In every Fashionisto’s closet there are a few basic pieces that can be combined to create different outfits. Pairing your favorite pair of jeans with a basic V-neck shirt is a classic look that will never go out of style. But, how many times can you wear jeans and a T-shirt before your wardrobe becomes predictable and generic? Accessories are a great way to enhance the visual interest of a simple outfit as well as providing a canvas for a pop of vibrant color.
This Fashionisto chose bright red as his pop of color. On his feet, he wears a pair of Vans and styles them by cuffing his jeans so that the subtle print on his socks is visible. The suspenders he wears are a daring choice of accessory, but can be pulled of by anyone with enough confidence. The key to this trend is bold and consistent color choice. Almost any color you choose will add interest to your outfit. But, be sure that all of your accessories are the same hue. Accessories that vary in color may make your look seem like a mismatched mess as opposed to a confident style statement.
Hint: If rocking a bold pair of suspenders isn’t your style, try adding color with a couple other simple accessories. A leather belt from American Apparel or a cool snap back from OBEY in a bright hue will both add color and personality to your wardrobe staples. By following these simple guidelines, you’ll never have to be afraid of bold color choice again!
