Black, grey, navy. The colours that everyone seems to be wearing all the time now that the darkness of the winter-months has descended. But, honestly, who can avoid this faultless, effortless trick when dressing in gloomy morning-darkness? I’m guilty of dressing in monotones too.
Fear not, though. We don’t all have to walk around as winter-clichés. Take inspiration from “Par-delà Les Nuages” shoot – by David Sims – in Vogue Paris (Octobre 2011).
Rule One: Amalgamate different textures. Wool and Leather, Silk and tweed. Funk it up!
Rule Two: Accessorise. Maybe, a chunky black knit and a gold collar-necklace. Be whimsical! And pay attention to details – perhaps new silver buttons for an oldie-grey shirt?
Rule Three: Bold make-up. Sometimes sharp brows, and a bright lip goes a long way.
Don’t be drab in black.
