Mix and Match: Brights and Bold Prints

Black, grey, navy…I’m so over winter and the darker hues so popular during this season. I perked up recently when I saw that spring styles were arriving in my favorite stores. Hello spring color! I was so energized by the sight of brights. Why wait for spring, then, to wear brighter colors? I’m going to try to add a pop of color to my looks this winter.

In today’s post, a yellow silky sweater adds a little pep to a stripe dress. In lieu of a winter hat, I’m wearing a head wrap that features thick bars with printed etchings.

    Fabulous! Love this look! I just ordered a headwrap/turban the other day and this is great inspiration.

      That's so cool, Elle! I'm really digging head wraps lately.
