Start to brighten up your style for the winter. Since when are you only allowed to wear brighter colors in the spring and summer seasons? Typically these aren’t common colors seen in your winter wardrobe, which mostly consists of neutrals and darker shades. Personally, nothing is better than brightening up your dreary winter wardrobe with a radiant color. Adding bright pops of a summery color to your outfit can completely transform your look.

When I first spotted this Fashionista, I saw her brilliant hot-pink lining of her vest from a mile away. This Vineyard Vines vest is perfect for the winter season. The traditional preppy color pairing of dark navy and radiant hot pink, allows you to add a brighter color to your outfit without it being too overpowering for the winter. A staple in everyone’s wardrobe should be a puffer vest. I have a slight addiction, owning about five. They always add a perfect layer to your outfit and are super warm for the colder seasons.

This Fashionista continues to style her outfit effortlessly by layering a navy gingham button-down under her vest. By wearing navy that matches the majority her vest, she is really allowing the pink lining to shine. To finish off her outfit she wears black leggings to be confortable in class. As well for shoes, perfect Coach rain boots to keep her feet warm and dry in this snowy weather.

Adding a little bright pops of color to your winter wardrobe can really give life too your favorite pieces. This leaves you looking cute and fun when the weather says otherwise.
