When to Add a Pop of Color with A Neckerchief

I like the look of a button-down chambray shirt with boyfriend jeans as a casual weekend look or even as a Casual Friday outfit. Such an outfit can quickly look blah when one would add neutral color shoes. One may get away with it still in summer, when the skin has a sun glow, and one adds colorful earrings. However, in fall, this shirt-jeans combination would make you look washed out. My standard styling trick is to add a colorful scarf when a pop of color is needed.

To keep an all neutral look interesting add a pop of color with a scarf or shoes. #agelessstyle Click To Tweet

Up Your Look with a Colorful Neckerchief

I am so happy that neckerchiefs are a thing again. : ) They are much easier to wear than a scarf as they are much shorter. Moreover, they are less expensive than a large square scarf, and also fulfill the purpose of adding a pop of color to an otherwise desaturated look. See this guide to learn more on how to up your style with scarves.

 

A Bright Bead Necklace Can Add Color

An alternative to adding a scarf or neckerchief for a pop of color are several necklaces with bright colored beads. Be aware that they may be a little bit too noisy when they bang each other whenever you look for some paperwork at work. While this styling trick may not be a great option for Casual Friday outfits, the colorful necklaces are great for a pop of color to a neutral color weekend look.

 

Pink Motorcycle Jacket for Outside

I also like to style outerwear (see the post at the link for a guide). In today’s outfit, I picked up the green and pink color of the gladiators with the bag and motorcycle jacket. It’s just the right amount of color to uplift the mood on a gray fall day. 😉

 

Stylist tip: Don’t fear a color leather jacket! You can get a lot of wear out of it. Need proof? See these 17 stunning looks with a pink leather jacket.
