It’s the concept of dressing top-to-toe in one colour. It’s more than a column of colour as it encompasses different tones and textures.
The art to getting it right is to choose a flattering shade; one that looks amazing on you, because let’s face it, there’s going to be a lot of it on display!
Whether you choose a bold colour for impact, or something more understated and muted for a sophisticated look, colour drenching can be a great way to combine clothes that you already have in your wardrobe.
This isn’t a post that anyone thought would be written but 2020 hasn’t really shaped up to conform with the 21st Century has it? As clothes shops are reopening after lockdown, there’ll be a new normal – at least for a while.
Leisurely browsing with the occasional coffee stop is something that we can but dream of. Instead, we’ll be faced with the prospect of queuing as shops limit the number of customers at any one time, one-way systems, sanitiser stations, the loss of changing rooms and sometimes toilets and, of course, maintaining a strict social distance.
Whilst red is the colour most often seen at this time of year, do you find it a difficult colour to wear?
I’ve heard many people say they shy away from wearing red because either they don’t believe they can wear it, or that IT wears them, but I promise you there’s a perfect shade of red for everyone so I’ve rounded up some fabulous shades that might tempt you, or even me, to change your mind.
I was totally confused in my late 30’s about what colours suited me. A Cruella De Vil white streak had appeared in my hair when I was quite young and, as it progressed, less and less seemed to suit me anymore but I didn’t connect the two.
If asked, I used to say that the colour of my eyes were anything from light grey to dark blue ‘depending on the light’. How wrong was I to think the light had anything to do with it!
Going grey early is a family trait so I wasn’t very worried about that per se but eventually I realised that no matter what I was wearing, whilst I wanted to look tanned and healthy instead I just looked pale all the time!
How to be a ‘Best Dressed Wedding Guest’ The Royal wedding had me glued to my TV screen a couple of weeks ago as it was so wonderful to see so many of the guests arriving at St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle for the ceremony in vibrant colours and beautiful styles.
I hope you were doing the same.
Not everyone was though, I had to smile when a totally confused Male guest told me “the TV was on in the airport and everybody was watching it even though the ceremony hadn’t started….” yee Gods, slaps forehead etc 🙂
