30+ Ways to Brighten a Winter Wardrobe

Everything outside is dull and dreary (including the all black wardrobes most New Yorkers wear in winter!), and I’ve been itching for spring weather. Sadly, that’s quite a long way off judging by the single digit weather we’ve had here.

In the meantime, I’m trying to revive my closet a bit. A little color here and there is my favorite way to ward off the winter doldrums at this time of year!

Are you trying to brighten a winter wardrobe, too? Here are some tips that have worked for me:

  • Choose pieces that can be worn now and into spring, too.
  • Pair bright, springy colors with winter neutrals like black and grey.
  • Make lighter spring clothes work now by adding lots of layers.
  • Add color to your makeup routine and brighten up your complexion.
  • Cheer yourself up with hidden color in clothes linings, socks, or even lingerie!
  • Do something super fun, like adding a fake floral tattoo to the inside of your wrist.
  • Add a pop of color the easy way … with your accessories!
  • Take an inexpensive weekend getaway and pack a bright and cheery bag.
