Inject some colour in your wardrobe

Everyone is born with a certain inclination towards colour. By the time we grow up we may have lost some of that personal colour sense.

The colour purple

I was at a wedding recently where the colour purple was a dominant shade of hat, dress, shoes, etc. Now I have never really been that much of a fan, but given that come autumn/winter, we are going to see 50 shades of it everywhere, I thought I would give it a chance.

To help you with planning your purple adventure, here are some of my top tips.

You should wear colours that complement these natural colours. Wearing the right colours enhances your image and makes you look refreshed, younger, and thinner.
