A common question for those who have a monochrome wardrobe or wear a lot of black. I used to answer with 'black is a colour' or 'my scarf has colour in it', but recently I just don't find myself looking for excuses as to why I don't wear a lot of colour. It's just my style and it's what I like.
It has taken me, well, all my life to find something that I feel a 100% comfortable with. Okay, 80%, let's not get cocky. And I do like colour, don't get me wrong. I loove colour, on other people. I admire people who have colourful wardrobes and always look stylish as f*ck. I'm not like that, I need to be able to pick up 2 items from my closet and have them work together.
So, after 3 years of morning stress I threw out practically my entire closet. I only kept the things I wear regularly, which were black jeans, black shirts and tops and jumpers... Needless to say, I was left with nothing. So I had to buy some new things, mostly layering items so I can use them in the Summer and Winter (because cheapskate, right here). But I did expand my colour palette; I now own black, white, grey and khaki items and everything matches. It's a dream come true for the anxious, indecisive souls...
I can now proudly say that I have a capsule wardrobe; everything matches, I can get dressed in 5 minutes and I can easily go from day to night with the addition of a little bit of sparkle or a blazer.
