Lets face it January and February are the dullest and greyest (is that an adjective?) of all the UK winter months. No wonder we all get so excited when the bright yellow daffodils finally emerge, colour! The power of colour should never be underestimated. In fact wearing Pantone’s colour of the year Living Coral, took me by surprise last week. It made me feel cheerful when I wore it!

PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral: “An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energizes and enlivens with a softer edge…”
The power of colour should never be underestimated.
The Power of Colour:
I believe that colour like our hormones exerts a powerful influence over our lives. Even if you are a fan of black and white, or neutral you are still choosing to relate to certain tones and understanding that you prefer them to other colours/tones/hues or shades. Bright peach or living coral, what ever you decide to call this colour, is warm to look at, natural but not neon, and has an easy affinity with nature, albeit more floral and less greenery…
Living Coral is evocative of how coral reefs provide shelter to a diverse kaleidoscope of colour.
Living Coral is Already in my Wardrobe:
Surprisingly I found at least four pieces of Living Coral already in my wardrobe. Sharing with you a much loved and well worn jumper from ‘And Other stories’ I will share a sleeveless coral dress with you, also from ‘& Other Stories’ when its warmer!
I bought this knit in the sale last year, I buy winter stuff in the summer sale and summer stuff in the winter sale, then save it to wear for later. I teamed it with a pair Marks & Spencer’s ecru (not white!) wide cut, high waisted, slightly cropped jeans. By the way, I also have these in dark Indigo, both purchased last year. They kept selling out so keep trying !
There are lots of other styles too M&S have great choices in the denim section
…an old favourite a well worn and much loved over-sized jumper from & Other Stories.
