Fall and winter bring neutrals galore, and, as chic as these shades are, they can be a little dull. A bright pop of color, just like the lilac purse sported by this week’s Fashionista, is the perfect way to brighten up your fall favorites.
Nine times out of 10, sporting a pop of color is very chic. But to eliminate that one chance that you end up looking like a holiday ornament, keep in mind these three rules. The first rule is to keep everything else simple; pair classics with a single piece in a bright color. This leads us to the second rule: create focus. By selecting a pair of tights or a sweater as your brightly colored piece, there is one single point of interest in your outfit, keeping everything clean and chic. Finally, start out small with an accessory, like this Fashionista did.
This Fashionista was spotted sporting an all-black look, with a structured jacket bought at Urban Outfitters, booties by Sam Edelman and a shirt by Polo Ralph Lauren. Her pop of color is created by her key accessory, a lilac purse by Marc Jacobs.
