I was cleaning out my closet for the summer and realized that I have entirely too much black clothing. Seriously. It is my go-to and I love black because it is slimming, forgiving, goes with everything and I look great it in it. Black is the new Black, is my motto. However, I do realize that for warmer summer months, I really should explore more options.
Here is a snapshot of my closet right now. Ugh. Yeah. Too much black.
So, I started web window surfing and immediately bumped into some colorful accessories! What a great way to ease into wearing more color. Prada sells this tiny Saffiano Lux Double Zip Tote which is bright and structured and playful. I love boxy bags and this is a great in-between. Love. It’s way pricey so I had to se my sights lower.
I love love statement jewelry and statement rings in particular. And then Jay King Lemon-Lime and Blue Turquoise Sterling Silver Ring‘s popped in my feed one day and I was all ooooh and aaaaah. I could totally rock that and at $50, it is a total conversation piece. Lemon and Turquoise is a great color combo. Unexpected but fab. Swoon.
A great way to add color through accents are shades and I am loving Juicy Couture’s Script Aviator shades also I think I am way too own to wear those trendy crowns, a leftover trend from coachella, I still love seeing them on other people. For $7, you can get Bohemian Romance Flower Crown from Urban Outfitters.
If you’re creative, you can make your own. I do not wear much red but if I were to go bold, I’d totally pick up Donna Karan’s New York Double Layer Tube Skirt. It is a pencil skirt and I think pencil skirts are great for looking sophisticated and svelte. They’re a really hot skirt style.
Here are 7 things I’m loving as I sojourn to add color to my wardrobe. And I couldn’t resist but add a black wedge shoe in there! But espadrilles are on trend and great for Summer. Jo Espadrille Wedge Sandal With Rhodium is so rock and roll with those buckles.
