It's easy to get caught up in the camels, greys, maroons and mustards that come with fall fashion. We leave the brights behind with our summer memories and don’t about them again until the next hint of warm weather. This Fashionista, however creatively brightened up her made-for-fall outfit with a subtle hint of primary color on her belt.
This Fashionista dressed for one of the first cooler fall days following all the rules with a bit of a punch. Following this season’s trend of leopard print and breaking out boots for one of the first times, she’s geared up for fall. But these go-to items for fall will quickly grow boring at the cold weather drags on.
To cure the mood gray weather tends to bring, a bright “off-season” color to break up a fall or winter outfit is just the solution. Be careful, don’t overdo it with color during the cooler months, and keep it in moderation and save bright outfits for when the days get longer.
Hint: Accessories are a great way to add that surprise of brightness, but bright pieces don’t have to be limited to just a belt, bag, shoes or a scarf. Brighten up jeans and neutral boots or flats and a cardigan with a bright V-neck or go for a bolder look with corduroys in a brighter version of a fall hue. To get bright like the Fashionista seen here, check out this options from J. Crew in orange or splurge on this Prada belt from Bluefly.com that can be incorporated into your outfit all year round. Be careful with your brights, but just the right amount for this time of year will push the coming winter blues back and add a surprise element to an otherwise muted fall ensemble.
