6 Ways to Brighten Up Your Winter Wardrobe

With the winter months come cold weather, shorter days and the winter blues. The gloomy weather gets all of us down—even our outfits, which tend to be all black or gray. But there’s an easy fix to this, and that’s adding a pop of color to your ensemble! Whether it’s a small accessory or a larger piece of clothing, adding some color to your outfit might be just what you needed to cheer you up this season.

1. Cozy up in a colorful wool coat women

Coats are a winter wardrobe staple, so they’re the perfect way to introduce some fun hues into your outfit. A nice woolen coat already keeps you warm during the chilly months, but wearing one in a color like a mint or royal blue will make your outfit much cheerier than an all-black getup. Wearing darker colors on the bottom half of your outfit will prevent the outfit from looking too over-the-top and colorful.

2. Rock a statement scarf

Only looking to add a splash of color to your winter wardrobe? A scarf is a perfect, subtle way to instantly brighten up an outfit. Plus, it’s super warm! Wear yours with a neutral coat (in black or white, for instance) to avoid overkill, and voila! A warm winter outfit that’s a lot merrier than the weather.

3. Match your hat to your bag

Every collegiette has to transport her books to class somehow, so it might as well be in a stylish and fun-colored bag! Wearing a hat in the same bold color is guaranteed to boost your mood even more. Even if you’re in a black coat and boots, a little pop of color here and there is a great way to liven up your winter wardrobe!

4. “Give a girl the right shoes…”

A little black dress is a go-to piece for a night out on the town that allows you to get super creative with your accessories. Pick up a pair of fun and bright heels in a neon color. Bold pumps like these will be refreshing in a sea of dreary blacks this winter, and who knows whose attention they’ll catch?

5. Make your blouse stand out

When looking for an easy outfit to throw on for class, why not go for a colored blouse? It’ll make an otherwise gloomy outfit a little more exciting. You could pair it with a colorful bangle or other pieces of jewelry to spruce up the outfit even more. Polish of the look with a pair of black pants and your favorite riding boots, and you’ll be the most stylish girl in the lecture hall.

6. Sport some pants with a pop

During winter, we collegiettes wear pants almost all the time, so they’re a great way to bring a vibrant hue into an outfit with minimum effort. To make your look even more exciting, don’t be afraid to go bold with a bright pattern. We love the beautiful light blue of these pants—it will fit right in with the snowy winter scenery—but any color will work as long as you balance it out with neutrals in the rest of your look.

All it takes to lift your mood and turn some heads is a little pop of color! We know these bright ideas will inspire you to get out of your gray-sweater rut. You could even browse your summer wardrobe for lighter, brighter items to wear under your coat and over your tights!
