FOR THE NEUTRAL-OBSESSED | HOW TO INCORPORATE A SPLASH OF COLOR INTO YOUR SPRING WARDROBE

FOR THE NEUTRAL-OBSESSED | HOW TO INCORPORATE A SPLASH OF COLOR INTO YOUR SPRING WARDROBE

If you peek into my closet you'll find that most 90-percent of my wardrobe consists of black, white, or grey. While I'm not ashamed of the lack of color that my closet holds, sometimes a pop of color is just what I need to complete my ensembles.  But as someone who is neutral-obsessed and hardly ever wears bright colors I understand how hard it can be try take a new fashion risks. 

This post is for the all-black lovers, the monochromatic obsessed, and those who want to try incorporating a splash of color into their spring ensembles.


BRIGHT ACCESSORIES

Colorful accessories are probably the easiest way to add color into a primarily neutral outfit.  Since accessories — such as earrings, a purse, or sunnies — aren't the main focus of a look, it's easy for someone who isn't comfortable with bright colors to incorporate a pop with small statements.  Here are some accessories that I love:

 

STATEMENT JACKETS

A pretty-colored jacket is my personal favorite way to add liveliness to any look. Why? Because your outfit underneath can remain neutral, but can be brightened up just by your outerwear. As an added bonus? Your look doesn't have to be colorful the entire day, just when you're outside. Here are some of my favorite pieces:

 

MULTI-COLOR FOOTWEAR

There's something about a crazy shoe that I just love. Not only are they a great way to amplify a basic ensemble, but shoes are a great way to get your entire outfit noticed. That's right ladies —if you have a bright-colored shoe on the focus will be taken from your head all the way down to your feet. Check out my must-have shoes:
