5 Things You Need to Stop Buying in Black

You probably have enough black in your wardrobe already, so it’s time to lighten up. If you’re not a fan of bold colors, wear them with neutrals to start, then go color-on-color crazy as you get more comfortable. So, keep on reading for the 5 things you need to stop buying in black, so you’ll make your dressing more fun.

  1. Office Pumps

A conservative pair of pumps doesn’t have to be black to be office-appropriate, especially if you’re working in a creative or casual workplace. Shoes are the perfect place to start incorporating a little animal print into your work wardrobe and light neutrals like pink, purple, and cobalt blue can look creative without being flashy. Like fashion blogger Kristina Bazan, think of a pair of lavender pumps that can spice up with a neutral outfit.

  1. Handbags and Evening Clutches

A trendy handbag or evening clutch can easily transition from work to the weekend. Neon shades and jewel tones can be versatile too, especially in a clean, conservative shape, opening up a whole new world of work-to-weekend dressing. Like fashion blogger Sydne Summer, add some pop of color to your casual office outfit with a green bag and contrast it with a pair of yellow heels. You may also go for sparkly accents like metallic gold and silver that go well with everything and more glamorous than muted neutrals.

  1. Leather Jackets

A black leather jacket is edgy, but pastels and bold hues can also go great with everything from denim, to bright colors. Like fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur, opt for a red or orange leather jacket that can spice up your denim outfit on your casual weekends. Bold colored leather jacket is the perfect combination of hard-edged outfits, as well as soft ones which is great for balancing girly trends.

  1. Blazers

The sharp, clean lines of a classic blazer look even better with a bold color. If you’re looking for a more feminine style, opt for pastel colored blazers that can go well with your floral print trousers, feminine dresses, and flirty skirts. If you’re not a fan of pastel hues, think of classic shades like burgundy, cobalt blue, ruby red, amethyst purple and such that look elegant and chic.

  1. Straight Leg Pants

Printed or colorful pants can be as work-appropriate as the same pants in black, but it’s a lot more fun. However, keep the rest of your outfit simple and clean for the office. Like fashion blogger Kristina Bazan, you may opt for a pair of orange pants teamed with your striped button-down shirt and nude heels. By incorporating these basic yet colorful pieces into your style, you’ll have a more vibrant look anywhere you go.
