Just because the weather is getting greyer doesn’t mean that you need to wear the clothes to match. Our favorite foil against the forces of Fall is Bright Color. Here’s how to get the look:
1. Start with a cheery skirt. The pretty polka dot pattern on this pencil skirt got this outfit off to the right start.
2. Add a patterned top for visual interest. Bonus points for one that also features bright color.
3. Bring in the color: a bright orange cardigan complements a spunky yellow peacoat (which in turn brings out the yellow on the graphic tee). The crimson red handbag fills out the spectrum of warm brights.
4. Finish off the outfit with a pair of grey slouchy boots. Black would be too harsh against these brights, but grey does the trick.
Bonus? For extra warmth, slip on a pair of tights to keep your legs nice and toasty.
