You may remember my post from a couple of weeks ago, where I talked openly about my style rut and how it was getting me down. So many of you left me amazing comments and tips, and one that kept cropping up was to start adding little pops of colour into my outfits. It’s a piece of advice that I really ran with, and I can safely say that since getting a little more colourful with my clothing, I’ve been that little bit more cheerful and much happier in my style. You guys really are the best!
So here are some of my own tips on how to make your style more colourful, and add in those bright, happy pops of vibrance to your everyday look.
1. Start With The Little Things
If you’re not used to wearing super bold, bright shades, why not start with the smaller garments and work your way up? It’s a really great way of easing yourself into a more colourful style. I love the attitude of new clothing brand Bryt, who are all about making people smile by using awesome colours and super fun patterns in their designs, including these adorable pink polka dot socks! They think a dash of colour may just be enough to bring some joy to your day, and I have to agree with them. Nothing seems so bad when you’re dancing around in bright pink socks, right?
2. Don’t Worry About What Others Think
Love it? Rock it! Whether we’re talking clothing or make up (I loved the million shades of pink and purple I used in this Unicorn make up tutorial) don’t worry so much about what other people think. At the end of the day, the better you feel about yourself the more confident you will appear – that’s the true mark of someone who is happy and bright in themselves. So if you want to add a splash of neon into your outfit, and love how it looks in the mirror, do it! If you try out your new super bold lipstick and feel like a total hottie, wear it out! We’re our own worst critics, so stop beating yourself up and do what feels right for you.
3. Try A New Shade
If you’ve got it in your head that a particular colour doesn’t suit you, why not put that theory to the test? You might just find that you’re totally head over heels for a shade that you’d usually never look twice at! These neon green socks from Bryt would not normally be my first colour choice, but after seeing how fun they look in action I’d love to try them out! Their motto is to make only super bright garments, which means there’s no hiding from colour – perfect for me and my new style outlook! Don’t be afraid to stray out of your comfort zone and try something new…you might end up loving your colourful items as much as your neutrals!
How do you like to add a little extra colour into your outfits and style?
