Although more often than not you can find me wearing some combination of chambray, stripes, white, grey and when in doubt black on black, sometimes I get the urge to leave my house looking like a popsicle with feet. Ya feel me?…. Lucky for me, J.Crew has created the answer to my popsicle prayers in the form of this bright pink, floor length, high waisted number.
Sometimes a healthy dose of color is all you need to lift those spirits back up from being dragged down with the sweat that is almost definitely going to be playing a part in your humid summer week. And we can’t forget the importance of taking the chance to step outside of our color comfort zones and just Go For It, because even head to toe neutrals sometimes need a well deserved break.
So I suggest…no, I urge you to shake things up when digging through your black based closet saturated with neutrals amidst the very rare but very necessary punch of color, and opt for the color this time. It is after all the first real heat wave of summer. So put down the grey t-shirt, put the beloved black denim away, and give your punchy pieces their day in the sun. Let’s join forces and parade the streets in hues requiring sunglasses to be worn both in and outdoors. Who’s with me!?
