The biggest shift in my personal style over the past 12 months has been the addition of lighter neutrals to my wardrobe. The idea of lightening my overall colour palette kicked into gear for me when I added this light coloured coat from The Curated to my wardrobe at the beginning of 2020. I typically rely on darker hues, particularly during the cooler months, so it’s been refreshing to mix things up with a lighter colour palette.

Everlane knit* (sz XS), Scanlan Theodore skirt (sz S) (sold out, similar here), Sarah Flint pumps* (use SARAHFLINT-BAWHATVEEWORE for $50USD off), Senreve bag* (use WHATVEEWORE for $50USD off)

And while there may be some risks with wearing lighter colours (ie. my love of slurpy tomato-y pastas, my toddler’s grubby fingers), I haven’t had any issues to date (*knocks wood*). It’s a welcome change from the dark hues I’ve been so used to gravitating towards and works as an instant mood lifter.

I’ve just shared a reel sharing some light-coloured neutral outfit inspiration for work. There’s a lot of knitwear that I rely on for days that I’m in the office (subtemperate aircon setting anyone?) as I find it strikes the right balance between comfort and polish while I ease myself back to the routine of spending business hours from the office.

Here are the pieces that featured in my latest reel:
