Tired of wearing the same old drabby black outfits and boring sweaters? Are you looking in search of the perfect outfit and were left with what seemed to be the aftermath of the Tasmanian Devil visiting our closet rather than the Devil Wears Prada? Most of us wear the same paired items all year long and just need to spruce them up or brighten them up a bit. A little secret most Fashion Novas keep in their back pocket is the importance of adding a pop of color.
We’ve outlined a few easy tips for brightening up your favorite wardrobe outfits with this one easy trick.
One of our favorite ways to add a pop of color is with a bright red scarf. Pair your scarf with any black ensemble for a sophisticated yet professional look. Looking to add jewelry as a pop? Make sure your jewelry is kept to a minimum of two statement pieces at a time (we prefer one).
Another one of our favorite fashion trends is to wear a heel that is opposite to the color spectrum you’re wearing. If you’re wearing navy, pair it with your favorite bright-white pump. Wearing all black? Try a red booty for the perfect amount of pop.
Handbag / Backpacks
Bags are by far our favorite way to both dress up an outfit or add that touch of color that ties it all together. A large handbag, small clutch or even a backpack, can add just the right amount of “pop” to any outfit. Looking to tie the outfit all together? You can add even more fun by matching your bag to your favorite pump or flat.

When looking to add a pop of color to large clothing pieces, make sure to have one statement item that pops or you’ll overdo it. Looking to wear a red dress, black blazer and black pumps? We love it. Having a large statement piece such as a dress as well as additional accessories will lose the pop factor, we suggest keeping the large statement pieces as your only “pop”.
Are you a rule breaker? Be you! Fashion is all about “the trend” but can be left to interpretation. The timeless secret of the pop of color (never with prints) helps brighten up even the dullest outfits and can transition most day outfits into a night outfit in seconds.
