How to add a pop of color to your Winter (Black) Wardrobe

1. Make Up
        a. The easiest way to add pops of color to your look is simply to add color to your face. Whether it’s a bright pink lipstick or a bold blue eyeliner, or coral blush or turquoise eyeshadow, a little bit of colorful makeup goes a long way, especially when the rest of you is draped in head-to-toe black.

2. Accessories
    a. Adding a colorful accessory, such as a belt or a scarf. Usually, I will decide on an accent color, like red or purple, and then I will pick out an item or two in that color to top off my all-black ensemble. For example, I might coordinate a red belt and a red necklace with a black dress, or I might throw on a scarf that has a purple print and wear a violet-toned lip stain.

3. Hosiery
    a. Change it up a little by wearing colorful tights. Or a fun patterned leggings.

4. Manicure
    a. A bright mani really stands out against a backdrop of all black clothing. Even if you don’t paint all of your nails with bright colors, an accent nail or two can add a little dose of liveliness to your monochromatic outfit.

5. Prints/Patterns
    a. Look for an article of clothing that has a base of black with some sort of interesting colorful print on it, and then layering it with your other black pieces.
