STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Brighten Up With A Pop Of Color

Style Advice of the Week

When one thinks of a winter palette, it’s mostly full of dull colors such as gray, black, brown and blue. Designers tend to stray away from brighter colors when they launch their lines for fall and winter. It’s important to liven up any outfit and a pop of color can make any outfit stand out, especially in the dead winter months.

This Fashionista is sporting a lime green scarf in contrast to her outfit, which contains mostly basic colors. Without the scarf one wouldn’t be drawn to look twice at this outfit, but the difference in color adds a more noticeable aspect to the overall look. A pop of color is used best when it is a minor detail in comparison to the outfit because it draws more attention to the specific piece. Since the color of choice for the scarf was lime green, this Fashionista is not overwhelming to look at since she has used the right amount of color. For the winter months, an accessory like a hat or scarf is perfect for brightening up any clothing.

To get this look, check out any local store that carries scarves and hats such as Urban Outfitters, Nordstrom and Forever 21. Each store has a great selection of scarves ranging from colors like cherry red to neon yellow to ombre blue that can spice up any outfit. An accessory like a scarf is a great addition to any closet and useful not only during the winter months, but for the spring and summer as well.
