Why You Should Start Wearing More Color Immediately

More color, please!

We believe in the power of color!

Let me start off with a bold statement: We believe in the power of color!

That should be obvious to you, given that our tagline is “More Color, Please!” Clearly we are all about color! And wearing color is truly the only way I know how to dress.

As I was cleaning out my closet last week, I realized that I don’t even own a white button down shirt or some of the other neutral items often considered closet essentials. Neutrals don’t do anything for me!

But I know wearing color doesn’t come as easily for some people. I hear it all the time from you – even some of you who embrace colors in other areas of life often find it hard to wear color.

Sometimes people tell me they are afraid of standing out too much if they wear color. Sometimes people tell me they aren’t sure how to wear color. Or sometimes people tell me that they don’t know what color to wear.

Well, we are here to address all those concerns! We are here to persuade you to add more color to your wardrobe. We are here to convince you to step out of your comfort zone and wear more color!

    One of my first jobs after college was working at a Lilly Pulitzer store. My closet went from being very neutral to very colorful in a hurry! Ever since, I have maintained a balance of basic neutrals (black/brown/grey bottoms) that I enjoy mixing with colorful tops. Also, your comment about not owning a white button-down made me laugh. I don’t remember the last time I had a plain white button-down, but for a much more practical reason. I was always staining them!

    1. LOL – that too, Lee! They wrinkle too easily and get messy too easily.
