Boosting Your Clothing Basics

Every woman has a few basics in their closets: pants, dresses, jackets, blouses and t-shirts, all in neutral colors. So how do you add a little pop to your style while still maintaining a classic or business-like style? All you have to do is consider adding a few new pieces to your wardrobe.

A Statement Jacket If you like wearing a lot of neutrals, pairing these tans, blues and blacks with a statement jacket can be a great way to get a new look out of your old clothes. You can choose just about anything from a brightly colored tailored suit jacket to womens motorcycle jackets for an edgy look. Jackets are a great way to ease into bold choices because they can be removed at any point with eases.

Bringing in Patterns A bold pattern can set you apart from the crowd, while still utilizing all the neutral options in your closet. A bright floral, wide stripe or unconventional pattern may be the piece that helps you better express your person style. Patterns work best in blouses or skirts so that you can keep the rest of the look as toned down as you want.

An Array of Accessories If you are feeling unsure about adding something bold to your closet, you can always offset a neutral outfit by pairing it with some great accessories. You can bring in color and a new style with items such as jewelry, scarves, bags and sunglasses. The best part about changing your style with accessories is that you can find affordable options that will give you the ability to try a wide range of looks, from sparkly and flirty to bright and bold.

Changing your style can be scary at first, but with the right attitude, you can find the new pieces you will love and the ones that will help you express the beauty you are.
