Colour, I Fear You Not

When it comes to wearing colour, there are three categories of people.   Those who embrace it wholeheartedly, happily mixing not just two but four, sometimes five, different colours all into one same outfit.  Oftentimes throwing in a pattern or print into the mix just for the fun of it. Then there are those who, while not partial to a rainbow parade for a single look, approach colour with the comfort and ease of meeting an old friend.  There is confidence in strategically using colour as an accent point.  Or to deliver a message. And then we have the group of souls who revels in a monochromatic world.  A world dominated by black and by white.  With grey or beige or the deepest, darkest of blue making the occasional cameo.  Colour doesn’t show up here very often. Personally, I fall somewhere in between the last two categories.  My wardrobe is no longer completely dominated by blacks (see, that there is a Mustard-coloured sleeve peeking out), and I’m not all that intimidated by colour any more.  …
