How Do YOU Incorporate COLOR Into Your Look?

How do  you incorporate color into your look?

My favorite color is black.

You will often meet me and I will be draped in all black.

THINK Ally Sheedy's "Breakfast Club" character Allison Reynolds and you will know who I was in high school.

As I matured, my taste matured. It is a weeebit classier, but still all black.

I will say, I have learned to dash in a bit of color every now and again to accentuate the occasion.

My idea of "splash of color" on a typical work day, may mean something urbane like a studded bobby pin, a vibrant coral blue necklace, or a sheer bright red scarf.

It can also mean throwing on a shocking lime green trench, or a pair of pink boots!

    Jewelry is a great way to add color, especially with black clothes as a "background". And purses, too, also can add "pop". And I loved Ally Sheedy in that movie!

    I let my highlights take on the color ;) I've fallen a victim of the black as well...must be a family thing!
