When it comes to winter fashion, the colour palette usually reflects the neutral shades of the season. Although black, brown and grey might be the go-to traditional hues, you can certainly play around with vibrant shades to give your outfit a fresh appeal.

The key is finding staples that you can easily incorporate into your professional and personal life. In other words, stay away from head-to-toe neon green ensembles. Opt for a dark red top with dark pants instead, or choose a pair of metallic earrings as a fashionable way to complete your outfit. Here are some helpful suggestions on how you can easily brighten up your wardrobe and make it look effortless.


Statement Top

One of the easiest ways to introduce some colour into your style is by adding a statement piece like this yellow windowpane elbow sleeve top. Muted yet bright, you can pair it with fitted plaid print pants for a perfectly polished office look. Need to find something for the weekend? Layer this top with slim leg jeans for a casual, but put-together look. To take your outfit to the next level, we suggest you find matching yellow shoes or chunky bracelets for the final golden touch.

A Stunning Scarf

An accent scarf will not only bring an element of “je ne sais quoi” to your ensemble, but it will also add a little layer of warmth during the colder months. Experiment with different patterns and fabrics to see which one speaks to you the most. If you’re looking for something stylish and elegant, something like our lightweight red scarf with an eye-catching leaf print might do the trick! Wrap the scarf over a black or dark brown blouse to make it truly pop around your neck.

An Elegant Blazer

A blazer can elevate any look. If you ever think that your outfit is missing something then we encourage you to throw on a textured blazer. We promise it will make you feel put-together and ready to tackle the day. You can either go for the matching pantsuit look or wear it separately with a crisp white blouse and slim leg jeans. Keep a few different shades in your arsenal to seamlessly mix and match with different pieces in your closet, for either the boardroom or for the casual Sunday brunch date.

Embellished Earrings

You can have a lot of fun trying out accent jewelry to add some dazzle to your day when the weather outside is drab and grey. It can be something as subtle as a delicate emerald ring or blue rhinestone and crystal-embellished earrings like the ones pictured here. Both simple and brilliant, these dangle earrings will certainly be a great conversation starter wherever you go. If you have a formal event scheduled soon, these will be a glamourous addition indeed.

Stylish Jumpsuit

People don’t think of jumpsuits when it comes to winter, but we would like you to keep an open mind. Most jumpsuits come with straps so you can easily complement it with sweaters or long sleeve tops. For a business casual look, for example, try pairing a neutral jumpsuit with a patterned blouse underneath. If you have a special celebration coming up, opt for a bold jumpsuit for a confident and comfortable look that you’ll love wearing all night. Slap on a nice shade of lipstick and you’re good to go!
