The cold months tend to zap us of any inspiration to wear bold, beautiful, colorful pieces, and suddenly we find ourselves in head-to-toe black, brown, and navy that can't classify as anything other than "neutral." While those shades certainly have their place in our wardrobes, there is such as thing as too much of a good thing.
Unfortunately, if you don't feel like a million bucks, you will dress that way too. The reverse is also true. If you walk around in black all the time, eventually you'll start to feel black on the inside. While it might be okay for a short time, after a while it just becomes depressing. Clothes, in my opinion, are supposed to make you feel better about yourself!
Well, I'm here to help. Inspired by our own affinity for wearing far too many neutrals in the winter, here are some of my tips on how to inject color into your winter wardrobe this year.
Wear a brightly colored jacket. If there's one singular item you can add to your wardrobe this winter to jazz it up a little, it's a brightly colored jacket. Pick a solid one in your favorite hue, then you can wear it over anything you want for an instant dose of color.
Step out in a bright trouser. You can take a bolder impact by choosing a staple pant in a bright tone. Some ladies wear it well; but if you're confidence level isn't up, you'll probably feel embarrassed to wear colored pants. No worries, we have other options.
Picking a bright hue like orange or red is a great way to make an otherwise dull winter look stand out.
If colored shoes aren't your thing, try a bag instead. This is a fantastic option for those of us who prefer to stick to browns, blacks and other neutrals during the colder months; a pastel or primary colored bag will add a pop of color to your palette without overpowering your look.
