Are you ready to step outside of your comfort zone this summer and experiment with some colour?

Question. What is your favorite colour? That one colour that seems to dominate your wardrobe. That colour that you are instantly drawn towards when shopping. Yes, that’s the colour I am talking about. Some of you may know may instinctively know what it is, while others may need to give it some deeper thought. Whatever the case, trust me, we’ve all got our ‘favorite colour(s). To the best of my recollection, mine has always been ‘Pink’ (yes I know I’m one of those girls…lol). As I matured, I also began to gravitate towards ‘Black’ a lot. This being said, my favorite colours are Black and Pink, and if you doubt me, just take a peep at the clear evidence in my wardrobe!

The reason for asking you to think of your favorite colour(s), is because earlier this year, I challenged myself to switch it up a bit, and experiment with some new colours. I tried using colours that I normally would not have worn often. In doing so, I realised that I now have another colour that I’m quite fond of wearing. Would you like to guess it? If you guessed ‘Yellow’- Ding, Ding, Ding- you’re absolutely right! Your girl is loving yellow these days. Its vibrance has grabbed hold of me. I also recently found out that yellow is the most luminous of all colours of the spectrum.

There is much more to fashion than simply what you wear. This leads us to my challenge to you this summer. Reinvent yourself, your patterns and your norms.

Evolve and try something different and exciting. Even if it is as simple as changing your favorite colour, and trying something new to add some spice to your sense of style. I challenge you further to try a style that you’ve never tried before. It can be a hairstyle, fashion style or even the way you do your makeup. This Summer slay in a different way and switch it up! Trust me trying something new can be exactly what you’ve been needing in your life.

I hope you have enjoyed this issue and these simple yet very insightful tips and challenges that I’ve shared with you. Remember that ‘Sometimes change can be good’.

Colour is Key
