I have to admit the title might be a bit dramatic , but on some level I really am a color-fob . My goal when adding new pieces to my wardrobe is to encrease its versatility and for some reason that means that I rarely buy colorful things , and as a disclaimer there is nothing wrong with that I love neutral outfits and think they can be really effortless and chic , the thing is that in the summer I feel like color can really make an impact on your outfit also I feel like as a lover of fashion I should try to open my own fashion horizons.
If you are somewhat afraid of wearing color , there is certainly a way of incorporating it in order to achieve that impact but still feeling comfortable and age appropriate. Firstly accessories are a great way to start as well as being an inexpensive item they are small and can be a good middle ground. For example I am loving statement , colorful bags for this spring summer season, also if you have been reading my blog for a while you might already know about my love of statement necklaces , which can be another small yet impactful way of adding color.If you are feeling particularly daring this summer why not try a bright blazer or a nice printed one that incorporates color.
A very popular trend this summer has been sporty chic and as it happens I really think that this particular trend really lends itself to bright pops of color . The outfit I put together might not be to everyone’s taste but I am in love with the tennis feel of it as well as those crazy bright Nikes .
This next outfit is a great casual yet work appropriate outfit, which incorporates color in two major ways , firstly in the bag as well as the blazer. I chose the blazer first and tried to find a bag that fit in the same color scheme as the print on the blazer , I think that when adding color in two pieces you should try to get them in the same color scheme don`t go chasing to get them to match exactly.
For a more evening appropriate look I went for a very easy all black look that I spiced up with an amazing necklaces as well as a gorgeous beaded handbag.
How do you feel about color ? are you a total color lover or does it scare you a bit? Please let me know .
