Versatile Accent Colors for Your Capsule Wardrobe

Unless you’re a minimalist french chic queen, which I sure as hell am not, neutral colors are the oatmeal of your wardrobe. That is to say some people like them- I don’t- and can be made much better with some added extras. If you work on a capsule wardrobe accent colors can be the saving grace for your wardrobe sanity.

Blush Pink

Simple, feminine, elegant: blush is a totally versatile color. No, like seriously. If you wear it wrong (or right I guess? it’s subjective) you can look like a toddler. Or you can look like a professional. Blush pink pieces are sleek, versatile and often very professional.

Golden Yellow

I’ve always loved the color yellow. Happy, cheerful, reminds you of a good day. Some shades look rather tacky if worn wrong, but golden yellow is a perfect color. It’s right between a warm brown and a too happy yellow- happy, harvesty a bit motherly. It always makes me think of Demeter, you know? Out of all the yellow colors, I’d recommend this one as the most versatile.

Poppy Red

A bold, preppy and a rather chic color, poppy red is a classic you can’t really go wrong with. Unless you like more of a subtle color, then I’d recommend blush pink. Truly though red is a stunning and attention-grabbing color for those of you who like the spotlight just a bit more.
