Style Advice of the Week

During the cold and short days of fall, I’m all about keeping my look bright and fresh with a simple pop of color in my outfit. Whether it’s a bold chartreuse handbag or a bright beanie, that one simple touch of color can elevate your look to the next level. Want to know the best news of all? Adding a pop of color is super easy! Just use this Fashionista as your guide.

It was impossible to miss this Fashionista walking around campus in her bold pair of kicks. These bright red sneaker wedges provide such fun contrast against an otherwise fairly muted color palette. While you certainly don’t always have to match your pop of color to some color in your outfit, this Fashionista’s shoes complement the red stripes in her chic plaid coat.

I love how this Fashionista plays with textures and prints to complete her look. The boxy structure of her wool coat is contrasted with a fun fur hood and fur detailed sweater underneath. She mixes prints by pairing her plaid coat with coated leggings with a subtle floral print.

To add a hint of red to your look like this Fashionista, keep the rest of your outfit somewhat minimal. As this Fashionista demonstrates, colors and prints are chic, but be sure not to let it overpower the final “pop.” Try pairing a black circle skirt and leopard print blouse with tights and a pair of killer red ankle boots. Or, for a more casual look, opt for a cheeky graphic tee, jeans and a great pair of red Nike sneakers.

Just because summer has ended doesn’t mean we have to surrender our love for bright colors. As this Fashionista shows us, a pop of red in the winter is sure to make a chic statement.
