This was a very boring, neutral outfit until I added a pop of color with my purse. I received this London Fog Orange/Coral/Red (I really have no idea what color it is) from my daughter for my birthday. I hadn't used it yet because I thought it was more appropriate for the spring/summer months when it would match my clothes more. But when I was about to leave my house and I automatically started to reach for my brown tote, I thought "Nah. There's enough brown in this outfit. Lets try a more colorful bag!" The orange tote really brought some much life into an otherwise dull outfit!
It was 0 degrees when I left my house so I was dressed purely for warmth and comfort. I put a cream colored turtleneck (old, Worthington) on under a striped asymmetrical long sweater (J.C. Penney ), brown leggings and socks (old), and brown suede and fur boots (old).
For jewelry, I chose a simple silver bracelet, and a long silver necklace with crystal and taupe clear beads.
Here is a close up of this pretty structured London Fog bag. I'd love to hear your thoughts of what color you would call it.
I knew I would be standing for hours at my musical practice, so I chose comfortable footwear. I picked these boots up while in Italy over six years ago, and I still have them! They are not practical for extreme cold weather and snow, but they are quite cozy in other winter conditions.
I really like this sweater because of the asymmetrical cut and it is so comfortable, long, and thin. I think it fits well, but I'm not sure the wide stripes are very flattering for someone like me who is heavier on top than on the bottom. When I read the reviews on the JCP site, someone else agreed and said the top was not flattering for the curvier woman. I know stripes are all the rage in fashion right now, but I still have mixed feelings about them.
And now, here are more ways to add color to your winter outfits from Pinterest!
1. Don't just add color with a handbag...wear colorful shoes too!
This is a summer outfit, but a colorful necklace would work with neutral winter clothes as well.
I have a bright red pea coat that I wear on warmer winter days that is so pretty and cheerful.
So what about you? Do you like all the dark, neutral fashion colors of winter or are you craving some colors in your wardrobe? How do you like to add color to your neutral outfits?
Have a Great Day! Amy
