Particularly when it’s cold outside, many of us get into the routine of always wearing monochromatic neutrals from head to toe—or even falling into an “all-black everything” style rut. And while there’s certainly nothing wrong with these most classic of colors, why not step out of your comfort zone and add some oomph to your neutral outfits with the three easy tips below:
Opt for a bright coat over your usual black one. Sure, it makes sense to have at least one item of black outerwear in your closet—but a colorful topper is about a hundred times more likely to turn heads.Choose a dressed-up bootie. Ankle booties are it for fall and winter; their versatility puts every other footwear style to shame. Go for a version with grommets, studs or tassels, though, which’ll add far more interest to your outfit than a basic bootie will.Glam up your sweater with a statement necklace. Make your simple sweater feel more festive by pairing it with a statement necklace that sits right on the neckline, faking the look of an embellished collar. It’s an easy way to take a basic knit from plain to party-ready!
