 I think it's always important to push yourself outside of your comfort zone, both sartorially and in life generally (because
apparently at the wise old age of 22, I feel ancient enough to give such sage and learned advice- you can choose to not listen
but that will be at your own detriment). I joke , of course- about the ancient part not the comfort bubble part. For the 
longest time, I was always scared to wear bright colours and to be honest, it's a fear that hasn't truly left me. I've long come
to terms with the fact that I will never be as comfortable in a bright red or a bright yellow as I will be in my greys, 
whites and blacks. If I want colour in my outfit, it's usually done through accessories or shades that aren't as bright
as my top here. But once in a while, it's nice to challenge that preconceived notion, even if its self-imposed; and when
I do, I always match it with clothes that I'm comfortable in i.e. these Rag & Bone leather shorts.
