THE POWER OF RED

The recent exploration of colour on my Instagram has left me thinking, will I ever rightly understand my personal style?  I've always homed in on navy, grey's, white and black (which I'm happy with), but recently whether it's down to the good weather we've been having or merely curiosity I've found myself bravely wearing bolder colours like never before. This tomato red dress from COS paired with an indigo blue Caron Callahan workwear jacket is a firm favourite right now.  

I revel in a simple style, more than anything. I've tried and tested trendy impulse buys, I've attempted other forms of dressing, but in the end, I always come back to those clean lines and more classic cuts. Something's got me yearning to push my style though, to keep 'minimal' interesting and creative, and I think this is why an exploration of brighter hues has come in to play. 

In the past red has felt too strong a colour to pull off, it's bold, and it's bolshy - it's everything I'm not. But when red comes in the form of straight cut pleated trousers, a tested shape that I know works for me; I'm comfortably into it.
