We are now in a new chapter of our lives. We knuckled down and accepted the new normal as COVID-19 swept through our world. Working from home became the new routine and comfortable clothes which started as a necessity, have quickly become a wardrobe staple.
However, as we shape our goals for 2021, I think it's time too curate a wardrobe to suit.
I recently read "Girls Raise The Bar" By Chris Brazel. Within the first few chapters she writes how we are associating black with too many aspects of our lives. It has become a colour for mourning, profession and celebration. She believes this colour detracts from you and does not provide you with life and energy...I definitely agree with this!
Indeed, she is not the only person who believes colour shapes our moods. In an interview with No Filter (by Mia Freedman), Zoe Foster-Blake stated if you are ever in a crappy mood, throw on a colour jumper and bright shade of lipstick to pick you up.
The reason I bring this to your attention is that we do not know what the future holds for 2021. We can plan, prepare and dream, however, we will need to keep adapting until we can wave goodbye to COVID-19. In order to keep our spirits high, our recommendation for this year is to ‘live colourfully’.
It's time we push all our black and grey garments to the back of the wardrobe and bring forward our florals and pastels. Trade our neutral makeup for bold and dashing palettes.
Let's brighten up our world!
