If you’re like many women we know, you’re a big fan of neutral colors. And we get it: neutral shades are easy to pair with other neutral shades. And if you have a busy schedule, you just don’t have time to match colors when you’re on the run.
But your outfit might not be speaking as boldly as you’d like. It’s easy to drown in a sea of beige, leaving your fashion choices to come across as nondescript. And we know you’re anything but boring, right?
That’s where accessories come in (and yes, jewelry counts…yay!)
Wikipedia defines accessories as:
Fashion accessories can be loosely categorized into two general areas: those that are carried and those that are worn. Traditional carried accessories include purses and handbags, eyewear, hand fans, parasols and umbrellas, wallets, canes, and ceremonial swords.
Accessories that are worn may include jackets, boots and shoes, cravats, ties, hats, bonnets, belts and suspenders, gloves, muffs, jewelry, watches, sashes, shawls, scarves, lanyards, socks, and stockings.
Now, we know you may not have many ceremonial swords in your closet, but accessories cover a wide scope. And that’s where color comes in.
Review your closet and see where you could brighten up your wardrobe with accessories. As jewelers, we see an increasing trend in customers searching out brightly colored jewelry, including brightly colored gemstones. Consider a custom design piece of jewelry packed with color, for instance. That alone can take a so-so outfit to a sensational outfit.
So dare to add some color to your accessory world. Just a splash of it goes a long way!
