Hey, guys. My wardrobe consists mostly of grays and blacks. This year, I want to add a little color to my wardrobe. Any tips how?

Also, I usually wear jeans, flats, and an interesting blouse to school. The combo has become safe but boring. I want to shake things up a bit while still adhering to the school’s dress code (no mini skirts and sleeveless shirts allowed). Any advice?

Here’s one of my favorite ways to spike color:
SHOES
for example…this outfit:

Doc Martens are kind of flats..
you can wear them with jeans, skirts, tights… a blouse..

another way is to wear bright colored tights with monotone pieces..
like, a black dress that goes slightly above the knee, black boots, maybe a jacket and a hat.. then bright red tights.,… or bright pink, blue, purple,….

EXPLORE girl..! :)

This sounds like my life haha

I usually work with shoes and scarves when I try to add color. I have found some amazing flats in different colors as well as heels, boots, etc. And scarves are great with anything. If you’re in a hot weather area, go with a light summer scarf! It’s a great pop of color.

I want to try to add more color in the future with tights and hats. Tights are a bit of a commitment, but when done well I think they look great (I hope to get a pair of maroon tights for this). And I never wear hats but I want to try. I do tend to go towards more neutral colored hats but I think that pink or blue could really add something too.

I love blacks and greys….if your not a bright colour kinda girl, I suggest some of the interesting darker colours. I have FAR too many blue items in my wardrobe and dark green is good, as (although not reaaally an adventurous colour) it can look almost black but be amazingly flattering to skin tones.

This is on the very conservative side, but it’s my approach…!

Using accessories to add color is a great idea. Scarves, bags, etc. all work well.

If you’re trying to become more colorful overall, I’d suggest using other colors as neutrals – navy, olive green, and tan can all look wonderful while still remaining neutral and versatile.
