Winter Brights - how to incorporate colour into your winter wardrobe

As the mercury drops and winter descends upon us, it's tempting to slip into a monotonous routine of dark and muted tones. But the LükBook team loves bright, bold colours so this simply won't do. Here are our top tips to give yourself a boost of dopamine by infusing your winter wardrobe with vibrant pops of colour:

TIP 1: Pick your palette -include rich and jewel-toned hues

With pastels and neons often associated with the warmer months, winter provides the ideal opportunity to explore a different spectrum of colours. Think: rich and deep hues like emerald green, sapphire blue, ruby red, and amethyst purple. 

These jewel-toned shades add a touch of opulence and warmth to your winter wardrobe. They also pair beautifully with neutral shades like black, charcoal, and cream, allowing the colours to truly pop - did someone say *showstopper*?

TIP 2 - Start small - layer with colourful accessories

Head-to-toe colour can be a lot, especially if you typically gravitate towards muted or neutral tones. 

Ease in with accessories like jewellery, scarves, gloves, hats, stockings and socks in bold and contrasting shades to create visual interest. A couple of our favourites: an emerald green scarf over a navy coat, or a fuchsia felt hat to elevate an otherwise muted ensemble. 

TIP 3 - Experiment with colour blocking

Once you've gotten comfortable with adding pops of colour via your accessories, it's time to level up to colour blocking! What is that, you well may ask. Colour blocking is a playful and modern technique that involves combining different solid colours in one outfit. 

Need some inspiration to get your started? Try an orange sweater dress with a teal scarf, or a cobalt blue sweater with red pants. 

To maintain balance, consider adding neutral accessories or garments to anchor the vibrant colours. Think: a camel coloured boot, or a grey scarf. This technique not only adds excitement to your winter wardrobe but also allows you to showcase your individuality.

TIP 4 - Mix and match textures

Incorporating a variety of textures can elevate your bright colour choices. Combine cosy knits, plush faux furs, and soft velvet fabrics in your outfit to create a visual and tactile feast. 

For instance, pair a vibrant orange sweater with a faux fur jacket or a bright red skirt with a chunky cable-knit sweater. The contrasting textures add depth and dimension, making your outfit visually intriguing. 

Winter doesn't have to be synonymous with muted and sombre tones. By incorporating bright colours into your winter wardrobe, you can bring a sense of vitality to even the gloomiest days. So, go ahead and infuse your winter outfits with a burst of colour and let your inner radiance shine through.
