Are You One of Those People Who Wants to Add Color But Doesn’t Know How?

There are so many people who really do want to add color to their wardrobe but don’t know how. Some teenagers that I’m friends with are scared of looking tacky or immature,  and some adults I know fear looking wannabe-teenage. I understand. I really do. But sometimes, you have to take risks. And besides, let’s say you’re applying for a job as a spokesperson. They want someone special, quirky, memorable, and different. There are eight other men and women applying for the job. You’re all wearing black. If they say, “Steve, remember the girl in the black dress? She was pretty good.” Steve will say, “Um, Bob, there were three girls wearing black dresses. Don’t worry about it, though, because judging by her outfit, she’s nothing special” But if you had worn an orange dress with nude pumps, there’s a good chance Bob would’ve said, “girl in the orange dress,” and Steve would’ve said, “Oh yeah. That was SarahLily. She was pretty good. I’ll contact her.” 

See? 😉 

Easier Way to Wear Color: Shorts

Shorts are comfortable and timeless, not to mention they can be dressed up or down. Wear a brightly hued pair with a white tank, any type of shoe (except sneakers or snow boots!), and possibly a necklace.

Easy Way to Wear Color: Bright Blazers

This is a more daring way to wear color. But you can do it. Use this picture of Kourtney Kardashian as inspiration;

If her blazer had been black, the outfit would’ve still been trendy, but it wouldn’t been unique. Wearing color is the easiest way look special.
