Bold Stripes and Bright Colours in Winter

Boden Ottoman Dress & Bold Colours | Winter Style | Fake Fabulous

Bold stripes are quite a statement on their own but why stop there?
Especially on a dull Winter's day.

Today I'm wearing my black and white striped dress with plenty of layers... and a splash of colour!

{See this striped dress worn with flat shoes.....HERE and stripes with lots of shoes HERE}

When the days are short, and the light is cold and grey, it's easy to slip into frumpy and dull clothes.
When the days are dark don't disappear into equally dark clothing.
Wear something bold and bring your own light with you.
I guarentee you'll feel more positive and ready to take on your day, whatever it holds!
