“Today I went shopping and this is what I found…”
Following on from my last post featuring my favourite white-hot pieces from Witchery, I’ve put together another set for you – again from Witchery – this time a few basic neutrals. Remember girls, no matter how much neon or pastel is “in” you will always need these basics if you want to build a wardrobe that works season-in, season-out.
A few tips:
- Be careful if you’ve decided to follow the graphic prints trend coupled with the neon brights. You can run the risk of looking like a clown if you over-do it. Step gently and break things up a little with light neutrals. For example, if you’re wearing bright prints, tone it down with a lovely neutral bag and maybe simple, nude shoes. If you’re doing neutrals or simple pastels, you may want to give your outfit a bit of a trend-punch with some brighter accessories. Try a pop of colour with either a bag or shoe or perhaps a statement necklace or summer-scarf. The options are endless.
- Remember the fit & flare principle. If you’re doing the skinny-leg jeans, go for a little volume on top to soften the look. If you’re doing loose, soft, luxe cargoes go for fitted on top to balance your silhouette and keep some shape.
- What’s your budget? Be realistic. Don’t blow it all on a couple of wild neon pieces that you may simply hate next season. If you choose a statement dress of bold, bright flowers, it will probably be quite memorable. If you wear it everywhere, you may feel conscious that you’re “in that dress again”. A simple bright sheath is easier to turn into a few different looks with a change of accessories and jackets, so will probably give you much more bang for your buck.
What do you think of this season’s high-vis clothing? Are you game? Or are you more of a pastel girl? The great thing about this season is you can choose either and you’ll still be “on trend” if that matters to you!
