Pick a scheme

If wearing bright colors is something new for you, then pick a color scheme this fall and stick to it. Choose the color you're interested in, and then keep your look monochromatic, working to mix and match the different color hues. This will keep things simple and give you more room in your wardrobe to mix and match items.

In the details

The best way to incorporate new colors into your wardrobe is to add them in as little details. Leave your ensemble neutral and add in bold colors with accessories such as tights, clutches or bright studs. The pieces are simple enough, but your effort will be noticed when it's put together so well.

Make a statement

Let your bold color do its job and make a statement by wearing it in a new way. Bold tights are the best way to keep your legs cozy while jazzing up that simple black dress from last season. Look for pieces that will catch everyone's eye and surely keep you in the spotlight.
