Cold winter days don’t have to be bleak and dreary — at least when it comes to your fashion sense! Now’s the time to update your wardrobe with pieces that are warm, comfy, and, most importantly, colorful.
Wondering how to add rich, vibrant colors to your winter outfits? Ohio Valley Goodwill has some tips to help you embrace the jewel-toned trend:
Jewel tones add a sense of richness and depth to any outfit, even an all-black look! For a smaller dose of color, consider accessories such as statement necklaces, bags, scarves, or even hats in vibrant jewel tones such as ruby, emerald, or sapphire. If you’re going for a more neutral look, try toned-down jewel hues such as amber, opal, or topaz.
Good news: You don’t have to choose just one jewel-inspired color per outfit! Jewel tones pair amazingly well together, so you can easily mix and match to expand your wardrobe. How about emerald green slacks with a ruby red top, or a sapphire navy dress with citrine yellow heels? When it comes to color, we say the more, the merrier!
Layering is essential in the winter when you might encounter freezing rain, snow, harsh wind, or even just a chilly office. If you’re going to be wearing multiple layers, why not make at least one of them a statement piece? Examples might include a bright amethyst cardigan over a white button-up, or a garnet red skirt over thick black tights. Once you find a jewel-toned statement piece that works for you, think of ways you can layer it with other pieces in your closet to create warmth and comfort!
