For those of us that tend to dress on the darker side Spring/Summer can be a tough time.
While everyone else is walking around in their breezy white summer dresses our choices get narrowed down by which of our blacker than black shirts has the lightest most airy fabric.
A great trick for helping to lighten things up during the warmer months without completely abandoning your oh-so-fashion-forward creature of the night color preference is to add in a little pop of color.
I truly believe that black can be worn in ANY SEASON but during the summer months it’s great to brighten things up a bit with some color and the good news is that black matches EVERYTHING!
Adding a pop of color through shoes or a bag is one of my favorite ways to style a look plus adding a bright, statement color will up your style cool points by like a gazillion and it’s a great way to showcase your personal style.
The right accessories can completely transform a look. For example this dress when paired with hot pink heels, a color blocked bag and white belt could be oh so bubblegum but by paring it with a bandanna, straw bag, western belt and striped sandals it gives off an edgy modern western vibe.
The next time you reach for all black try adding a bold red, cheery yellow or cool blue accessory within your own personal style wheelhouse. It can be a belt, bag, shoes, scarf, bandanna or necklace. Choose whatever you feel comfortable with, just get that color in there!
By incorporating this styling trick, you might even find yourself wearing unexpected outfit combinations you normally wouldn’t. I swear it opens all new exciting fashion doors!
