Splash of Color in Winter

thrifted, affordable

Black turtleneck: Lands’ End | White shirt: thrifted | Blazer: Ralph Lauren (Poshmark – similar) Pants: LOFT (similar) | Shoes: Cole Haan (Poshmark – similar)

We see a lot of deep, rich colors, gray and neutrals during fall and winter, but I felt compelled to incorporate bright colors into my outfits. 

Don’t get me wrong, I love rich colors and neutrals, but I’m a firm believer that bright colors have an uplifting effect on your mood.

While yellow is typically a spring/summer color, I winterized the look by layering multiple pieces up top.

Remember my last post on styling a fitted black turtleneck?

Well, here’s a bonus way! By layering a white button-up shirt like this over the turtleneck and topping it off with a blazer, you can layer up for warmth without having to deal with unsightly bulk. 

Black turtleneck: Lands’ End | Blazer: Ralph Lauren (Poshmark – similar) | Skirt: Halogen x Atlantic-Pacific | Shoes: Franco Sarto Carlee Platform Oxford

For this look, I styled this pleated skirt –  from Blair Eadie’s collection with Halogen – with the same Ralph Lauren blazer as above. I think the structured fit of the blazer creates a nice contrast with the flowy fit of the skirt.

Have fun. Shop your closet. Find some brightly-colored pieces and create fun looks to bring you some cheer during these wintry days.
