In a world where monochromatic style is rampant, daring to wear color can feel risky. Neutrals are everywhere, and it’s almost jarring to see someone in a chartreuse dress or purple pumps. You want to look put together and effortless, and maybe it’s been awhile since you’ve had any color in your wardrobe. Maybe you’re even afraid you’ll look garish or clown-like. Well, not to worry! This Fashionista has the perfect colorful look for you to try. It’s comfortable and chic, and it uses color in a more modern and sophisticated fashion.
First things first: wearing a pop of color is a great way to brighten your look and make you feel more awake and alive. Just because you’re tired doesn’t mean you need to look like it. Her yellow top is fresh and flowy—wearing a color close to your face does wonders to brighten your skin. Just make sure to choose a color that flatters your skin tone. If yellow isn’t your color, maybe try a bright blue or fuchsia! Whatever speaks to you and reflects your personal style is perfect. Her top is great because it has a nice ruffle detail, and the tie at the top adds visual interest without any extra fuss.
Furthermore, her pants continue the theme of spicing up your wardrobe with some color. I know black is trendy right now and speaks to many of our souls (especially after a long night out), but don’t be afraid of color! When used properly, the right shade can truly enhance your appearance and really pull your outfit together. Also, the zipper details on her pants keep this look functional, and it adds a fun detail.
Now, when it comes to your shoes… I know you may think throwing on wedges can be a lot to ask for, but bear with me. I’m not advocating for stilettos on a daily basis (unless that’s your thing, then go for it). Comfortable wedges that aren’t too high can be just as effortless and comfortable as a pair of sandals. I like to find a pair that’s more of a platform than an incline to really make them easy to walk around in.
Finally, top off your outfit with some jewelry. It takes no time or effort to stack on some bracelets and throw on a long necklace, but it really completes your look and makes it look purposeful. Furthermore, a nice watch is always a good idea. For the final touch, simple gold hoop earrings are beautiful. They aren’t too showy, but they’re a nice change from the studs you wear on the daily. With these final finishing touches, you will be on your way to brunch or post-work drinks in style, and all of your friends will be begging to borrow your colorful additions to your wardrobe!
