Accessorize With BRIGHTS

6 Nov

Wanna have some fun?

We all know how it is to put together a super cute outfit that ends up looking a little blah because of all its earthy tones. If you’re like me you wear a lot of black, navy, grey, white, brown, and other muted earthy tones –and that’s probably because it’s just the majority of what’s in your closet. Now, instead of going on a 500$ shopping spree and buying all new bright clothes (which is great if you can afford it, but most of us cannot), or waiting 6 months to accumulate new bright articles of clothing with each new shopping trip, you can do something even better (and cheaper)! Just add bright accessories!

Spoiler Alert: It’s SIMPLE to take your outfit from drab to fab just by adding bright accessories (and faster and cheaper as well!).

Bright accessories just add that extra POP you’re looking for, and it’s just one of those simple stylist secrets to looking amazing.

Here are some of the many ways for bright colors to show up in your outfit:


Adding bright earrings, necklaces, and rings to any number of outfits to give it a new spin.

.:Head gear:.

The bandana is probably one of my new favorite things. It’s perfect for a bad hair day, or for just adding some extra color and flair to an every day look.

Note: Taylor Swift’s hat makes her look pop so much more than Taylor Momsen’s!

Here’s another bandana look that I love. Hair down or up, it’s a win every time.

Bright hats just have this ability to turn one outfit into something completely different in 3 seconds.


Bright purses are just another simple way to add color to your outfit. Purses are in GRAND supply at Plato’s Closet. Hit it up ladies.

.:The art of shoes:.

Check out these runway examples!

Shoes are an art, in my opinion. They come in so many styles and colors. Visit the nearest Goodwill or Plato’s and you’ll find so many amazing pairs of shoes for very little $. Also, they will be more one of a kind since they are probably not sold in stores any more!


GREAT NEWS! I went to Goodwill last week and bought 4 belts for 8$. Also, all the old retro colored belts are in there just hanging out since your mom’s friends finally got rid of them. You should stop in.


It’s Fall ladies! A scarf can be both useful and adorable! Walmart has brightly colored scarves for 5$, and they’re sold in abundance at resale shops for very little $.


The simplest and cheapest trick of all? Nails and makeup!

Just adding bright fingernail polish or bright lipstick can absolutely add another element to a boring outfit. Graci and I have fallen in LOVE with red lipstick, and bright nail polish is also high on our list of favorites. Have fun with these ladies. It’s a fast, classy, and adorable way to give your look that extra little oomph.

Be yourself, always.
