Fashion trends come and go, but colors are here to stay. I love everything about colors from fashion to my homes interior. In doing research I have found 5 Ways to help us add more color to our wardrobes. On your Mark... get Set... Go.
It's a style conundrum that creeps up without warning: You wake up one morning, walk to your closet, and realize that every outfit you wear is composed of the same three colors. To escape the endless forest of blue, black, grey and browns... but we will show you how to use them.
Take Advantage of Neutral Colors
If you're trying to build an outfit around your new teal sweater, it helps to know your neutrals. Items that feature neutral colors (black, white, grey, and brown) will go with just about anything, providing a solid foundation for more colorful apparel.
Blouses Are Perfect for Adding a Color Pop
Another easy way to expand your color palette is to lean on your roster of blouses. While more complex pieces may be hard to incorporate, a solid or pattern blouse is endlessly versatile, and provides some extra color without going overboard.
Find Items That Pair with Old Standbys
Once you've mastered the basics, it's time to level up. A more complex way to add extra color is to find a "bridge" item, which pairs a familiar color (blue) with one you're trying to add (red). This allows you to seamlessly add a piece to any go-to outfit.
Have Faith in the Accent Piece
If you're willing to go out on a limb, at least every once in a while, try adding an accent piece. Scarves, hats, vests, and socks are all likely contenders—just make sure you limit yourself to one accent color per outfit.
When All Else Fails, Accessorize
Your everyday style isn't limited to apparel. If you just can't find a colorful piece that matches the rest of your wardrobe, expand your search to accessories. A choker or necklace, accent laces, the right shoes, and/or colorful make-up to bring it all together all simple ways to switch things up without compromising your look.
