I’m not a risk taker in general life. I pay for parking when required. I return library books on or before their due date. I don’t eat ham past its use by date. I pay my taxes.
But sometimes I like to break fashion rules. I like to do the opposite to what the crowd is doing. Just to be different. And to stand out a little too. These are the rules I like to break:
- Only wear pastels in summer
- Sequins are for night time only
- Only wear shorts in summer
- Sneakers are only for the gym
- Trackies should not be worn outside the house
- Sunglasses should be a neutral colour
Being a non-conformist can be lots of fun. I really enjoy playing around with colours, patterns and trends and trying things that you didn’t think would work. Sometimes they don’t. But sometime they do!
My favourite rules to break are the colour ones. I love to wear pastels and bright colours during the winter months. It lightens my mood, keeps me cheerful and I feel good. I tend to stick to the cooler tones that I know suit me most (thank you Nutrimetics colour wheel) like pastel pinks, blues and greens.
So today I wanted to share an outfit that feels very non-conformist for the winter months but I really love wearing it.
Wearing mint coloured coat by Wish, dress by Metalicus, belt by Paul Dane, boots by Wittner and scarf from a few years ago.
I love a non-black coat in winter. Such a great opportunity to show your style personality and keep things interesting. And the white dress is very unwinter too but the thick cotton fabric kept me quite snug and again, I felt good to be wearing something other than grey or black. Adding a bright scarf and bright lipstick just felt like the right thing to do
Here’s a closer shot of the coat when I wore it with a tunic dress last week:
