I think of fashion and style as a way to express yourself, your personality and (why not?) your “mood of the day”…
But I also think of fashion as something practical and versatile: most of us do not have time to stand in front of the closet for a long time, try 5 different outfits, fight with the mirror and keep trying until something decides to look gorgeous on us!
So, my practical side loves neutrals: they are everything you need for any situation right? You can use them with anything, dress up and dress down, look professional, clean, basic or chic…you can do anything with neutrals! Yeah…but they can also be boring. Very boring. That’s when I love the “pop of color” idea.
Don’t take me wrong – I do like color, but sometimes it can be tricky to figure out if a lot of color is appropriate for the place you are going to, or if it will give the wrong impression – such as you are too stylish and creative… I know it sounds crazy, but when you are the only one using bright colors inside a neutral word, you might just feel too colorful and lose your confidence…
So, going back to the “pop of color”…it sounds just right.
You can make your outfit “pop” with: colorful shoes, a bright talk under the jacket, a handbag, a bulky colorful necklace, a scarf…geez, there are so many ways to use that pop of color and make your outfit original, fun and perfect!
So, here are some ideas:
1- The scarf:
2- The shirt
3- The one “pop piece”: jacket, cardigan or tank
