STYLE SWAP TUESDAYS - ADDING COLOR TO YOUR WINTER WARDROBE

I am a girl who loves and lives for bright, cheery colors. No matter what the season, you will always find me clad in bright hues. Rare are those days when you will find me in black or gloomy colors. No offense to ladies who live for dark colors, but it's just me- a girl who loves her bright wardrobe.

Trust me folks, wearing multiple colors together is not as hard as some of you might think. I know wearing black is effortless but once you get used to that punch of color, you will love it. Just an open mind and your confidence is required. So, how can you add that daily dose of color to your winter wardrobe without feeling overwhelmed ? Keep reading.....

1) Colored accessories - if going bold at the first attempt is not your forte, then take baby steps. Try adding color through accessories. A pair of colorful earrings or a bright handbag, a colored scarf or even a sweep of bright eye-shadow will do the trick. You will have just that hint of color to make your everyday boring black pop.

2) Colored tights - colored tights is another effortless way to add  color and pattern to any winter outfit, plus it keeps you warm- added bonus. Wear a printed or a brightly-colored tights under your black dress/skirt and that is it, you've honed the art of adding color to your outfit. 

3) Colored shoes- nobody said 'your boots always need to be either black or brown aka boring ??' I am not advising you to wear a pink fuzzy pair of boots/booties, but a red leather pair or a subtly-printed one is always doable. I have worn a pair of red leather boots without looking jarring, check em out here. If not boots then there is always the option pf pairing your favorite pink heels for color with a pair of black sweater tights for that extra warmth, just as I am wearing- what say? 

4) Colored outer- this one got to be my favorite hack to adding color to my winter wardrobe. After bright colors, jackets and coats got to be my weakness. I have coats and jackets in pretty much all colors, cuts, styles and lengths. I would any day trade a black outer with an orange or bright blue one.   Colored knits and sweaters play up any boring winter outfit as well! 

5) Colored summer clothing - who says you can't wear your bright summer dresses in winter?  Now don't get too excited and pull out your strapless mini, well actually that might work- layer a turtleneck underneath the strapless dress and put on a pair of tights underneath.....voila! Wearing your summer dresses in winter is really easy, just opt for winter-friendly fabrics, which means cotton and linen are out of bounds. If your clothing sticks then just rub a sheet or two of fabric-softener on the inside of your apparel and problem solved. 

Which of the aforementioned hacks is you? How to you like to play up your winter wardrobe?
