Add a Dash of Autumn Tan

22 April 2015

Camel Coat

Ok people, apparently the colours tan, camel and brown are back in fashion for the next few seasons.

Let me talk about that for a moment.

In the 1970s, the colour brown was huge. It came back in fashion again in the early 2000s, and it was then I fell in love with the colour and embraced it until… um, half my wardrobe was brown?

I had clothes in tan, camel, coffee, caramel, mocha, cappuccino, and dark chocolate brown. So much dark brown!

Once I got over that phase, I kept a few camel and tan coloured items, but I got rid of everything else.

I really don’t like brown now. I associate it with an older generation and my naive following of a fashion trend. I can’t shake off the feeling. Is it just me?

So I won’t be sporting any brown this season. In fact, I’m going to colour my hair back to black.

I like tan and camel though!

I have kept a camel coloured coat, a tan leather jacket, a tan coloured parka, a shirt, a dress, camel coloured pants and a pencil skirt.

So it’ll be nice to drag them out of storage and add a hint of colour to my daily monochrome palette.
