When building your wardrobe, it can often be easy to collect rich, deep colors and flattering black pieces that are classically chic. These shades and hues flatter most anyone, but over time, it can be easy to find yourself in front of a closet that lacks bright colors, fun prints and splashes of vibrant hues. Summer is here which means it’s the perfect time to start adding some color to your collection. Whether your closet has too much black or too many nude tones and neutrals, everyone can do with a little joyful jolt of color! Here are some ways to defibrillate that bland wardrobe with some vibrant tones:
Add Colorful Prints
You don’t have to do a complete overhaul and just start buying entire neon colored dresses or fire engine red tops. You can begin your color journey with some interesting prints. Abstract watercolor, lavalamp or multi-colored swirly patterns and prints are super in at the moment. Tie dye is also currently trending. Choose some pieces that have striking, colorful prints into your closet. Rock a multi-colored, dreamy tie dye crop top, dress or matching legging and sports bra set to add an on-trend piece or set to your wardrobe. These usually pair well with chunky, white sneakers.
Add Pops of Color Through Accessories
Having a hard time narrowing down clothing items? You can start colorizing your looks with some bright pops of color and print in your accessories. If you’re doing a LBD or little black dress and some sneakers for the day, accessorize with a colorful cross-body bag. Neon colors + black are ALWAYS in. You can continue to rock your nude colored, matching sweatpant joggers and crop tops and still be colorful if you coordinate it with a pair of statement sneakers with fun designs and bright color schemes. Other accessories you can add color with are jewelry, scarves, silk headbands, brightly-colored scrunchies, colorful dad hats and even colorful nails!
Add Color in Your Athleisure and Fitness Apparel
Want to start transitioning into brighter colors? It may feel a bit forced and unnatural to suddenly start wearing neon pinks and yellows to the office when you’ve been rocking your chic blacks and trendy browns for so long. So start your transition with your workout clothes! Pick up some cute matching sets like printed yoga leggings and the matching printed sports bra, or some cute printed biker shorts and matching sports bra!
Add Color with your Kicks
Another great way to start sneaking more life into your wardrobe is to start adding pops of color through your shoes. Pretty much ANY all-black look will look super fashion-forward if you throw a bold color in the shoe. All black + a neon yellow, lime green or neon pink shoe looks super summery and still makes use of your flattering LBD or little black pants and crop top matching set.
Go Cold Turkey
Not afraid to dive in the deep end right away? Go big or go home! Rock some cute, colorful prints like glitter printed matching leggings and sports bra or a lime green/yellow bodycon dress to welcome the longer, sunny days ahead! Pinks and electric blues are other eye-catching shades that will shake up your style and give you an immediate POP!
