When you think about winter colors, usually you think about deep reds, greens and black. There are other colors to wear to break things up a bit, like yellow and fuchsia.
Last winter, I talked about wearing florals in the winter in a post. Always the rebel, I like to sometimes wear more color in the winter. I do this for a couple of reasons. First, the winter weather can bring your mood down. So, wearing brighter colors is an instant mood booster. Second, I wear color just to be unique (why not, right).

Yellow is that one color that I love when the shade is right. Also, it is the color that I don’t find enough of in the stores. I rarely sell my yellow clothing items since it is such a fun color.
Find Your Shade of Yellow
Not all yellows are created equal. Find the shade of yellow that works for your skin tone. For example, I like this marigold yellow. I usually gravitate towards cool shades of yellow. I stay away from more earth tone yellows like mustard. That color doesn’t work for me as well.

The Feeling Factor
The Intersection Between Style & Psychology
Both of these colors symbolize energy. They are bold and vibrant. Fuchsia brings with it a feminine and confident energy. Yellow conveys optimism and happiness. Therefore, it’s hard to be in a bad mood when you wear these colors. You can just add a pop of color or go all in with these two colors.

Siempre rebelde, a veces me gusta usar más color en invierno. Hago esto por un par de razones. Primero, el clima invernal puede deprimir tu estado de ánimo. Por lo tanto, usar colores más brillantes es puede cambiar tu estado de ánimo. En segundo lugar, uso el color solo para ser diferente (por qué no, correcto).
Another color I’m going to bust out this winter is Fuchsia. The thing with Fuchsia is that I don’t own much of it. This color sits right between pink and purple on the color wheel.

It’s one of those colors that I admired on others. However, I usually don’t find items for myself in that color. Cue this dress! What I like about this dress is that I can layer it with a blazer. Also, it’s one of my favorite necklines, a tie neck!
