Banish Blue Monday – Add Colour To Your Wardrobe

We are a few weeks into the New Year and apparently next Monday 21st is known as Blue Monday (the most depressing day of the year) due to the weather, overspending at Christmas and failure of our new year’s resolutions. Or as the mathematical geeks (one of which is my daughter!) might say: [W+(D-d)]xTQ/MxNA – where W is weather, D is debt, d monthly salary, T time since Christmas, Q time since failure of attempt to give something up, M low motivational level and NA the need to take action. There you go a maths lesson too 🙂

Seriously though, one of the best ways I know to brighten your mood is to add colour to your wardrobe, something I know a bit about! So let’s banish the blues – although I know that some of you will be quite happy to keep them – and add some yellow, orange, pink, red and if you read Monday’s post, green. Because those are the colours coming this season. As I am sure you know each season there are a set of Pantone Colours that designers use and that you should be able to find in the shops. There is also a Pantone Colour of the Year and this year I am doing a happy dance because it is my absolute favourite; Coral.

So let’s start a movement this Blue Monday, add colour to your wardrobe and wear one of the happy new season colours. You could tag me @lookingstylish on Instagram if you post a picture and use the #banishbluemonday so I can pop over and like your picture.

In case you wanted to treat yourself to something new to add colour to your wardrobe and help banish the blues, here are some pieces in the season’s colours.
