Here’s How to Take Your Winter Neutrals to the Next Level

There’s nothing more head turning than a flash of color on a palette of black or gray. Sure, a black outfit is always easy, and almost always elegant, but black is safe. Fashion is bold. Add a stroke of color to those neutral outfit choices, and you’ll see a huge difference!

Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize! And it’s easy for us hijabis to accessorize because what better an accessory than a nice bold hijab? Neon colors are always so fun to play with against a black outfit because they stand out so brightly! So find a bright hijab–plain or patterned–and stray away from a black on black hijab choice once in a while!

Match your hijab and your purse together for a nice, drawn together look!

A bold lip is my absolute favorite makeup choice ever. You can check out some of my favorite bold lip choices here.

Matching your color schemes will better draw out the concept of pop of color. You don’t have to go for the bold lip if you aren’t a fan, however! Color-coordinating your accessories is enough to draw the eye from the black of your outfit.

Make sure that when you work the “pop of color” look, you wear either black or gray. These colors are already so devoid of color, they need those supporting flashes that you can give with your accessories. Neon would not stand out as much against a white canvas, of course. So when you’re picking your outfit, choose DARK.

Of course, you don’t have to go for neon colors, though I think they are the most fun to play with!

Find your favorite color, and work it.
