How to Wear Bright Colors This Winter?

Of course you don't have to look like a crayon box but its okay to wear bright colors in the winter.  Usually when the temperature changes to below 50 degrees, we naturally gravitate towards wintery colors which typically include darker colors (blacks, grays and browns). We all have that favorite piece in our wardrobe that is bright and would love to wear it in the winter but of course we are afraid of the fashion critics and the timeless fashion rules that have been stuck in our heads since we were little. Nevertheless, instead of braving the cold in a head-to-toe gray-scale uniform, why not infuse some warmer tones into your look? Pile on the oranges, reds, and yellows to bring a warm ray of sunshine to an urban wardrobe.  So you begin questioning yourself. Are those only for spring and summer? How can I wear this bright color and not seem like I'm going on trip to the beach? 

Well today my sisters, you came to the right place.  I'm going to show you how to turn your bright colored wardrobe into the most stylish wintery looks ever. When we are finish you are going to be anxious to dive into your wardrobe to style this winter. Below are a few tips

Bright sweaters

The very fact that this is a sweater makes you even more prepared for the winter. Now you are wondering what I wear with my bright sweaters.  You can pair it with darker toned slacks or denim and layer with your favorite jacket and scarf. For example a mint green sweater will look great paired with boot cut denims, brown heels and a khaki trench and printed scarf. 

Bright jeans/pants 

Of course jeans and pants can be worn year round but we do sometimes question ourselves, can I wear bright colored bottoms in the cooler seasons?  Umm yes you can. As I mentioned before, it's how you style the look. You can pair bright colored skinny jeans with neutral toned boots i.e. Brown and black and wear an oversized dark or printed sweater to add texture to your look to give it warmth. This can help tone down your bright bottoms.
