Just Another Saturday: A Pop Of Color

burberry nude color pop style guideWhile my blog feed has been flooded with shades of pink, red (and gray?) I hope you enjoy this “just another Saturday” post about regular old style. Whether you’re all hyped up for v-day or celebrating singles awareness day, I personally like to view it as any other day. I’ll just keep my commentary to myself on this one.

With that being said, I’m focusing today on adding a pop of color to your wardrobe during the cold neutral months. Nothing kicks up a drab outfit a notch more than an eye catching colored piece. There’s of course the easy route of adding a colored accessory to an all black outfit (lazy girls guide to chic, yeah?) but what about all the gray, nude, white and creams?

Tips: Adding a “pop” of color should mean that it’s a relatively small piece in proportion to the entirety of the outfit. For instance, a bright colored top with gray pants isn’t necessarily a “pop” of color (though it is a great touch so definitely  do try it) but a bold neon belt on an all gray dress is. A bright colored cardigan with black pants and a white shirt is a step in the right direction but  try doing a smaller piece like an electric blue shoe or a hot pink statement necklace to really draw the eye in. As a general rule (but by no means without exceptions) the bigger the piece is, the less captivating an effect. However, one example of an exception to that rule is a rich colored coat over neutrals. This is pretty much a must.

Here’s some inspiration to incorporating color into your minimalist style.

Tips: Try making your elegant nude dress a little edgier by adding some neon flare to it and getting some extra wear out of it. A striking necklace or belt really makes a huge difference in changing the style of the dress entirely.

Adding color to your wardrobe can be tricky if you’re living on a budget so having small interchangeable pieces is a really great way to spice up an all neutral palette. Try adding items like these to your wardrobe to start yourself off:

Most importantly always remember: it’s not what you wear, but how you wear it. Cliché, je sais, but true so just do you.
