We all know the colours we like, but there are so many times when I look back of photos and think how washed out I look in certain outfits. A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to meet stylist Alex Longmore at the Dove Invisible Dry event who talked me through which colours actually suit me.
As the event was all about colour, I had donned my sunshine yellow coat and cobalt blue silk top (Embroidered Front T-Shirt with Linen £22.50 M&S pictured) to demonstrate my wiliness to embrace brights. Funnily enough, Alex told me that the intense blue I was wearing was my perfect colour, and that jewel shades are the most flattering on my hair and skin colour. This seemed like the perfect excuse to hit the shops to add a few more pieces of my now signature shade to my wardrobe. So I treated myself to the Phase Eight Blue Elissa Silk Maxi Skirt £85 and Coast Fey Printed Top £29 in the sale, which although is mainly black has the cobalt blue orchids which is a nod to the blue - I can't be constantly in head to toe. As cobalt blue looks so fab with gold, I've teamed the maxi skinny with these gorgeous Diamante Chain Mail Sandals (M&S £19.50).
What would be disastrous is if I got deodorant marks on my new threads, as they would stand out a mile, but luckily Dove's Invisible deodorant (£3.75 Boots) has been tested on 100 colours and doesn't leave marks, phew.
