I was feeling a little bold today, so I reached into my closet for this vibrant and daring coat that I purchased from Forever 21 a while ago. This reminded me that I had a set of photos wearing it sometime last year, so here they are (better late than never right?). Every time I wear this coat, I receive lots of compliments and questions as everyone is curious where I had got it from. Most people don’t believe me when I tell them it’s from Forever 21, but I’ll say this – the company has really stepped up its fashion game.
For the most part, I invest in monochrome colours when it comes to outerwear, because it’s more universally flattering. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t from time to time invest in bright pieces, because I sure do. Styling different colours, patterns and textures together can be uber fun.
If you want to try new colours or trends this year, you can begin by doing it subtly like me – wear a delicate white top (or a simple shirt) and pair it with some black denims. This way you can get more comfortable with wearing colours and gain more confidence in wearing more colourful and bolder pieces later on. Perhaps you’ll get so comfortable that you might try out a colour suit, a set of punchy prints or a daring dress.
Whatever it may be, have fun styling and wearing colours. I can’t wait to show you some of my favourite mix n’ match of colours for this Spring – stay tuned!
