If there’s one thing we at The Everygirl office are known for, it’s our love for neutrals — they’re classic, timeless, and you can wear them season in and season out. But when the weather starts giving us tastes of spring that give us hope after a long, gray winter, it can only mean one thing: it’s time to bust out some color.
Even for those of us who wear head-to-toe black for every occasion, there are ways to incorporate color into your wardrobe that won’t leave you deep breathing into a paper bag (And that won’t make you dive head-first into this season’s neon trend — was anyone ready for that? I’m honestly not sure.). With subtle additions to the clothes you already have, these pops of color will get you ready for the warm weather that (we hope) is quickly approaching. Here’s how:
Have your bag make a statement
You don’t need to make this an investment bag that you shell out a ton of cash for — instead, pick up a less-expensive, trendy bag in a pop of color that you can easily add to all of your neutral outfits.
Get earrings that pop
In the same breath as a statement bag, a pair of earrings in a pop of color can turn a look from on-my-way-to-a-funeral to a fun work outfit. Whether you go for coral, cobalt, or canary, all of these options scream “spring.”
Try out mustard
The color of the spring this year is mustard — a muted, dark shade of yellow that can be an easy addition to any wardrobe. Try one of these options:
Let your shoes do the talking
Investing in even just one pair of bright-colored shoes can bring a fun twist to your wardrobe all spring and summer long. If you already thrive on neutrals, they’ll go with everything you own, and can give you a little something different.
Venture away from a nude nail
Perhaps the most committal way to incorporate color into your life this spring is with a bright nail color. Try one of the of-the-moment nail colors like a vibrant coral, a mint green, or a steel blue.
