Clothed In Confidence

Have you ever heard the saying ‘confidence is the best outfit, rock it and own it’?
It’s one of our favourites here at colour me beautiful because it is SO true. You really can wear ANY colour, ANY style, ANY accessory if you have CONFIDENCE.
Self-confidence can be difficult to ‘fake’ though. If we don’t feel it, it can be hard to pretend, and this can lead us to make ‘safe’ choices with our clothes and style.
We reach for the same colours as we’re unsure whether other shades may suit us, we..

Denim Details

DEEP – you look great in dark, rich colours so you can wear dark denim on it’s own or in contrast with another colour.
WARM – medium-depth colours work best on you so pop something one or..

Blazer v Bomber

Navigating Spring weather can sometimes be tricky here in the UK as it changes so often (sometimes within the course of a single day!)
It (usually) isn’t cold enough for a heavy coat but you still need an outer layer to keep the chill out until the temperatures really start to soar (we hope!)

Is It Time To Try A Trench?

If there’s one wardrobe item that is synonymous with Spring, it has to be the trench coat.
The trench coat dates back pre-World War 1, when it was designed as an alternative to the heavy greatcoat that Army officers wore. It was adapted to be worn in the trenches, hence where the trench coat got its name.
Since then it has evolved and developed as times and fashions have changed and it is still a mainstay of many a wardrobe across the world. But do you have one on your coat rail?
Not only is ..
