Not the verbal accent.. the color accent!

Accent colors are commonly used to describe interior decor, and you might become more familiar with the strategy if I call it a ‘pop of color’. Was I right?

The formula is super easy. For starters, pick the color. In this look, I picked the color blue to add a little zest to my otherwise neutral outfit.

Next, simply repeat the color 2-3 times in the outfit. Mine are: 1. Sunglasses, 2. Clutch and 3. Heels.

(Other accessories that work are: jackets, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, lipsticks, nail polish and socks.)

The last step it to pair your chosen accessories with a neutral outfit and voila! You’ve got yourself an outfit that seems purposefully styled (even though this takes such little effort!)
