It's the same every year: Come winter I start wearing black. Black tights, black trousers, black tops, even black underwear… Summer is just the opposite – very white orientated. And for years now I've been wondering: Why not wear more white in winter? Wouldn't this help to bring some light and optimism into the dark days?
It sounds so easy, but I realised it's anything but… 1st, you need to be the neatest person on the planet not to smudge your beautiful white clothes with wintery grime. 2nd, I'm not a colour expert, but it seems to me that plain white can look quite harsh on winter days, especially when there is snow. And 3rd, the main problem: Shoes! I don’t know about you, but I do not own any warm shoes in light colours (except uggish ones, but they are not really for wearing anywhere but on Australian beaches, are they?). White trousers and black shoes? A definite No-No; or am I being too conservative here?
Creamy colours or beige though, well, that’s a totally different matter…
