Everybody has those days.

You’ve snoozed your alarm three times.

Though you promised yourself you were only going to have that one glass last night, you regretfully recall stumbling in, armed with cheesy chips and sitting on the floor singing lullabies to your dog.

Using any ounce of energy you can possibly muster, you tear yourself away from the safe haven that is your bed and stumble in the direction of the shower. Someone else has got there first and what is worse is that they are singing U2’s Beautiful Day at the top of their lungs. Talk about selfish.

Your go-to jeans are in the wash, along with what seems like your entire wardrobe and after eternities of staring blankly into the depths of your cupboard you throw your arms up in the air and ask “what’s even the point?” Unacceptably close to believing it will do to fish something out of the dirty washing basket, you assume a questionable version of the downward dog pose and hope this day will go away.

It won’t. 

If, like me, you’ve had these days (and perhaps plenty of them), I’m going to lend some style advice:

Absolutely anything black (and a splash of neon for good measure). I used to wear a lot of black, from party dresses to workout gear but these days my motto is the more colour clashes the better.  Yet there is also something about wearing head to toe black that can have you feeling (and hopefully looking) effortlessly stylish, though on this particular morning you may feel anything but.
