Easy Style Tips: How to Add Color to Your Outfit
As much as I try to pay attention to how I look, I’m the first one to admit that I look for easy style tips rather than complicated ones. I don’t have the time (or patience) to try out complicated makeup looks, and when I think of fashion, minimalist is more my style.
I really love the minimalist wardrobes with base colors of navy, tan, black and white but I need those pops of color to feel put together. Jeans and a white t-shirt can look amazing with a pair of Keds and the right accessories. Here are a few easy ways to add color to your outfit:
Add a Scarf
Choose linen or silk in the warmer months and cashmere or wool during the winter.
Paint your nails
A simple coat of nail polish can dress up your outfit. If you enjoy it, experiment with a few simple nail designs. Check out these pumpkin nail designs.
A fun chunky bracelet or a bold statement necklace will add color and style.
Depending on the color, you can add a shimmery eyeshadow to brighten up your look. Not into eyeshadow? How about a bold red lipstick?
Change your shoes
While most of my shoes are neutral colors so I can wear them with a variety of outfits, it can be fun to have a cute pair of colorful shoes.
Accessorize your phone
Choose a stylish phone. Who says tech has to be boring?
Jonathan Adler’s designs span furnishings to fashion. Now, he brings his penchant for impeccable craftsmanship and irreverent luxury to personal technology in an inspired collaboration with Motorola. He created three limited editions of the Moto X Pure Edition.
Choose the style that fits you and get all these features.

I love turquoise and need to wear more of it since I have a ton! I love my scarves too. Thanks for the motivation.
Always glad to share!
I love these tips!!! I love to change up my scarfs with my outfits and my shoes, it can really set a whole new tone for the outfit!
I completely agree, Vera!
I love the bracelet. Great tips.
I love adding a statement bracelet or scarf especially on winter mornings when I feel pale and washed out. These are a great way to help me wake up a bit and start the day!
I agree. You really need extra color in the winter.
It really is so easy to add color to an outfit. I think painting your nails to match is so great. I wish I had more time to do that. A scarf or jewelry is what I do.
I can always use more time too!
For me, I find wearing colored socks to be a perfect ‘pop’ of color that isn’t in your face. Bonus points if they match my tie!
LOL, Scott. Guys definitely have different solutions!
