In the middle of winter, on the coldest, shortest days, many of us have the tendency to go for the simplest, darkest items in our closets. We get it, but it’s actually dressing in color that will lift your mood and energize you for brighter days ahead. You dress your mood, so why not influence your mood with how you dress? Read on for some dressing inspiration — including KULE’s January drop — to put a rare February smile on your face 🌈🙂.
Styling to Boost Your Mood
Combat your February slump by dressing happy with something like a rainbow sweater or multicolor tee. Think of the colorful item as an automatic caffeine boost, which we think is best paired with something neutral. Try wearing your fresh, vibrant sweater with a pair of neutral trousers, or your joyful tee with dark denim. Your multicolor piece is suddenly as versatile as a neutral one. We tend to think that the most classic look is jeans and a tee, so do that, but with some color.
One of my personal favorite colorful winter styling hacks is wearing your multicolored tee or sweater with neutral pants/jacket, and then coordinating color with accessories (think: orange frames if your tee has orange in it, or a green hat if it has green in it, etc.). Having fun with the colors really unifies an outfit. It’s a winter styling formula that’s easy to switch up with simple accessory swaps.
Of course, if rainbow isn’t your thing, picking a color you love, to work into your wardrobe, is still a winter mood-boost (such as this luxurious berry-striped cashmere sweater 😍).
How to Shop for Some Winter Cheer
Choosing colorful pieces that still feel elevated, means choosing pieces that are statement but still chic, vibrant but not noisy, and most importantly, bring you joy, even on the coldest, most dreary winter days. Work some feel-good items into your wardrobe; from statement pieces (our cozy Holly sweater and best-selling rainbow tee, shown above), to accessories with which to finish off an outfit (scarves, jewelry, hats, a belt), from both KULE and other cheerful brands.
