If you’ve been scared to be bold or mix things up, this Fashionista offers some seriously rad inspiration. Even if it’s dark and dreary outside, shine bright with varying colors and textures. Start your look with some major confidence and dive in.

The fall/winter 2014 collections not only featured faux fur coats to deal with the polar vortex, but also bright colors in jewel tones and pastels. Take this trend to the streets by pairing basics like this Fashionista’s ripped jeans and marsala top with bold accessories. Switch out your beloved puffer coat for a faux fur coat available in a myriad of shades to suit your look. Keeping the coat to a neutral color allows for pops of color that don’t feel overwhelming. Finish off your basics with a pair of leopard slip-ons that will get the most use in your outfits when styled as a neutral.

For the pops of color, you can choose small details like a neon orange clutch or even some color in your hair. If dying your hair like this Fashionista isn’t an option, go for clip-in extensions that offer you color for as long as you desire. Finish off with statement accessories like this Fashionista’s earrings or even a chain necklace. As long as you match your non-colorful accessories to the color palette of your outfit, you’ll be a knockout.
