Instagram provides endless outfit inspiration for our Deputy Digital Editor — here’s what’s in her Saved Folder this week
Grey days = grey outfits. Granted, we have had a glimpse of spring weather this week but it looks set to return to its usual dreariness this weekend, and with my newsfeed being equally grey these days, my eye returns again and again to muted palettes for outfits.
But grey doesn’t have to mean boring — a pop of colour here and there can transform an understated outfit to one of instant style. Orange sunglasses, red lipstick, a printed headscarf or simple gold jewellery are all very simple accompaniments, and yet are the easiest and most sustainable way to transform an outfit. That’s why I’ll be emulating them all this weekend.
