If you feel a little down during the winter months, you’re not alone. Many people suffer from the cold-weather blues. Luckily, there are a number of things you can do to keep yourself feeling great when it’s gloomy out. Along with regular exercise, a healthy diet, and plenty of vitamin D, wearing bright colors has also been shown to improve mood. Winter means layers, and with a lot of layers, you’ll have plenty of room for creativity!
Bright Winter Colors to Love
Not only do bright colors cheer you up, but they also allow you to express your personal style all year long. Your outfit is a blank canvas, and your color and accessory choices are your paint. Having simple and well-made clothes in your wardrobe will give you tons of style options for years to come. Here are a few fun color options to explore!
Forest Greens & Bright Purples
What better color to represent the cold months than the shade of the evergreen tree? Warm it up with brown and golds or cool it down with navy blues and grays. Forest green and bright purple make a fun and unexpected combination, so try a green sweatshirt with the Purple Ladies Mini Rib Crew Tee, tying the sweatshirt around your waist or shoulders when inside. If you’re aiming for a more natural look, stick to natural tones and earthy accessories like wooden bracelets or pendants.
Ruby Reds & Golds
Ruby reds make a bold statement that’s perfect for the holiday season. Mix reds with other bright colors for a look-at-me effect, or combine them with a neutral gray or black for subtler style. Red and green is a classic holiday combination, so pair a green sweatshirt with red fleece pants or a red t-shirt, like this Perfect Weight® Men’s V-neck Tee, with a green jacket. Red and gold also go perfectly together, so don’t forget some shimmering accessories, like earrings or a nice men’s watch.
Black goes with anything, which makes black items that can be layered a great part of your wardrobe all year round. Layer a black sweater, like this Mini Stripe Full-zip Hoodie, over a green sweatshirt for a pop of color that will keep you warm and brighten your day. This hoodie is made from super-soft cotton blend in a yarn dye. Don’t forget a gray hat and gloves to complete your look.
