January is, without doubt, the most depressing month of the year. It’s cold, it’s wet, you’re poor and on a massive Christmas comedown. However, your wardrobe doesn’t have to be quite so sad. Wearing colour actively changes your mood and can lift spirits of those around you. So inject some colour and print into your winter wardrobe to beat the January blues.
Make like the Sex And The City Girls and offset bright colours and exciting prints against the harsh, miserable city background. You’ll be sure to stand out and brighten, not only your day, but those around you too.
January blues are banished
Follow in the footsteps of these designers and banish the grey and burn the black. Dries Van Noten takes a walk on the wild side with all-over leopard print. If that’s too saucy for you try block colours as shown by J.W Anderson and Moschino. Perhaps, you’d like something a little more subtle, Erdem’s shimmering florals will see your winter blossom and the January blues lifted.
How To Inject Colour Into Your January Wardrobe?
It may be chilly outside but these coats will leave you walking on sunshine. Burberry’s floral trench (£1595) is wonderfully elegant and feminine and will instantly have you dreaming of spring. You can beat those pesky showers with this rubber duck yellow raincoat from Stutterheim (£185), make like the late Debbie Reynolds and sing in the rain. For a cooler twist take Pinko’s graphic print bomber (£250) to switch up the black, boring leather. Add a touch of glamour with this emerald green Topshop boyfriend coat (£79), pair with jeans for an off-duty chic look.
New shoes are a guaranteed way of making you feel happier, plus these beauties will see you through winter and tred all over those January blues:
If you’re afraid of colour this is the perfect way of injecting it in small doses. Once these are on your feet you’ll be dancing through the storm. Take Kurt Geiger’s patterned block heel bootie (£110) or Manolo Blahnik fun and frivolous fur trimmed Remolas (£875). How about standing out in these intricate Irregular Choice floral ankle boots (£119)? Patent boots will always be sexy and PVC is having a moment at the minute, so, invest in these LK Bennet beauties (£110).
