Over the years, my style has changed dramatically. I’ve gone from wearing bright colors to neutrals, all white to bold colors, and currently into black-white-gray. Believe it or not, black and gray are not my favorite colors. However, these colors are the easiest to style (for some people). A while ago I did a post about purging out certain items in my closet. Since then, I’ve managed to maintain this adjustment. I won’t say that my style won’t change again, but for now, here’s why I’m into black, white, and gray:
CONVENIENCE: As I get older, I find myself making less of a fuss about my attire. I’m not saying I don’t care about what I wear; I just don’t stress about it. I have other things to tackle. Although fashion will always be a passion of mine, it’s not the center of my world (sorry fashionistas). My closet now consists of on-the-go, still-look-chic, ready-to-wear garments.
CLASSIC PIECES: When I make purchases, I think about the garment’s longevity. Is it appropriate for me now and later? Is it timeless or trendy? Is it versatile? Black, white, and gray are colors that minimize the headache of matching garments.
DRESS FOR YOURSELF: If people need you to wear bright colors to “brighten” THEIR day, then maybe these individuals need to reevaluate THEIR lives. I don’t dress for anyone else but ME. If I’m not exposing myself or wearing clothing with offensive writing, what difference does it make if I want to wear the colors of MY choice? There is so much going on in this world that warrants our attention. I don’t know about you, but poverty, violence, illnesses, and other tragedies trump my style any day.
What you wear should make you feel comfortable, regardless of unsolicited opinions. Your style is a reflection of your true self, and if others have a problem with that, well they can (fill in the blank). Ha!
I want to thank you for stopping by, and I truly appreciate you making NRJS a part of your day. See you next post!
