Start by wearing statement accessories to dress up your muted outfit.
If your wardrobe consists of mostly black and white pieces, try to make a statement outfit by wearing a catchy accessory. In the summer, you may spice up your summer whites with a colorful ombre bag like Samantha did, or wear red leather gloves with your black coat in the winter. Shoes, belt, necklace, or even an umbrella can really add some flair to your neutral outfits without looking flashy. Just go for ones that suit your personality and you’re comfortable wearing.
Incorporate bright colors to your basic wardrobe.
You don’t have to wear head-to-toe neon of you wish to create a statement look. Though you may think of wearing unexpected color combinations on your outfit, you may start with one or two bold colors that will add some pop to your style. Classy and luxurious, jewel tones like cobalt blue, ruby red, amethyst purple, and emerald green can give you enough pop of color without looking flashy on your street style. Start by wearing them with your neutral shades then feel free to wear them with brighter shades as long as you feel comfortable and stylish in them.
Take advantage of artistic and quirky prints.
Skip those simple prints like stripes and polka dots if you wish for a statement look as every woman might be wearing these patterns especially in the summer season. Like Samantha, you may opt for a matching set with striking floral prints matched with gladiator sandals or an abstract print top worn with a skirt which can be unique and eye-catching. Also, think of abstract prints, novelty patterns, art-inspired prints, geometric patterns and such that can turn heads without much effort.
Head-to-toe neutrals can still make a statement outfit.
If you’re a minimalist type of person who doesn’t love bright colors and flashy prints, remember that you can still create statement looks from your favorite neutral pieces. The key is to create interest on your outfit’s structure and texture, as well as incorporating some muted prints that will give your muted pieces some dimension. Whether you wish to dress for the season or for the occasion, always keep the balance on your outfit like Samantha always does. Like her, think of wearing your structured pieces with lightweight ones and flared pieces with fitted ones.
