Colour of the Month - Mulberry
Welcome to our new colour of the month feature! Now that we are up to over 300 colours here at Kettlewell we know that it can be near-impossible to choose just one, so each month we're going to focus on our favourite colour of the moment, showing you how to know whether it works for you and how to style it with aplomb.
Our inaugural Colour of the Month is... drumroll.... Mulberry! Not only is February the month of hearts and flowers, with Valentine's day falling bang in the middle, but at this time of year, when winter feels like it will never take the hint and leave and spring feels just a little bit too far away, a vibrantly wholesome shot of a rich pink that doesn't feel too splashy for the time of year is just the thing to lift your spirits.
Can I wear it?
Mulberry is a distinctly cool toned colour, with a plummy blue undertone rather than a warm yellow one, which means it's going to look absolutely incredible on you if you have a cool skintone. Under a seasonal colour analysis system this equates to a Summer or a Winter palette. If your palette is warm toned - Spring or Autumn - then this emphatically cool colour definitely isn't for you, but panic not, we've got some gorgeous alternatives to suggest later on in this post.
