Warmer weather's on the way—it's time to trade your winter standbys for some lighter, brighter styles. When it comes to spring trends, comfort is still king, but color is right up there. We're sharing four ideas that'll help you bring some color into your closet and work it into your everyday look.
Build a Neutral Base
The first step in prepping your closet is to lighten up your layers, and neutrals are the ideal foundation for sunny-day style. Swap out your winter weights for easy-breathing fabrics like cotton, in colors like cream and tan.
Keep It Light
Put a little prep in your step with soft pastels. Light grey and pale pink are colors that look good on everyone, and they add an easy, sun-washed vibe to your warm-weather wardrobe. They work with any neutral but look especially fresh paired with warm browns.
Play with Patterns
Patterns are an easy way to play with color. You can add an artful mix or a single statement piece—either way, stick with one area of focus and let the rest act as backup. Here, the tie-dyed T-shirt enlivens an otherwise neutral outfit.
Add a Pop
Give your look an energy boost with a pop of bright color. A vibrant outer layer pulls your outfit together and takes your neutrals to the next level. Bright accessories and shoes are two other ways to achieve the effect, offering extra dimension with next to no effort.
