SPORT CHIC

I am sure that you have all notice by now that there is a lack of colour in my wardrobe; I appreciate colour, more so in art, life and other things though. Somehow black, greys and white speaks more to who I am than any colour or print put together. I have just always been this way. I don't need the extra attention colourful outfits tend to get. I have worn colour before (believe it or not) to please a certain boy or two (yes I had my weak moments) but now I fully know who I am and what I want to represent. Obviously for my work in design I have to be open-minded, which I am. I have worked, and made many garments/paintings in colour as well as worked with lots of prints for projects and clients.

I am really riding this "Sporty Chic" trend as much as I can, it is easy and comfy. Not many people where I live understand what I am wearing; I love their faces when they look stare at me with confusion written all over them. I get the giggles on the inside. Why not?! Let's all be different, love our style and ideas as we are and not have the intent to please anyone but ourselves, let it be in techno-colours, neon or solids.

  46. Totally agree, blacks & neutrals speak to me more too, I very rarely wear colour at all these days. With art, interiors .etc I love colour though, Pop Art is one of my favourite movements, but you'd never guess it from looking at my monochrome way of dressing!
    PS: Love those sweatpant shorts & those heels!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Very casual chic, but I adore it! I was just discussing the pros of a limited color wardrobe...it's not me but it's really a brilliant idea...

  54. I think you can make just as much of a statement without color. And you do! Those shorts with that blazer... it's perfect. Don't you love that feeling you get when you wear a killer outfit and unfashionable people think you're a freak? It's the best.

    May the force be with you.
