It’s wintertime, and I find myself always wearing black, grey, or dark blue clothes. Like clockwork my bright, colorful, and fun wardrobe takes a turn down dreary lane every December. With all the cold wind and snow on the ground it is difficult to mix bright colors into daily outfits. However, I’ve decided to make a conscious effort to not let the winter weather bring my style down. According to Glamour’s Slave to Fashion: Daily Style Blog, the color orange is a great way to spice up a drab winter wardrobe.
Bright orange maybe all over the runways, but you don’t have to pay designer prices. I’ve found some inexpensive orange fashion fixes that will help you feel sunny even when the weather outside is anything but.
5 Orange Fashion Fixes
I love to wear sweaters in the wintertime because they are easy to layer and really keep you warm. Wear a bright orange or coral colored sweater with jeans and a pair of boots, and you’ll be toasty warm.
A girl can never have too many dresses. A simple dress is perfect for colder weather, because it can be paired with tights, heels, and a chunky sweater. This dress, from American Apparel, is the perfect inspiration piece for any outfit.
3. Any Occasion Top
Maybe a complete orange dress is too much for you. For a evening look try an orange top with black heels and jeans. Add some fun statement jewelry and you’ve got a complete look.
If you are afraid to incorporate orange into your wardrobe, start with a small amount of orange in your accessories. A great way to add some color around your face is with a pair of coral earrings. Even if you are dressed in all black, you’ll standout in the snow with bright accessories.
Every girl loves shoes. No matter what kind of day you’re having you can always count on your shoes to look good. Add a pair of orange shoes to your collection and start wearing them right away.
Frugal Fashion Tip
Always start at the sale rack when you go into a store. If you can find what you’re looking for on sale first you’ll save yourself a lot of money. I usually search the sale rack at multiple stores before I buy something that’s not on clearance.
