Do you feel like your wardrobe is very monotone? I tend to stick to neutrals with a few colorful shirts mixed in. I’m always a little nervous to venture outside my normal color selection. But sometimes all that neutral clothing can seem boring. If you’re not ready to buy a rainbow-colored wardrobe, start adding color in little, safe ways.
You don’t have to do all-over color to make it noticeable. A bright necklace, earrings, watch or bracelet can add a pop of color to your outfit. In fact, the jewelry might be more noticeable when it is worn with neutral clothes. Look for jewelry in bold colors that will go with the main colors in your closet. Some colors of jewelry go well with many different clothing colors. For example, red jewelry could go with white, black, navy or aquamarine clothes.
You can also use other colorful accessories to spruce up your outfits. Try a colorful belt or scarf to bring a little attention to your outfit.
They may be way down by the ground, but your shoes are another area to consider when trying to add color. You can find so many fun pairs of shoes in bright colors and patterns. Don’t be afraid of a little color on your footwear. Slip on chartreuse ballet flats with a navy outfit, for example.
If you don’t want your main clothing to draw attention, let just a little bright color peep through. A brightly colored camisole is an easy way to add some color to the clothing without feeling overwhelmed. Another option is to wear a bright t-shirt under a blazer. You get some color without drawing too much attention to yourself.
Jump Right In
Don’t want to take it slowly when adding color to your wardrobe? Jump right in with brightly colored clothing. It doesn’t have to be a vivid top. You’ll find shorts, long pants and skirts in bright hues. Try mixing and matching. You can pair one of your neutral shirts with a pair of coral pants, for example.
