How to Add Color to a Neutral Outfit

You’ve just got to love neutral outfits! I know I do. They’re very classy and easy to wear and everything looks so well-put together. A lot of women these days opt for neutral outfits because they haven’t got the time to really plan out and color coordinate another outfit. However, the downside to this is that neutral outfits tend to look too plain and boring at times. Here are some ways on how to add color to a neutral outfit to shake things up every once in a while:

  • Accessorize with a bold and colorful statement necklace – this is one of the simplest and easiest things you can do but it’s also one of the best ways to add color to a neutral outfit. Although it would be classy to wear a necklace in one striking bold color, don’t shy away from a good statement necklace with lots of color on it, the neutral colors on your outfit should balance it out quite nicely.
