How to Accessorize Your Outfit With Color

Creating a style for one piece of clothing can be really difficult. For example, buying a trendy skirt thinking you will find a top to match, doesn’t always work out as planned. You have to be a bit more strategic when buying bold clothing items. One way to always incorporate some color into your wardrobe is through accessories. These can be anything from scarves, to hair clips, down to your shoes. Having these items is a great way to add a little something extra to your outfits. Check out some tips below to help you add a pop of color to your day!

Types of Accessories: 

  • Scarves: Wearing a scarf is the probably the boldest colorful accessory you can add to your outfit. Since it’s so close to your face, it can be very attention-grabbing. It’s also probably the easiest accessory to add. If you prefer to wear plain clothes, wear a patterned or colorful scarf. If you’re the opposite and like patterned clothes, just wear a plain scarf.

Another wonderful thing about scarves is that you can wear them all year round. Of course, wearing a thick,knitted scarf will always be fashionable, but now you can also wear them in the summer. Both billowy summer scarves and thin bandanas worn around the neck are a must-have. They can be a bit quirky, which adds some flare to an outfit. 

  • Jewelry: While this is more of an accessory for women, it’s still very popular and can add a lot to your outfit. It can be either bold or subtle, colorful or muted, or even chunky or delicate. Choosing which one to go with depends on your personal style and which outfit you’re accessorizing, but the possibilities are endless. There’s also a wide range of jewelry to consider for your outfit, like earrings, necklaces, and bracelets, to name a few. Like most accessories, choosing the right jewelry can either make or break your outfit. 

Be careful when choosing your jewelry though. Since it’s such an easy and quick addition, people can sometimes go overboard and add too much. The rule ‘less is more’ is helpful when deciding which pieces and how many pieces of jewelry you should wear. 

  • Shoes: Shoes are great accessories, because they’re a part of every look, whether it’s casual, sporty, or formal. Even though they’re used to complete nicer looks, most people are concerned about accessorising their everyday looks, which are either casual or athletic. For both looks, an easy and popular accessory is a pair of slide sandals. Regardless of the style you’re dressing for, you can always try a pop of color instead of wearing neutral colors. Putting on a pair of pink slides would look great against black or white athletic gear. Or if you prefer the casual look, you could rock a bright pair with jeans and a T-shirt! 

No matter what your accessory(ies) of choice are, it’s clear that you can do a lot with your outfit. Also, if you’re a bit unsure of these accessories, you can always play around with some makeup! It never hurts to try a bold color of lipstick or some fun eyeshadows. 

Have fun and play around with your options, because you never know what you’ll discover!
