How to Look Brighter on Dull Winter Days

We all find the winter too long, too dark, and too boring sometimes. We miss the natural light and the colors surrounding us. If you would like to instantly improve your mood and make people smile or simply turn heads, you will need to change your looks and use color to your advantage. This is the time when it is OK to be brave and daring. Below you will find a few tips on how to spruce up your looks for the winter.


Wearing accessories is a good way of making your looks appear more designed and planned. From a coat to a collar, oversized statement bijou jewelry and watch, there are several ways you can make people want to find out more about you and stay close to you. Use patterns in a smart way and draw the eye to your contrast-enhancing jewelry or accessories.

Add a New Hair Color

Of course, one of the ways you can appear more vibrant and colorful is matching your hair color to your makeup and your outfit, personal style. Use shades of green, red, and orange to create that perfect look and use the same colors in your makeup. You don’t have to permanently dye your hair, if you don’t want to. There are plenty of semi-permanent and wash-out hair colors that will not damage your hair or scalp.

Funky Boots

No matter if you are wearing a shift dress or jeans, you can make your look appear more interesting if you choose funky boots. Choose a cowboy boot with a matching hat, and you are set to make a statement, no matter who you will meet next. Check out straw cowboy hats for sale and create that 80s look paired with leather and studs.

Scarves and Ponchos

If you find it hard to make the most out of your looks in the winter and would like to avoid wearing hoodies to stay warm, you can use custom scarves and ponchos to improve your layers and looks. A colorful knitted scarf will help you stay warm but also make your appearance look more unique and sophisticated than simply throwing on a jumper and a pair of jeans.

Knitted Colorful Tights

If you are a fan of boots and shoes, you might want to make the most out of their style by wearing knitted, colorful, or patterned tights with various outfits. There are plenty of styles and designs to choose from; from the elegant checkered ones in black and white to the playful rock chick style with tattoo pattern or abstract illustration. You can wear these with a leather skirt, a shift dress, or even a knitted skater dress.

If you would like to make your personal style less dull this winter, you will have to make the most out of the colors and their unique combinations. Find your shade and use it when planning your outfit for a photo shoot, meeting friends, or even attending a party.
