Lately, I’ve been wearing a lot more colour than I used to. I always was a neutrals kind of gal, and even though I’ll always will be, I do like to play around with some different (bold) shades here and there. Still, it’s not always easy to incorporate bright colours into your outfit, so I figured I could pen down a couple of ways that make the progress easier (and fun!).
The easiest way to start wearing more colour is probably by adding some bright accessories. Go for a bandana scarf for example. Try wearing it in your hair, around your neck, as a belt or as a bag accessory. I recently picked up a striped one from Zara that has all kinds of funky hues. It doesn’t stop at scarfs of course, you could also opt for shoes, a bag, a pair of Serengeti sunglasses, socks, a lipstick or some jewellery in a different colour.
Another relatively easy way to play with colour is through the use of prints. Let’s say you want to try wearing some red, but you don’t exactly know how to add it to your outfit. A classic red + white striped item (such as a shirt or a tee) can help do the trick. Or go for a printed top with a text message in a bright colour.
Mix with trusty favourites
Speaking of prints, I recently started wearing some more of those myself, and not just stripes. For some reason, I feel like prints in a bold shade are actually quite accessible, as long as I mix them with some trusty favourites like a pair of jeans.
If you’re, like me, into neutral shades like nudes, whites and greys, “bridging” might help you brightening up your colour scheme in a subtle way. I started wearing orange for example by pairing it with nudes and whites. Those shades are more or less related to each other and easy to mix together.
