After a long winter, you are probably feeling ( and maybe looking) a little dragged down, which means you could likely benefit from a good dose of color. Lift your spirits and your style by experimenting with some uplifting hues. Here are four ways to incorporate bright and cheery colors into your spring wardrobe.
1. Wear a Bright Top with White Jeans
Once the warm weather arrives, one of the freshest, classiest looks is a pair of crisp white pants and a bright clear top. This gorgeous hot pink wrap top will bring a glow to your cheeks and a smile to your face. Pair it with a blush purse and nude sandals to complement the warm pink tone and let the top remain center stage.
You will look like a million bucks with a touch of gold jewelry.
2. Add a Colorful Scarf
If you are a gal, who prefers neutrals but would like a little color lift, a pretty scarf is a fantastic way to do that. This bright yellow scarf with the cute tassel trim is right on in terms of both trending colors and style. Remember, even this little paint shot will bring life to your face a long way.
A scarf is also a great layering piece that adds a lot of dimension to an outfit and will take your look from average to extraordinary.
3. Buy a Bold Print
If you are the type of gal with too many dark dresses, lighten up this spring in a pretty floral dress with a bold print in bright colors. This stunning floral sheath dress with the ruffle hem is a real head-turner and will make you look much fresher and more youthful than a plain navy or black dress.
Try it, and don’t be surprised how a dress like this can lift your energy and mood.
4. Try Colored Jeans or Capris
Blue jeans are okay, but colored jeans can look fantastic, especially in the spring and summer when the season demands lighter and more relaxed denim. These pastel pink capris are as pretty as a spring flower and look super cute with this cold shoulder embroidered top.
Take a chance; try something new. Life is too short to always be in blue jeans.
5. Incorporate a Bright Shoe
Many gals hate to give up black, and you don’t have to. If you love the slimming, chic nature of black but want to boost it, try this: add a sexy bright shoe. This gorgeous red suede pump is exactly what this outfit needs to make it come alive.
I’ve paired the outfit with a vibrant floral print top with black as its backdrop, but you could stay will all black, and the red shoe is what you prefer. Either way, that shot of red adds a lot of excitement and sex appeal!
Did you know that if you can identify the perfect colors to match your skin and hair color, you are halfway there to have great style? Color is critical when it comes to looking Fabulous after 40.
