The other day I was talking to a lady who told me she always wore dull colors, such as black and gray. She considered herself to be overweight and thought dull colors could hide her imperfections. And while that may be so, she was depriving herself of what she really wanted. She told me she would just love to wear color and be able to pull it off. I did my best to persuade her to add more color, but she just couldn’t. I thought that was interesting. Though wearing dull colors may very well hide those extra pounds, it is not fun. Adding color to your wardrobe instantly lifts your mood and creates a positive outlook on life. It helps you feel better about yourself and your surroundings. So many people will only wear black and/or gray. And though that’s not necessarily a bad thing, it just honestly makes you look drab. So my advice to you to today, reader, is this. Add color to your wardrobe. Don’t be one of those people who only shop for dull pieces of clothing. If you just really really have to wear black or gray, stop by the scarf aisle or even the purse aisle. Pick you up a bright neon clutch, or a hot pink scarf. Add some blue heels to your outfit, and finish off with some bright, bold and big jewelry. And though you may still have a black top and bottom on, the colorful accessories will enhance your look and even make you smile. And if you’re willing to go even further, go buy some colorful pants! Be willing to step out and try new things. Don’t just go with you have been doing for the past so many years. Explore, have fun and be colorful.
