Stepping out of your comfort zone

Every once in a while, we all must step out of our comfort zone to know what we are really made of. It might sound too Zen and philosophical but sometimes we all need to man up and grow a thick skin. It is truer in the world of fashion and style. I’ve never played safe in anything so why should I when it comes to style?

With that in mind, I prodded myself and brought this bright, blood red pair of trousers for a fun-theme party. While my eyes hovered around on many beautiful dresses, I thought it was time to channel my inner gaga and up the ante a bit.

Red has always been my Achilles’ Heel. It is bold, demands attention and requires a great dollop of confidence. A pair of red trousers would need all that………. only double the amount.

In a city, where individual style is not just respected but celebrated immensely, I felt I could easily pull-off the look. But as I went out of the door towards the night, I felt my bravado sinking. However, I decided to keep my head high and soldier on.

The result? The euphoria one feels after achieving the impossible.

Bring on the lady in Red.

Black Pumps: Clarks.

As Red is quite a bold colour, I decided to keep it as the main focus. I’ve softened the look with a grey T that has a Tiger face, bold yet not over-powering the Red. The Jacket and Scarf are just necessary when the outside temperature is a miserable zero degree Celsius.

Does Red fill you with dread or is it an easy-peasy colour? What is your biggest style night mare? Let me know in the comments section.
