Feel Good Chocolate with Zero Calories!

Bet that got your attention! Sorry if you were thinking of your favourite confectionery but this time I am talking the colour chocolate. It’s been my choice of key neutral in my wardrobe for some time but last Autumn it was in short supply. This season however, I am thrilled that it’s back. And I’ve been reminded how versatile it can be as a base colour for a capsule wardrobe.

Because – it works so well with so many other neutrals and accent colours. Here are just a few examples using some of this season’s trend colours:
