I’m really hoping to continue to have fun with fashion and further develop a signature style in the new year. One of the things I’m trying to do is to incorporate more color into my wardrobe instead of the all black pairings I frequently sport.
Of course, I’m playing with what looks good with my skin and hair, what I’m comfortable in, what I already have a lot to match and what I can make a wardrobe out of, so it’s a lot of trial and error right now. For those of you who might share this new years “resolution” with me, here are a few of my favorite Gwynnie Bee new arrivals that I’m experimenting with!
I loved this plus size cardigan from INC (aka International Concepts, a line from Macy’s that comes in both plus and misses). It had just enough black that I was still in my comfort zone, and it was perfect for work, but unfortunately I added a size too small, so you don’t get to see it on.
I actually tried the yellow Angel Ribbons Star top back in December, because I love zippers and yellow is usually a good color for me. I wore it out for a family dinner with leggings and boots and everyone loved it, but I felt like a circus tent. It was a little loose and baggy, a little bright, and a little more patterned than I’m used to.
This is where I found my color vibe! I loved this paired with black pants. It didn’t feel too dramatic, but liked the flair of the bold green color, the jeweled collar, the classic fit and the incredibly comfortable knit. It was the perfect top to wear when I had to travel into one of my offices with a classic black tote like this Steve Madden and a pair of black flats with hints of gold for fun. I found a pair at TJ Maxx for a great price, but these Nine West flats are pretty sweet.
Stay tuned – I’ve got more coming for those of you who want to ease into color with accessories for under $50! And for those of you who want to try the tops above for FREE, don’t forget to take advantage of the extended 30-day trial membership offer at Gwynnie Bee.
