When it comes to what’s in your wardrobe, a neutral, monochrome, and nude color palette is often an easy and versatile route to take. However, there’s no need to shy away from vibrant hues and pattern, in fact, a neutral palette provides the perfect backdrop for an array of color choices; you just have to know how to add a bright shade to your outfit.
Okay, so technically your makeup collection will not reside in your wardrobe; however, what you choose to put on your face is usually entwined with what you’ve chosen to wear that day. A bright nail, eye, or lip color can add an instant va-va-voom to any ensemble. Whether you pick a classic red or a lively pink shade, the hands, and face are excellent places to catch people’s eye with a pop of color. Get yourself to a cosmetics counter and try on some different shades, you can ask for advice from the beauty specialist, and they’ll inform you of what hues suit your skin tone the best. So, if it’s a dreary day outside, and you’ve got your comfy plain clothes on; pop on a red lip, or a metallic nail, and you’ll feel great in no time.
When it comes to accessorizing, your options are endless; making headwear, jewelry, bags, and shoes the perfect way to liven up your wardrobe by adding color. Finding colorful accessories that you love is often as much fun as wearing them. So, whether you’re hunting through vintage stores trying to find a yellow leather bag or sourcing blue gemstones in rings at places like Costco jewelry, enjoy the process, and your items will feel special each time you wear them. Layer your pieces up, and don’t be afraid to mix colors and patterns that you might think will clash; if your outfit is quite neutral, then a lively combination of accessories will show off your personality, fashion sense, and playful side. If you like something, whatever the color, be brave and wear it!
When the months get colder, and the days are shorter, it can be a bit of a dark and gloomy time; however, you get the chance to layer up your clothing and brighten your day with colorful outerwear. Whether you’re wrapping up in a cozy coat or jacket, it’s a chance to go against the norm and choose a bright hue that would usually be saved for the summer months. Plus; you’ll be easy to spot in a crowd, and your colorful attire will cheer up any grumpy passers-by. For some bright-colored jacket inspo; take a look on Pinterest.
If the thought of wearing red or yellow jacket trouble you, and you’re not quite ready for that level of colorful commitment; wooly accessories are another great route to take. Scarves and hats provide the perfect canvas to rock some serious color choices and patterns. Even if it’s just the bright green pom-pom on your hat that shows off your vibrant side; it’ll contrast and stand out from your monochrome clothing, and provide that all-important pop of color we’ve been talking about this whole time!
