Fall is quickly approaching, and along with the cooling temperatures, we’re in store for quite the colorful surprise. If you’ve been limiting your palette to black, brown, and grey as soon as the first leaves hit the ground, you might want to update your look with a pop (or two!) of bright hues.
Renowned designers like Moschino and Michael Kors have been sending their models down the runways in everything from red suits to fuchsia and orange frocks.
So, here’s how you can brighten up your ensembles yet still look office/date with the hubby appropriate.
Step Out in a Colored Coat
Trench coats will be all the rage come fall, so make sure you scoop one up before the masses catch on. A coat in cherry red, emerald green, or deep purple will add color to your look again and again.
Invest in Heels…
We know you’ve become attached to your trusty black pumps, but let’s face it: so has just about every other woman! Stand out in the crowd with metallic kitten heels or wedge booties in an eye-catching shade.
…and a Vibrant Wardrobe Staple
You don’t have to OD on color to rock this trend, so splurge on a key piece you’ll wear dozens of times like a maroon blazer or lilac pleated skirt. Incorporating a few new key pieces into your wardrobe will save you from looking like a Rainbow Brite impersonator, not to mention a hefty credit card bill.
Accessorize in Brights
Swap your gold hoops for oversize studs in red, pink, yellow, or any other color of the rainbow. If you’re not one to ditch your fine jewelry in favor of going costume for a season, trade your usual belt for a bright braided one. For an additional topper, slip a painted wooden bangle onto your wrist.
Paint in Color
For a super simple way to give your ensemble a dose of color, treat yourself to a bright mani-pedi. For the faint of heart, remember: red nails are timeless and totally ladylike.
