Today commemorates the official beginning of the Australian summer! Although, it doesn’t seem to be a great start as we’re predicting floods for the next three days. But having endured through a couple of weeks of sweltering heat already, there has definitely been some time to scope out the kind of colour I want in my wardrobe this season. Thanks to working in retail, there’s always plenty of inspiration, and this season is exhibiting plenty of bold reds, oranges and pinks.
As part of my work uniform for this month, I fully embraced the colours of summer with this floral flip skirt and orange wedges (both from Witchery). A lot of my costumers struggle with choosing colourful pieces over staple black because they are more difficult to coordinate, but it’s always easy to match bold and bright colours with neutral shades in the form of shoes, accessories, or as I have worn below. So essentially there is no reason to shy away from bright colours, and a lack of confidence should never get in the way. And if you’re like me and have a winter wardrobe composed of black with some dark shades close to black thrown in, then a seasonal contrast is most welcome.
Top, Skirt & Shoes: Witchery
I am a very matchy-matchy kind of person, so I couldn’t help but coordinate the skirt with the matching shoes and lippy. The colour stands out against the black top without making me look like a blood orange, although I’m never opposed to embodying fruits or wearing plenty of colour if I feel like it. If you struggle to add colour to your outfit, wearing bright lipstick always provides a nice burst of colour, and colour can also easily be incorporated through jewellery or accessories!
