Spotted by Style Stalker, Mia Carr
Sunday afternoon at Palace Electric Cinemas in New Acton brought a pop of colour into my life, thanks to the very stylish Julie. Proof that all anyone needs to stand out from the crowd is a single statement piece.
Let's all be honest now - Canberrans have a habit of filling at least 70% of our wardrobes with black clothing (myself and lovely Julie are both undeniably guilty of this) – But let's face it, black is forever stylish, creates a beautiful silhouette and won’t show that shamefully embarrassing stain I dropped on myself at lunch (or is that just me?). Anyway, as the saying goes “Women who wear black lead colourful lives” so while I stand proud in my primarily head-to-toe black, I admit that sometimes I dare to want to wear a bold colour.
Julie proves the key to wearing bold colour is to pick your piece. A bright coat is a great Canberra style choice as, first of all, it’s practical. It can brighten up your day but can be removed for those in the office who might see you as too radical and, best of all, can work with everything you already have. The trick is to pick a colour that is on the same colour palette as the majority of your winter clothes or go really bold and pick something that is a sharp contrast.
I couldn’t help but have major coat-envy when leaving Julie. She was just so completely chic.
