How to keep your winter wardrobe bright

It is officially cold in Boston. I can no longer stand to walk around in cute, light outerwear but I’m huddled into a giant sleeping bag of a coat with giant boots covering my legs. The only pop of excitement in my outfit these days is a scarf.

When it gets cold, it’s hard for me to think about dressing in bold colors. I start to go for the black wool, cashmere or really anything soft with some sort of insulation!

While it’s always sophisticated to dress in all black, I try to keep these outfits fresh by adding different scarves and shoes to make a statement. I love a bright scarf or a bold pattern like the leopard above to make the outfit my own.

Fall fashion means bold colors and popped colors in my world. Pairing shorts with a button down or longer top in the fall helps to extend the life of your shorts. These shorts are perfect for a fall day with their bold color and scalloped edges. A heavier button down or sweater would help this outfit last all day from the morning to the cooler night. It’s also an outfit that can seamlessly transition from day to night if you are going from a brunch to dinner during the weekend.
