How To Add Colour To Your Wardrobe

Creating a colour-filled wardrobe can feel more difficult than it seems; monochrome staples in grey, white, and black can match almost any outfit, but other bright colours are often more of a statement piece.

Rather than carving out a wardrobe consisting of different shades of black, follow our list to add some colour in your life.

Wear White

If you’re used to a darker palette of clothing, then white might seem a little too much for you. Incorporating a few key white pieces into your wardrobe can help you get over this stigma, and enjoy the colour instead. Basic white t-shirts, blouses, skirts, and trousers are all great pieces to invest into since they can be worn both casually and on a night out.

Jeans

Sometimes avoiding basic black skinny jeans is the best way to make the transition into colour. Choose a light charcoal or navy blue to start off, and this will help to ease you into more colour. These jeans will act like a stand out piece of your outfit, especially when paired with other neutrals.

Double denim

Once considered a bad faux pas, double denim has had a fashionable makeover in the last few years. It is such an easy way to inject a bit of colour into your everyday clothing, without feeling too much out of your comfort zone.

Patterns

Choose shirts and jackets which feature trendy patterns to subside any fears about wearing colour. Houndstooth, checkered, and geometric prints are all fashionable ways to wear almost any piece of clothing. Start with something simple like a scarf with a toned down outfit.

Accessories

Let your accessories do the talking, and pick up some statement pieces such as a necklace or dainty bracelet. You will get some much wear out of these pieces, and they won’t be restricted to just one type of dress code.

White shirt

A crisp, white shirt is a wardrobe essential since it can be worn all year-round. Pair with black jeans, ankle boots and a sturdy handbag for a classic look which never goes out of style.

Suede

Model, blogger and photographer Zanita showed us the easiest way to incorporate a suede coat into our trans-seasonal wardrobe. The patchwork coat works beautifully with comfy denim and sandals.

2

Khaki

What’s better than a structured blazer for the autumn/winter months? A hint of khaki! It is perfect for those who are scared of colour and want to slowly transform their wardrobe (baby steps, of course).

3

Layering

Who says you can’t wear it all at once? Blogger Domenica Calarco of Vogue Vandal shows us the perfect way to pair stripes and make the most of that summer bustier.

4

Flares

There is no denying that flares are back this season and aren’t leaving anytime soon. So, what is is a girl to do? Embrace it and give the illusion that your legs are super-long by pairing them with sky-high heels.

5

Lace

Black lace never goes out of style, so making an investment in one of these pieces should be relatively guilt-freeā€¦ right? Blogger Vanessa Hong paired her skirt with a fitted leather jacket, and lust-worthy heels by Saint Laurent.

Statement accessories

If your outfits are relatively toned-down, spice it up with a statement clutch. Stylist Nicole Lucas was spotted at Carriageworks with this amazing Poppy Lissiman clutch.

Maxi dress

If you’re living in a warmer climate, it’s easy to throw on a maxi dress without a care in the world! Not only are maxi dresses perfect for any type of occasion you’ve got going on, but they are also incredibly comfortable.

Pregnancy Style: Dress For Your Bump

We were definitely inspired by Fashion Editor Miroslava Duma and her ability to look chic and comfortable during the later stages of her pregnancy (and juggling the month-long battle of fashion week!). Pair a maxi dress with sandals or flat shoes and a jacket for a perfect look.

Coats

The colder weather isn’t really that bad, since you can throw on a comfy coat over almost anything! Whilst comfort is most definitely key, you can accessorise with a number of different coats – wool coats, trench coats, chiffon coats and adapt them to the occasion and also the weather.

Pregnancy Style: Dress For Your BumpKaftans

Looking for the perfect cover-up for the beach or simply just the warmer weather? Kaftans are a great dress for pregnant girls since they aren’t restricting, and you can easy slip in and out of them at any given time.

Dress this look up for the evening by pairing a kaftan with a sexy pair of gladiator sandals (or heels, if you dare!).

Pregnancy Style: Dress For Your BumpTunics

Another great alternative to a dress is a funky tunic. You can choose to wear this item as a dress, or even as a top since it’s extremely roomy and won’t leave you feeling uncomfortable throughout the day or night. If the weather is a bit chilly, pair with leggings and form-fitting blazer over the top.

Pregnancy Style: Dress For Your BumpShawl

An evening shawl is the finishing piece to an outfit that comes in many different colours, shapes, sizes, and fabrics. Simply pop it over your shoulders if you’re feeling chilly, or even wear it over one shoulder for the perfect spring accessory piece.

Cropped jacket

A cropped jacket or blazer is a great piece to own, if you’re pregnant in the colder months. Not only is it a comfortable and stylish item, but it frames the body nicely by emphasising your growing baby bump! No need to go out and buy a new jacket, save some money by styling an existing piece from your closet.
