3 Chic Ways to Wear More Color This Spring

PSA: it's officially March 1, which means spring is on the horizon and we need to prep our closets accordingly.

This season, it's time to finally incorporate color into your wardrobe. While we're always here for the all-black-everything aesthetic, we've come around to color this season. Nikki is serving up OOTD inspiration with three happy looks that will take her into spring.

Yes, You Can Master Yellow

We're here to debunk the myth that yellow is hard to pull off. The key is finding the right shade of yellow to match your sense of style–and once you do, you'll want to incorporate it in just one or two pieces at a time. Take inspiration from Nikki's outfit recipe by choosing a top and footwear in similar hues.

Our Minnie sweater is the perfect pale yellow to serve as a starting point. Complete the outfit with these slides from Sam Edelman, which are available in a coordinating shade. Don't be afraid to try a bolder, darker yellow too. This mustard sweater by ba&sh paired with these matching heels by Simon Miller are an elevated entry into the rich yellow style space.

Plaid Adds Color in a Subtle Way

Say hello to your colorful secret weapon: plaid. When you want to hint of color and a little extra style, a pattern or print component will never fail.

Choose your plaid piece wisely since it's the star of your outfit. Our Betsy ruffle top has shades of red, blue, and yellow all in one–with that many hues in your top, every other part of your look will happily play a supporting role. If you're looking for a pop of blue instead, shop this plaid top from Free People. A vibrant mask, like the multicolor selection from Jill and Ally, is the perfect finishing touch to complement your plaid. 

A Statement Jacket Is Your Go-To

Sometimes you just need one *major* component to completely transform an outfit. Enter: the statement jacket, a piece so gorgeous and detailed it combines both pops of color and eye-catching accents all in one.

Our Delphine fringe jacket packs in a rosy punch of color with playful fringe to make it even more striking. Another colorful way to spice up your look is with a textured jacket that has a serious cozy factor, like this pink teddy jacket from Free People. The holy grail of statement jackets is a floral printed, brightly colored design–this quilted version by Sea checks every box and then some. Once your statement piece is set, balance your look with neutral bottoms, like the Sydney pants in black and a classic pair of black flats.
