You never really realize how much color you don’t wear until you’re sorting through your laundry and everything you’re hanging up is black, white, gray, and the occasional navy blue. If you know what you like, all power to you, but having staple pieces in your closet that combine colors and neutrals holds the opportunity for showing off personality and putting a little pep in your step.
Sure, it’s easy to say, “I’m going to start wearing colorful clothes!” but actually doing so when you’re not used to it could be difficult to start. You don’t have to be completely colorblocked or dressed to the nines wearing every color on earth, but an easy way to start is to incorporate subtle pops of color mixed in with your fave neutrals.
Not only is it easy, but it’s an eye-catcher too. The green detail on your shoes? To die for. Delicately placed florals on a neutral background? We can’t think of anything more precious. Looking for more inspo? Don’t worry—we’ve got you covered on that below.
When it comes to adding color to any fit, one of our favorite places to add it is our shoe game. We love that these ones offer a pop of color without going overboard, making them the perfect addition to any neutral outfit. And if the swoon-worthy, sleek design wasn't enough, get this: Thousand Fell shoes are the first recyclable sneaker—they're made from vegan bioleather derived from corn waste. Plus, they include rPET laces and lining, recycled yoga mat insoles, and a quartz coating on the exterior to resist liquids and prevent stains. Thousand Fell offers $20 toward your next pair if you send them back to be recycled at the end of their life cycle. That's a total win in our book.

Another easy way to incorporate color is with graphic tees. Often, graphic tees have a solid base with colored graphics in the center of the torso. This baby tee has a simple blue embroidery in the center and at the collar. Looking to elevate it? Pair it with some blue jeans for a monochromatic look.
I can just picture myself at a picnic in this polka-dot number. Classic patterns like polka dots and gingham are an excellent way to feel comfortable while adding some color to your wardrobe. Different colors are often paired with a neutral when it comes to these patterns, offering many options and endless possibilities.
