Colour Musings





This particular outfit is having a resurgence from the drafts (Read: long hair). The neon palette has stayed around stylishly for a long while now and is surely befriending us this Fall. Collections like those of Tanya Taylor and Victoria Beckham have incorporated neons by complimenting it with the classic plaids and checks. A streak of neon among the winter darks' and monotones is always enough (and safely enough) to make a statement.
Currently, with the wedding season in full swing and most importantly my bridesmaid duties in force, I have had a lot of encounters with fuchsia pink in Indian wear. It is the hue you cannot help but fall in love with over and over again. Its a shade that complements all skin tones and tends to reflect that rose blush glow on you. Treat it with a neutral or contrast it with another bold colour, fuchsia is surely a winner.
If you have been a regular reader of the blog, you must be aware of my indispensable love for skirts. Having put together a contrast here, I matched the solid fuchsia with this printed, fuller midi-skirt. The midi skirt may seem more 1950s than 2013, but has taken the runways and street by storm (love this one). If a mini skirt gives you shudders and maxis seems overwhelming, then midi is the length to be. I always feel that the choice of colour makes styling very easy. Colours like fuchsia, royal blue, emerald green and red suggest minimal accessories. Hence, for this outfit I accessorized with these chandelier statement earnings. To add a different dimension I wore my pair of metallic silver heels (much like here) keeping up the power of colour!
