1. Add Color – When cloudy skies and cold temps are still trending, the easiest way to energize your #ootd is by bringing in some color! Pink of course is our very favorite statement maker. It goes well with all skin tones and provides a chic vibe that effortlessly elevates your outfit. The shade of pink in this adorable ruffle blouse and scarf are exactly what we have in mind. If you love this blouse but prefer blue to pink, then you will love this option here.
2. Add Floral – Another easy way to brighten your transitional winter outfit is with adding prints like floral in to the mix. This bold yet soft “painterly print” floral pattern is the perfect statement maker. It’s also available in the Dillon fit blouse and an oh so cute zip pouch. So many opportunities for mixing and matching! If you are a scarf lover like we are, then you definitely can’t pass up this super soft scarf Whitney is wearing. It’s even on sale for $40 today too!
3. Add a statement lip – When it comes to lipstick or gloss, we always say brighter is better! After selecting your go to colorful blouse or accessory, it’s time to pucker up! Pink lipstick is so flattering on all skin tones and we find it pulls together an outfit in seconds. While clothing is the first step, we never leave home without a pink lip.
Thank you so much for stopping by today to learn about our easy ideas for adding some instant brightness to your look. Just because cold temps will be around for a while, it doesn’t mean your outfit can’t be full of spunk! Make sure to shop all the gorgeous new pre-spring arrivals at Banana Republic here.
