For the longest time, black has been my safe colour, which then over time became my go-to-colour; until one day I realised the amount of black clothes that I have amassed through the years; plus, every black dress started looking almost the same which was a really depressing thought.

Since I was determined not to let one lone colour rule my wardrobe, I started hunting for more interesting colour options, and the task was much easier than I thought; when it comes to the gorgeous sun-kissed complexion that most Indian women are blessed with, there are a myriad of other colours that we can choose from. From warm oranges, muted reds to electric blues, here are all the colours that deserve a spot in your closet STAT.
