With the weather being so bleak for so long, I’ve definitely found myself in a style rut- particularly when it comes to colours.
Black, camel, burgundy and khaki are my go-tos. Not that there’s anything wrong with that palette (they’re just so easy to piece together!), but for spring/summer I want to challenge myself to embrace a rainbow of colours instead of only safe options.
I always forget supermarkets sell clothes. My friends in high school used to find amazing pieces in Tesco of all places, so I thought I’d have a look online. I was not disappointed. Their suede pieces at the moment are absolutely amazing. This skirt cost £35! It comes in a variety of colours too, and there’s a biker jacket and gilet to match.
I also found this blouse on Tesco’s website, by the brand Only One. I feel it’s very Alexa Chung and I’ve teamed it with so many things so far.
I’m terrible for never having the right bag to complete an outfit as I never buy them! I got this mustard one recently as a last minute purchase for my birthday night out. It worked out well though, as I love this colour combo! Even a little surprise colour injection can make an outfit go from fine to fabulous.
I may not have achieved a rainbow look quite yet, but I am feeling a bit more inspired to shake up my shopping habits.
So next time you’re out shopping, why not challenge yourself and play with new colours?
