Melancholia: Dictionary meaning; gloomy forebodings.
Ive aptly named this post Melancholia as just because we (Southern Hemisphere) are in summer doesn't mean we have to wear bright summery colours. As seen by many designers such as Erdem, Comme Des Garçons and Louis Vuitton all opting for a dark, edgier, moody tones on the runway.
This suits me to a tee...surprise, surprise! I often see and hear so many people upgrading their wardrobes just because summer has hit and buying lots and lots of colourful outfits to go with that summery vibe, I'm not saying colourful is not fashionable and you shouldn't wear it, I'm just saying try something a bit different and opt for a darker edge this summer. It allows you to keep some of your winter staples and wear them throughout summer but with a cropped tee or singlet, allowing you to re use, recycle and still stay fashion forward.
