There is a difference between a shapely bottom and a big bum. Back in the day, women used to ask "Does my bum look big in this?" If it did, they would scream and change outfit. Fast forward years later, when the same question is asked, we want the person being asked to respond, "Yes it does, and it looks fabulous darling."
I rock a pair of Nike Air Max, people tell me it's good I'm going to the gym. I wear a quilted skirt, people ask why I'm wearing half a sleeping bag. I buy a vintage jacket and people sing 'Climb Every Mountain' because apparently I look like I'm wearing the Sound of Music curtain outfit (the most offensive thing there being the weak song choice, of course).
In that moment, I realized I have two wardrobes: the one that fits me now. And the one that will hopefully fit again in a few weeks / months. Maybe you have the same. Funny, I'm not remotely a follower of fashion, and am thus not remotely interested in whether The Second Wardrobe as I will from now on call it, will drift out of fashion in the months (or years) that it is (not literally) mothballed.
The following collections - some for women, some for men, some for both - are extreme examples of how you can introduce a bit of colour into your outfits this season. If you absolutely will not be parted from your darker styles, why not try wearing them with a pair of amazing, colourful kicks like these Mary Katrantzou x adidas Originals designs?
