Anyone who knows me knows my wardrobe primarily consists of one color: black. Black tanks, black tees, black dresses and black sweaters accompanied by a taste of charcoal, a little bit of gray and a splash of white. While I’ve grown to be quite comfortable in my minimalist-inspired sense of style, there’s something to be said about incorporating a pop of color in to a monotone outfit, and this week’s Fashionista does it flawlessly.

This trendy gray T-shirt dress from Urban Outfitters is the perfect go-to outfit for a hot summer day in the Pacific Northwest. Matching it with a bright colored necklace from Francesca’s boutique really brings out the simplicity of this cute and comfy piece through the vibrant shades of the blue, green and yellow. The addition of these colorful hues creates a bold and energetic feel to the outfit that exudes upbeat summer vibes.

To further play with this added component of color, this Fashionista is rockin’ some “Pink” Bobbi Brown lipstick that works cohesively with the pops of color in the necklace. She is also featured wearing a gold Alex and Ani bangle that gives a polished, clean-cut feel to the outfit as a whole.

While her approach to styling her outfit was simple, it is achieved effectively through the use of a few classic accessories and a pop of color that emphasized the details that work to complete the outfit.

How To: Be sure to select accessories that work to complement the colors of your outfit. When wearing black, gray, white, etc. it’s great to use colorful jewelry to complete the look. If you’re wearing a colored dress or a bright T-shirt consider wearing gold or silver jewelry.
