Maroon is not my favourite colour, which is a pity because it is a noble shade that can be blended to great affect with other neutral and primary colours.
It was the colour of my school uniform and I wore it, pleated and belted, for my six years in high school. I wore a maroon beret, maroon tunic and a maroon tie against the incongruous backdrop of a fawn blouse and cream tights.
I can say with confidence that I haven't worn maroon since I sat my final matriculation exam. Except this, which I love.
I think she warrants an exception.
What colour don't you wear?
