories).
