BE BOLD WITH COLOR

Hi! I’m Jess from Stylepint and I’m taking over today.

I am always on the search for outfits that look and feel like a second skin. It doesn’t have to be super simple or completely outrageous, but it should convey your personality and make you happy. This thrifted outfit is one of my favorites because of the beautiful colors.

When I wear a relatively conservative outfit, I like to spice it up somehow. Instead of wearing neutral colors all the time, I like to add color. It’s a polished professional look that still says, “I like to have fun.”

People tend to shy away from color or only use it sparingly in an outfit. But I say, go bold and experiment!

One way to wear color is to pick a hue and wear two different shades together. In my outfit, I’m wearing two shades of purple. The blue-purple top is balanced by the red-purple (magenta) skirt. The colors won’t clash as long as you don’t try to match them. Color should be an asset to enhance your outfit and take it from ordinary to extraordinary.
