Keep Cool This Winter In Candy Colored Wool…

December 11th, 2012 by Fashion Staff

Who says fashion can’t be practical. Just because the weather is cold outside doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style for warmth. Take a page out of Rihanna’s fashion book and choose a wool coat in a popping color. Fall doesn’t have to signal a shift to drab colors, instead opt for jewel tones and muted pastel neutrals.

DO

Pick a Punchy Color! Wearing a wool coat in navy, black, or gray is so typical. Go for a pop color and wear something a bit more understated underneath to balance your wardrobe. Master this and you will look both chic and savvy.

DON’T

Match too much. Fashion overkill is real. If you decide on a yellow coat opt for another solid color for accessories. Head to toe matching went out in the 90s.
 

DO

Choose Wisely. Shop around and find the perfect coat for YOU! This means one that is flattering for both you skin tone and figure. There are many silhouettes and details that will hide or flaunt your best and worst features. Use them to your advantage.

You’ve seen the options, now get away from those drab color coats and step into a little living color!  Which color wool would you’d most likely experiment with?

Brighten up your Dreary Winter Wardrobe with Pops of Color

December 5th, 2012 by Fashion Staff

As temperatures begin to drop and sunlight gets shorter, color choices also take a nose dive. Summer/Spring bright yellows and happy pinks turn into dreary blacks and somber grays. In the more northern cities like New York and Chicago, people are less concerned with “making statements” and more concerned with keeping warm.  Winter has effectively dampened spirits.

Fortunately, it does not have to stay that way. A number of colorful pieces can be easier incorporated into dull hues to provide “pops” of colors that will brighten any gloomy days. Read on for  ways to incorporate pops of color to brighten your outfit and your mood.

 

Winter Coats

One of the easiest ways to add the color is to get a colorful coat. Designers like Milly Alexis are keen to the idea as well have made coats, like the one Leona Lewis is rocking, that will brighten any outfit immediately. Moncler also has a number of down coat that are meant to pop as well!

 

 

Bold Shoes

The ways to incorporate shoes to add pops of color are endless. Funky rainboots, bright pinks pumps, red ankle booties, bright oxfords…the options are endless. In an all-black outfit, shoes always add the perfect punch of color.

 

 

 

Bright Color Pants

Don’t be afraid to pop out your summer skinnies with a blazer. Those bright pants are the perfect way to add a splash of color without over doing it. They also double in keeping those legs warm!

  

 

 

Scarves

When in doubt, grab a scarf! They can be knotted, tied, or wore loosely around the neck. A vibrant scarf can be both practical in keeping you warm, and stylish in setting off your look.

 

Accessories

Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize! Your sunnies, nail polish, gloves all can serve as more settle ways to add pops of colors. A fresh mani and loud gloves, you can’t go wrong.

So don’t get stuck in the dull hues. Pack tons of color in your winter wardrobe and enjoy.  Summer will be back before you know it!
