Style Resolution #3 – Color

New Year’s style resolution #3 – embrace color!

I love wearing black – OMG how much do I love black?!  That and graphite grey, which is basically “light” black.  It’s easy, sophisticated, slimming (right?!), and beyond versatile.  But as simple as it is to have a variety of black options in your closet, wearing color brings out a brightness in your complexion and adds personality.

The good news is, you don’t have to go out and buy a new wardrobe to add color.  Think accessories and mixing/matching items you already own:

1.color - scarf  Add a scarf.  This is probably the simplest way to add color and completely on trend.  This scarf I found on Etsy is perfect for now and will transition into Spring with ease.





color - skirt


2.  Wear your color on the bottom.  If you’re not comfortable with a lot of color around your face, add color with a skirt like this one from Milly.






color - sweater3.  Pick a solid color, not a print.  I find that so many people are afraid of prints and they translate that into a fear of color.  Pick a color that looks good on you and wear it as a solid.  As Coco Chanel once said, “The best color in the world is the one that looks good on you.”
