I love those colours you can't quite place- from retailers they have obscure and descriptive names like 'dusty clay' and 'bronzed twig' (my favorite jackie colour ever...) and these tights are that indescribable shade of off-brown that my sister (another fan of the colour) charitably calls 'vindaloo.' I'm happiest in these colours actually- I may be constantly seduced by a bright kelly green, but I still don't know how to wear it. Whereas any three-part combination of ochre, umber, vindaloo, rust, dusty clay or khaki is an instant winner. Maybe a pop of contrasting colour doesn't hurt either...
What's your favourite under-appreciated muted colour? Do you have big seasonal shifts? Or, like me, does your colour analysis just shift with the seasons as well, so that same 'mustard' skirt becomes a 'gold,' 'honey' or just plain 'yellow' as the season dictates?
Speaking of kelly green, I just bought a pair of green tights at Joe Fresh. What was I thinking? I mean, the last time I left the house in the Beda dress I was asked if it was already St. Patrick's day! Maybe it's just a personal challenge... so I promise, coming up this week- wearing green tights without looking like a beanstalk costume, wearing the Tulipa skirt with boots (for fun and fall satisfaction), and I hope to debut a couple of holy grail items that have come into my posession recently...(think cityscape...!)
