TREND: Color Splash

Spring semester has arrived but that doesn't mean the weather that comes with it is here too. The East Coast, particularly New York, has been hit repeatedly by snowstorms and there seems to be no sign of it stopping anytime soon. The weather has been so dark and wet that all we want to do is stay in bed and never come out! Unfortunately, that can't happen and it's time to leave the sack and hit the books once more.

Some people drink tons of coffee to get ready for the day but this fashionista definitely knows exactly how to perk up anyone’s day. She is wearing a bright red coat over an all black ensemble with a white Marc by Marc Jacobs bag. Her outfit was ok enough as it is but with the addition of the coat, it went from ok to absolutely perfect! When I saw her, my day immediately brightened. Just look at that pop of color and that dazzling smile! She, no doubt, stood out among the sea of black that I normally see in New York City.

Don't get me wrong though. Anything black will always be chic and classic to me but adding a pop of color to an all black anything won’t hurt. Take a cue from our fashionista. Her daring move to wear such a vibrant color worked! If you are not feeling as daring as her, try switching it up. Instead of wearing a bright colored coat, wear a bright colored dress under a black coat as an alternative. If that’s still isn’t your cup of tea, get that needed pop of color from your accessories instead like your scarf or bag.

Remember that color is our friend and not our enemy. Don’t be afraid to try something different and make a splash. It may eventually pay off. 

Hint: Check out Old Navy and H&M for fun vibrant coats and dresses that will last you for sessions to come.
