If you’re the type of person who thinks wearing all black is the only way to look uniform.. I am talking to you, but mostly directing this to myself. I live in monochromatic looks all year round. Whether it’s wearing all white, all black, or pulling out a Justin and Britney full denim look, circa 2001 (NEVER FORGET). Why does the thought of wearing actual color, bring fear into my heart? If you’re a 90’s kid like me, you were raised with Lisa Frank binders, Barbie pink, and Mr. Sketch rainbow scented markers. So now as adults, are we opting for muted and natural tones as a go to look? Could it be that we are still basking in Yeezy seasons 1-5? Or maybe we’ve been trained to not wear color?
My dear kindred neutral clothes wearing spirits, It’s time for a change. Life is to short too dress like we’re Lydia Deetz from Beetlejuice everyday. The world is changing and our closets need to change as well. I’m still going to dress in monochromatic looks, however I’m going to try and make an effort to make these looks colorful. Millenials have their own shade of pink and it’s time to embrace that.
I’m challenging all of our Freestyle readers to add some color into your closets. Whether it’s a statement shoe, a handbag, or a full look, don’t be afraid. So readers, wish me luck with my new colorful endevours and when you get a chance, show us your full monochrome Freestyle looks. Don’t forget to tag us in your #freestylefind!
