Liven Up Your Winter Wardrobe With Fantastic Colors

Are you interested in finding some outfits for yourself that will allow your look to really pop? In the current dreary climate it makes sense to want to stand out against a bland landscape and a wardrobe dominated by grays and blacks, but you want to do it right. Here are some great colors to add to your wardrobe to help you avoid the winter blues.


The latest fashion trends have this deep red color showing up everywhere. It's dark enough to fit in with the rest of the winter color pallet but still helps to add some character to your outfit choices. Consider adding a rich burgundy sweater to your wardrobe; it will make a beautiful outfit choice to go with jeans, black pants or skirts, so you can be sure you'll get plenty of wear out of this new item.

Burnt Orange

Initially, you might think twice about this color--after all Halloween's over. However, a few carefully chosen pieces can help add some true flair into your wardrobe. For example, a well-cut long-sleeved dress can look fantastic with a pair of black boots. Otherwise you might also want to consider a coat in this color. It will definitely help you stand out, and the right piece can also help you look completely on top of the latest fashion trends.

Dark Yellow

Along the same lines as orange, many budding fashionistas might hesitate at the thought as yellow isn't a color traditionally associated with winter. However, selecting the darker, mustard version can help you blend the traditional with the unique. This color can look great as a scarf draped around your neck, as a dress or even as a sweater. When paired with black it will actually look quite classy.

Dark Rose

Rose is a color that is frequently overlooked for winter because pink is so strongly associated with spring. Fortunately, the darker shades of this beautiful color have been strong across the fashion world this season. Rose can look great as a sweater, scarf or any other accent piece. It's a great color for boosting moods; who can feel sad while wearing pink?

Dark Blue

This stunning color is a great addition just about anywhere in your wardrobe. It will look fantastic as a skirt, sweater, hat, mittens, scarf or even jewelry. It's a perfect accent to the traditional grays and blacks associated with winter and can help liven up any outfit.


Although not strictly a color, leather has had a strong opening for the fall and winter seasons this year. In real or faux form, this material would be a great accent addition to your wardrobe as well, especially as an accent. Think about getting started with items such as your handbag or shoes!
Adding color to your wardrobe is an easy way to help raise your spirits and those of people around you. Winter was once associated with only dark, boring colors and shapeless outfits. Now we know this does not have to be the case. Get started adding some of these colors today!
