STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Hot Colors in the Cold

Style Advice of the Week

Post fall/winter fashion week has us all looking forward to the brighter spring time days that await us in the coming months. We’re all ready to bring color back into our lives when spring arrives. Just because it’s still winter doesn’t mean you have to be committed to a strictly dark and neutral colored uniform. This Fashionista shows us how to incorporate bright, cheerful colors on a freezing cold, snowy day.

She sports a bright red peacoat over black layers with red lips to match. The peacoat is a classic winter option, but what makes the color pop is the contrast of an electric yellow wool scarf. The scarf is unique in its sunny color as opposed to it’s warming function. Together, the two primary colors create a shocking color combination that is bold and attention grabbing in the best way possible.

Accessory wise, she smartly keeps it minimal with an oversized black tote that’s perfect for carrying to class, black gloves, black tights and black, closed-toed wedges. The black of all her accessories keep the peacoat and scarf in the spotlight and prevent the ensemble from appearing jarring or too busy.

If you’re feeling bold like this Fashionista, steal her style and stand out on the winter streets by combining brights. Mix and match bright peacoats with bold colored scarves and keep accessories monochromatic. If you’re not feeling the warm primary colors, try adding other bright, solid colors. Regardless, you’ll stand out from the crowd and feel cheery even on the gloomiest days.
