Recently, as I have scrolled through Instagram and Pinterest, I’ve noticed that less and less fashion bloggers, influencers and women in general are wearing and experimenting with color. While many claim that they prefer to wear black, grey and cream over the brighter shades, I think that many stray away from color because they are scared of it.
They are unsure of how to add an appropriate amount of color to their outfit while still looking polished and chic. However, it can be done.
Personally, I lean towards the warm-toned, darker, “fall” colors, such as burgundy, olive green, navy and burnt orange. These shades help me to add some color into my outfit, while still being versatile and easy to mix and match in my wardrobe. I’d like to think they are the “bridge-between-the-gap” of neutral tones and brighter colors!I got this top from ThredUp and it is originally from Madewell, but I got it for a much lower price! I am in love with the color and the pattern, and the fit of it! It serves as a great piece to add color to, as I did with this navy blue statement necklace. In the cooler months, I would most likely pair this blouse with an olive green army jacket, a pair of blue jeans, and brown riding boots! If you are new to experimenting with color, opt for a colored accessory, like a navy blue bag, like this one originally from Target. This is a practical and classy piece, but it still adds some more interest to any outfit! I personally would wear this bag year round, but I am especially excited to style it for fall. Because there is so much color on this outfit, I chose to go with a pair of black jeans and black lace-up flats to tone it down a bit. I would wear this outfit out to dinner, work, or anywhere in between!
