In this cray biz called fashion, one of the biggest challenges is simplicity and being true to yourself.

When constant reinvention and consumerism is the game, it’s easy to forget yourself. That’s why, it’s important to sometimes stay away from all the accessories and gimmicks, in order to face yourself and your own beauty – we’re not saying you need to stay away from shopping, not wear makeup or not dress to impress. What we’re saying is to just keep it simple at times and accentuate what’s already working for you.

To quote the epic lyrics of the song ‘True Colors’ sung by style legend Cyndi Lauper: “True colors are beautiful, Like a rainbow”.

How good is that song by the way.

After all, the dress-up-play of fashion is just as much about iconography as self invention. So why not let our true colors show through once in a while and be a little more honest about what’s already great about us, and only us.

Natural features may not have expensive labels, but there is only one you. So when you think about, a look that shows your natural features is the most exclusive look there is – your individuality is more exclusive then any label out there.
