Getting back to my roots this morning – a clothes post!
During many conversations with friends, colleagues and all of you, there seems to be some serious resistance about too much colour or too big-a-pattern. Reading between the lines, I hear too many women worried about standing out and being noticed.
Bugger it! Why not wear pieces you love.
A favourite pattern of mine (and many of you!) is houndstooth – the black and white checkered pattern. I have several houndstooth pieces, including one of my favourite dresses of all time. With a wardrobe bursting with clothes, naturally I also have a couple of fab Ralph Lauren tops – one being a high necked, short sleeve piece. I personally don’t think it’s a particularly flattering top on me. I have a short neck, so a high neck top isn’t ideal. The material is also quite thin and clingy, so again not overly flattering me. But, I love it.
In the pics below, I have paired this top with a fav pair of Jones New York green pants. If you don’t want to stand out, brightly coloured pants may not be the best choice.
What pieces do you love?
