I love all the seasons, by the time one is coming to an end, I’m already looking forward to the next one. Each season can be so beautiful if we remember to look up from our little worlds once in a while.
However, one of the depressing things about the season of Winter for me is the sea of black and grey you see on people as well as in the sky most days. Winter always appears darker and greyer to me because you very rarely see a bright colour anywhere. Christmas is obviously very different as it’s a wonderful time of year for seeing lots of bright colours and people don’t give a second thought to wearing those gorgeous reds and greens, etc. that make us feel festive and cheerful. But come January, black and grey appears a lot more.
Don’t get me wrong, there is definitely a place for black and grey in our wardrobes but they don’t need to appear every day…
The Spring, Summer and Autumn months are a perfect sea of vivid colour in nature and I hear so many people commenting on just how beautiful the world is when you walk outside and see those bright colours that Mother nature produces so gloriously.
Us humans LOVE colour!
So why do we wait until Winter is over before we start wearing colours that make us feel happy? I’m sure seeing a few bright and beautiful colours would brighten up everyone’s day, especially the person wearing them. Putting on a lovely vivid colour always makes me feel cheerful.
The dreary dark colours we tend to pick at this time of year make our skin look grey and washed out. Our Summer glows have faded already… we don’t need to make it worse by highlighting this fact!
When picking the right colours to wear, look for colours that work well with your skin tone and make you glow. If you aren’t sure what those colours are, there are lots of online quizzes that can point you in the right direction 🙂 But alternatively, just hold the piece of clothing near your face… does your face light up and your skin look like it’s glowing? Yes? Buy it! The wrong colours will make your skin tone look dull and lifeless.
There are, of course, tones of colour that work better in certain seasons, brighter colours like fuchsia pink or lime green might work better in Summer whilst the less intense burgundy or khaki green might be better suited to the Winter months but the point is…colour. Wear the shade of colour that suits you and ditch the #allblackeverything outfit once in a while.
Who knows, we might just make the sun come out?! 😀
