Each fashion season I add a few “new to me” colours to my wardrobe. This is not an essential strategy, but I find that it’s a great way to refresh my style. This Spring and Summer I dabbled with a little neon pink and yellow, and brought back light blue. It’s been many, many years since I’ve worn these colours and I’m enjoying the nostalgic update.

So far, my “new to me” colour for Fall, courtesy of the Nordstrom anniversary sale, is blush pink. I intend mixing the pastel with black, grey and white, and brights. And like last year, I am still on a quest to add more ink blue to my wardrobe. It’s not a replacement for black, but a complement to it. Greg recently bought me a great boxy, mixed media, ink blue pullover for my birthday. I can’t wait to wear it when the weather cools down. 

Dark reds and berries are strong for Fall 2012. That colour spectrum is not on my radar because I prefer sour, bright reds. But I’m not ruling it out just yet because wearing muted shades with brights does tickle my fancy. 

Over to you. Which “new to you” colours have you added to your style for Spring and Summer? Which new to you colours are you thinking of adding for Fall and Winter?
