If you’re ready to brighten up your style and add some cheery vibes to your outfits, then this post will be perfect for you! I’ve put together five easy ways to expand your color palette and make any outfit pop.

1.Style your neutral outfits with colorful jewelry

Choose a piece of colorful jewelry that you love, like color-pop statement earrings.  Tassel earrings are a huge hit right now, and they are a fantastic way to add interest to an outfit without overpowering.

2. Add a colorful bag and matching shoes to your neutral, casual outfits.

Pairing a colorful yet casual bag and sandals with your neutral basics can make you look very pulled together and ready for a relaxing day out. These handmade bags and handmade shoes are the perfect way to elevate an everyday look.

3.Update a handbag with a colorful strap

These colorful handmade bag straps can not only add a little spice to your outfit, but they are also soft on your shoulder and often more comfortable than a traditional leather bag strap. Comfort, colorful and stylish! That’s definitely a win!

 4. Style your favorite neutrals with a colorfully patterned handbag or clutch.

A single colorful crochet style bag like the one pictured here could easily be paired with neutrals such as navy, white, beige, blush, or even black. Use one of the more neutral colors in the colorful style bag as inspiration to pull together a look from pieces you already own and love.

5. Add a statement scarf

A scarf always adds an element of personality and fun to an outfit. Plus, the options are endless when it comes to how to style a scarf! One colorful scarf can give you multiple variations and options for switching up your look and automatically elevates your wardrobe making you look like you put in more time and effort than you did. Colorful scarves for the win!
