How to Add Color to Your Winter Wardrobe

You ask, I listen! Fashion was one of the top topics you wanted to see more of, according to the reader survey, and I’m REALLY excited to make that happen! I have a confession though: I hate dressing myself in winter. I find it very hard to find winter clothes that fit my colorful, pattern-filled style. Everything always seems to be neutrals and dark colors and BLAH… doesn’t work for me! I figured some of you who love a good dose of color might feel the same so I decided to bring in the experts! I teamed up with my pal Jen Pinkston, fashion blogger and wardrobe stylist, to help me find some pieces to brighten up my winter wardrobe. I am SO excited about what she found, and how the pieces paired easily with items I already have. So today, I have 4 fun outfits, plus a bonus dose of colorful coats, to get your cold weather clothes looking a little more bright!

I told Jen one of the hardest things for me to find was a cute, colorful coat. Luckily, she didn’t have that same problem and brought options….

I am SO excited for my new colorful pieces now that it’s…. 80 degrees again in LA. HA! They did come in handy on my NYC trip though, and when LA decides to have it’s second bout of “winter” I’m gonna layer ’em all on. A HUGE thank you to Jen for helping me play dress up for the day.
