Hopefully you all kept dry on the weekend, as Pam passed through. A reminder of how fast the weather in New Zealand can change and how flexible our wardrobes need to be!
This season there is a huge amount of grey in the shops. This is wonderful news as it gives a softer look than the usual black, (which for most of us can be terribly aging). If you are a Deep or Clear Winter you will look amazing in black; if not, it’s likely you will look more attractive in some form of grey.
Grey of course can be a light grey, a dark charcoal grey, a warm green grey, a cool blue grey, a sharp shiny grey or a muted soft grey, so there is a grey to suit everyone. As well as shade, it’s important to choose the right style too for your personality and body shape.
Try adding accents of one of your best colours to grey to improve the colour balance. Earrings in your colour and the right lipstick, for example, can make a huge difference. Look at jewellery, scarves and shoes too. Don’t stick to black, it’s too harsh. If it’s a sheer garment, you can change its colour slightly by the colour of your slip. They don’t have to be only black or white.
