I used to avoid neutral colours and opt for brights to boost my mood and my confidence. As I’ve grown older I’ve started to see that there is inherent confidence in a pulled-together neutral outfit. I use statement jewellery to vary the outfits each time. I still wear my vibrant, bright colours in the office, but every now and then I give my colleagues a break from wearing sunglasses indoors and choose a more neutral palette. As Anna Dello Russo says “If you’re not that important, you cannot be wearing sunglasses inside”. Now they’ve no excuse.
