One of the keys to spicing up a wardrobe is to venture outside of your fashion comfort zone! This doesn’t have to mean harem pants when you’re a chinos kind of gal, or a neon jumpsuit when shirt dresses are more your pace. It could be as simple as a change of shoes. Below are some examples.
When it comes to colors, remember your color wheel, and think across the circle. If you’re wearing a dark color on top, opt for light on the bottom. Simply said, but not always simply done. A lot of people’s instincts tell them to match things, thus keeping pieces in the same color family. This isn’t necessarily wrong, it’s just safe. Try more adventurous combos, like coral and turquoise, yellow and deep purple, or simply black with bright white.
Pay attention to warm and cool when accessorizing. When donning a cooler-hued ensemble, instead of reaching for the silver (another cool), think about warming it up with gold jewelry. And vice versa.
Do you always reach for black shoes to go with your black dress? You don’t have to! Instead, opt for an interesting neutral (blush, metallic, and animal print are all considered neutral) or a funky color, like red. This will throw something unexpected into the mix, while still blending with your entire look.
Your bag can serve one of two functions, aesthetically speaking. It can either complement what you have on, or serve as the ‘wow’ factor for your whole ensemble. If your outfit is muted and simple, then you should punch it up with a vibrant handbag. However, if you’ve already ventured into bold territory with your color palette, shoes, or jewelry, then opt for a calmer bag that doesn’t compete with those choices. And remember, your purse doesn’t have to match your shoes. We’re way past that!
