DRESS DOWN FRIDAYS : COLOUR BLOCK

Hope you’ve all had a great week despite the crazy weather we’ve been experiencing in Nairobi of late. One minute it’s hot and the very next second, sweeps of rain come brushing across the city! For me, it’s been a serious game of hit n’ miss as far as dressing is concerned. Lol!

Anyhu, what better way to compete with today’s shine (let’s see how long it lasts!), than with a mood enhancing colour block?

There’s tons of colour combinations I simply can’t get enough of, but there’s quite something about a  tangerine and cobalt blue collabo that always hits a sweet spot for me. When it comes to dressing down, I often lean towards a few tried and true tips and tricks 😉

1. Bright colours. What can I say? It’s hard not to smile when wearing a few of your favourite hues 🙂

2. Statement-making accessories to add a little pizzazz to the outfit story.

3. A coat is always the way to go to deal your outfit some much welcome structure, for an overall look that’s polished and well put together. In my opinion, there’s something about a well tailored blazer thrown over your shoulders as a cape that makes an entire ensemble look way more elegant and expensive than it really is. It’s also a perfect trick for effortlessly rocking an oversized coat like the blue number featured here today, without looking like you’re drowning in fabric. So for all you curious cats who’ve frequently asked “why I don’t wear my coats“, the cat’s out of the bag 😛

    I just love how you’re not afraid of playing with color. Really cool outfit… wouldn’t think of mixing blue and orange with plum.
