My Fear Colour : With the Tutu Factory

Everyone has favourite colours they love to wear. I love black, red and purple,  black is generally the basis for most of my outfits! But I have a total fear colour, that I am just so scared to wear... Blue.  I never wear blue! I worry about how it looks on me, I don't even look at anything that is blue, and never, ever wear it. In fact, I bought a pair of blue jeans just before Christmas, my first pair in about 12 years. I don't know why I get so anxious about how I look in blue, but I do.

So when I received an amazing package of goodies from Tutu Factory, I was honestly thrilled to see it had blue in it! I have been wanting to get a blue outfit for a while to blog about. One of my aims for 2016 is to push myself and break those fears!

Chop to Crop Top* - SimplyBe
Denim jacket - New Look (last year's summer wardrobe)
Royal blue tutu* - Tutu Factory
Leggings - New Look
Boots - Demonia
Flower crown* - Tutu Factory

I was so tempted to put my black pleather jacket with this, but that wouldn't have meant I was really pushing myself! Instead I teamed the tutu with a tied up vest top and a blue denim jacket. I'd never actually worn this jacket before because I've been collecting pins for it, but it worked as is for now! 


I really enjoyed the contrast of the royal blue with the black. I actually really ended up loving this outfit, so I am so glad I was able to challenge myself to wear a colour that usually makes me so uncomfortable. I think the blue kinda worked for me, and I love how full that tutu is. It was so windy when I took these photos but the lining of the tutu meant I didn't have to worry about flashing my pants. They have an elasticated waist which meant it was really comfy, and they will custom make any size or length tutu, as well as having a huge plus size range as standard in sizes up to a 32. I absolutely adore a good tutu, but the UK seems to be lacking in them, so to see an indy company making them in sizes up to a 32, and even doing a kids range, is so so cool.


So now I am really curious, because I can't be the only person with a colour they are too scared to wear! So I want to see you guys wear those colours that make you nervous, and share them with me. I was convinced I didn't suit blue, but I did, and I know you could rock those colours that you avoid too.

Big thanks to the Tutu Factory for challenging me without even realising it!

Much love,
Kitty xxxx

    Is there a colour I'm scared to wear? Not sure actually, I'll take a pop of anything. Brown maybe?

    1. aww thank you so much!! It's totally out of my comfort zone and I felt really cute :D Brown is a hard colour for me too, but I've introduced tan into my wardrobe and rusty colours, and love them, so brown is the next step! xx

  4. I'm absolutely dying to get a tutu, but I don't know if I could pull it off! I saw a gorgeous paste pink one not long ago which seemed perfect.

    You look fab in blue - I'm always nervous to wear red, so you're definitely not the only one with a colour fear.

    1. So I've just been and had a nosy on your blog, and oh my gosh you would rock red!! Your colourings are very similar to my Mum and she looks so bad ass in red. I loved that Tutu factory do basically every colour, length and style you can think of which is so neat. I'm glad I'm not the only one who fears a colour! x

  6. I don't like pastels but otherwise really bright colours. Yellow doesn't suit my skin tone. Orange I like but it always seems too bright or too dull and brown-ish. But red is my main fear colour. I like red but particularly in summer it scares me ever since I read that bees are attracted to the colour red and they are one of my biggest phobias.

    1. I hadn't heard of bees liking red before! I totally understand that. I do find yellow a tricky colour to wear, I adore how it looks on dark and olive skin, but less so on me. I love super bright colours though, especially contrasted with black, I bet you would rock that!

    1. Isn't it so strange how we feel about colour and wearing them? Challenge yourself, I am sure you will look awesome!

  9. I wear loads of blue in jeans but rarely any other items. I don't tend to wear red as I am quite pale and tend to find it washes away any colour. The blue really suits you though x
