Primary Colours

As a black woman, I constantly get told to “wear more colour”. Being a lover of black, white, and grey, this idea did not come easily to me. A few weeks ago, the phrase “you should wear more colour” became more and more frequent to the point where I bought an item of clothing in the colour yellow  (a colour I had not worn since I was 13), just to get everyone to stop telling me to wear colour. So I bought it and…I loved it. I instantly saw that everyone was right. I saw that colour not only complimented my skin tone but made me feel good about myself too. It empowered me and quite literally brightened my day. Of course, I know that not all colours suit me but I thought I’d start with primary colours.

I want to encourage you to wear more colours because it really does brighten your day. I’m taking it back to the basics.
