Look We Love: Citrus Accents!

The world can be a very gray place sometimes, especially in the chilly winter months.  Something about the dropped temperatures and cloudy skies can impact our moods when it comes to our fashion color palette.  So once in a while we like to say, "Bring on the color!"

Citrus colors have an instantaneous way of bringing life to what may have been a rather typical, fade into the background sort of ensemble.  And it doesn't take much to pack a powerful punch!

We love the look above with the tangerine leggings (color of the year and growing in popularity) paired under the gray sweat top and stripped tank under shirt.  Gray and orange are a never-fail color combo and can be worked in a variety of ways.  And best of all, orange hues have powerful mood boosting elements that create a sense of warmth and energy.  Try it on Mondays and you'll see what I'm talking about!

And if  the leggings are just a little too much pop for your taste buds, wear a pair of skinny jeans and add a bold splash of color with just the orange scarf.  That not only livens up the look, but brings much warranted attention to your smiling face, and who doesn't like that?

And for the truly fashion forward at heart, work both the leggings and the scarf together to create balance and the ultimate pizazz!

What do you think?
