During the cold winter season, it’s easy to fill a closet with hoodies, sweatpants and moccasins, and it’s even easier to throw on basic outfits under a parka when snow starts to fall. I love comfy clothes as much as the next person, but I think it’s time that we all get out of our relationship with sweats. Colors can be a little intimidating to add to one’s closet. However, if we set our fears aside, we will discover a whole new world of fashion. These colors are not only trendy, but they are important in showing what you stand for.
Yellow clothing was never the easiest to find in stores, nor was it ever in high demand until this past spring and summer. Some trends come and go, but I believe that yellow clothing is here to stay. A yellow shirt with blue denim jeans, a yellow summer dress or a yellow skirt with a white top are a few outfits to consider. Yellow clothing is the most fashionable and trendy item to have because of how it can make you feel like sunshine. Wearing yellow makes you feel bright, and nothing else other than positive.
It’s that item in the back of your closet that you’re always too scared to pull out and include as part of your outfit. It’s time to conquer that fear head-on and put it on. Whether it’s that red dress, jacket or top, “bold, beautiful and bright” is my internal mantra when wearing red. It’s always been described as a color that makes you feel more empowered. Red is that color to wear when you want to stand out, but that’s also why it should be a part of our everyday outfits because it provides a way to stand out. Red never goes out of style when it comes to clothing, and it could just be that missing piece to your look. A simple pair of black denim jeans with a red top is a perfect way to incorporate color into your wardrobe.
If you want to make a classic fashion statement, blue is the color to wear. “Ask me why I’m wearing denim” is a slogan that goes along with Denim Day to raise awareness of sexual assault, and it’s one of the most powerful fashion statements you can make. Put on your favorite pair of skinny, flare or mom jeans that you have in your closet. Pull out that denim jacket and wear it on top. Conquer that fear of wearing denim on denim. This is a perfect example of stepping out of your comfort zone. There are so many colors in the world and their meanings are so powerful, so why not liven up your wardrobe?
