Hello my loves and welcome back to my blog! I hope you are all having an amazing week 🙂
I know adding in different colours, prints and textures into your style can be scary and intimidating however it doesn’t have to be! There are many ways in which we can add in different colours and textures into our everyday style – mixing in with what you’re comfortable with!
I personally am very much a monochrome lover. I love my clothes to be simple, plain and oversized and most importantly, black or white. This is just what I am comfortable in, however, this year I made a vow to myself to try to change up my image, incorporate new styles – including adding in colourful items and new textures. This post is my simple steps that you can take to gradually add in new colours and prints into your style.
Okay, lets jump in with my simple steps:
I truly believe that makeup is one of the easiest ways to add in colour to your look. I have been looking for colourful eyeshadow pallets for a while and finally came across these in Superdrug.
These are by Makeup Revolution – admittedly I am yet to try them however, they just look incredible. An easy way to add in these bold colours is by creating a colourful yet easy eyeshadow look. I have a blog post up on a valentines makeup look that is extremely pink – however, it felt so comfortable and its so wearable! Another way could be just introducing one new colour at a time, adding a new colour to the lower lash line or creating a winged liner out of a bright eyeshadow. It adds a little something different to your makeup look and you’d be surprised at how wearable you can make these bright colours look!!
Another great way to stretch out of your comfort zone without throwing yourself straight into the deep end. Accessories can be classed as anything, from; earrings and necklaces to hair ties and hair grips. These little steps can easily take a look from a basic, to a colourful new look.
You guys know I have a huge obsession with buying handbags, I can’t help myself. I spend way too much time browsing TKMaxx looking for the next handbag bargain. The majority of the time I leave the store with not 1 but 2 bags… yeah I know its a problem.
Handbags make me happy and I find that they are such a great way to add in a new texture/colour/pattern into my outfit. The trends that have been going through the shops at the moment are just fabulous for this! Leopard print is at its finest!!! Here are a few images of the bags I have been using lately to add a new style to my all black outfits….
I didn’t know which category to put these items in but I had to throw them in because they are still staple pieces that can change up any outfit!
Let’s talk socks, I love socks, funky socks have been calling to me lately and I couldn’t help but give in to the little screams that were saying “buy me, buy me, buy me” so what did I do? Of course I bought them! Socks are those items in your outfit that you don’t tend to think about as much… you just stick on any socks and hide them in your shoes anyway… However, recently I have been loving that style where you have skinny jeans and your socks pulled up so you can see them out of your shoes. With this style, you can easily incorporate new and funky socks into the outfit; like the ones in the images below!
As well as socks, you also have the option of shoes and general clothing – trainers are my thing. I spend a lot of money on handbags and trainers. They are my weakness and I am more than happy to give into it whenever I can!
And there we have it! Several ways to add a pop of colour or print into your everyday style. I hope you guys found some inspo in today’s post! If you have any other ways of adding in colours and prints into your wardrobe please leave them in the comments!
