For me personally, as the days get colder, my clothing choices become darker. I don’t know what it is about winter, but I bring out a lot of black, brown and maroons. While spotting this week’s Fashionista with her bright colored accents, I was reminded that a little bit of color can go a long way. Adding color to a dark colored outfit can boost your mood, as well as make you look and feel enthusiastic and awake.
This week’s Fashionista wore an all black and white outfit but made her outfit pop by adding her bright colored shoes and necklace. I like the way she styled her bright oxfords because it made the shoes the focal point of her outfit. With a simple color palette on top, the pop of color from her necklace and shoes really stood out. Want to incorporate a pop of color in your winter outfits? I found three easy ways to wake up your basics.
A necklace is an easy way to add color to an outfit. Winter is a great time to show off a fancy, bedazzled necklace. A bright colored necklace can be flattering and adds a nice light to your décolletage and face. Wear this necklace with a simple black sweater, dark skinny jeans and a tall pair of black boots for a simple look. Wearing the darker colors will show off the fab necklace.
Come on, who really wants to cover up their outfit while they walk to class? While living in a cold area, putting on a heavy winter coat can become annoying. Change up your coat and keep it exciting by adding different scarves. A thick, bright colored infinity scarf is a perfect way to stay warm and add color to our everyday cold weather coats.
Last but certainly not least, a bright colored shoe is a great way to spice up an outfit. A colored bootie can be worn with many different outfits. Skinny jeans, leggings or tights will all work with this style of boot. My favorite way to wear this boot is with a thick black legging and long chiffon blouse.
No matter how you choose to incorporate color into your outfit, you will brighten up your day with an exciting pop of color.
