Fashion went all a bit beige and dull this winter. Perhaps it was reflecting the still somewhat gloomy mood of the world, but all I could think of when I laid eyes of Phoebe Philo's AW10 collection for Celine was "oh no, not again".
Wearing shades of beige and camel always feels chic at the time, but whenever I look back at photos of the year 2000 (when I recall it was last in fashion) I can't stand the sight of my cord jeans and roll-neck jumper, both in deep camel hues.
I made a conscious decision this winter to only buy accessories in the shade, as I already had this Zara coat in my wardrobe as a staple piece from 2009. On that note, I find one of the easiest ways to wear a new season colour is to wear it on your nails! I'm wearing Barry M in Mushroom which great quality and always under £3.
Word on the street (i.e Twitter) is that everyone can't wait for a pop of colour this coming Spring. The good news is that stores are getting their SS11 drops in early and I can't wait to get my hands on some colour - give me shades of mint green, cobalt blue, buttercup yellow, bright orange, peach and watermelon any day!
