You see this advice all the time – just add a pop of colour to your wardrobe. Sounds easy, right?
Except that some of you are colour-phobic; wearing only black (or some other neutral) from head to toe. How does the “I-only-wear-one-colour” person start to bring in brighter shades?
Well, good news. Spring is the best time to do this. Shops are simply bursting with the fresh-squeezed shades of spring/summer. Here are some simple tips to add a pop of colour to your outfit:
- Choose a brightly coloured bag. This season, most designers have added bright orange, lime green, hot pink and the bold primary colours of red, blue and yellow. No, it doesn’t have to match your shoes or belt.
- A sassy scarf can easily brighten any outfit by adding a splash of colour right next to your face. This is particularly helpful for mature women who normally favour black. Black against delicate facial skin is very aging, so a scarf is a great answer.
- I’m loving the cute and colourful shoes for spring! And, bonus, ballet flats are big this year and bursting with the colours of the rainbow. Shoes are also incorporating patterns, such as florals and graphics. Shoes make any outfit, so be bold.
- Pastels are also big for spring. Look for soft lilac, warm blush, baby pink, mint green and delicate peach. Pair pastels with the jewel-tone version of the same colour for extra punch.
