The reality of the cold sometimes results in official awareness days as it’s the case of “Blue Monday”, the third Monday of January. Indeed, today is recognized as the most depressing day of the year: it’s when New Year resolutions die, weather is bad, credit card bills from excessive holiday shopping start to arrive and there are still many more dark, cold days ahead.
But here at Lookiero, there is no room for gloom. We’re going to show you how to spice up your wardrobe with the help of our Personal Shoppers to turn the most miserable day of the year into the most stylish instead. Here are 8 bold and bright looks that will do just that!
- Wild & Fun
- Rocker Vibes
- Bold and Bright
- Subtle and Stylish
- Change up your bottom half
- Go Green
- Brighten it up
Bring out a little bit of your wild side! Try an animal print maxi skirt with a brown suede biker. It’s the perfect mix of edgy and wild, plus by adding a super trendy shoulder bag (like this one) you’ll achieve a stylish, street friendly and feminine look ready for anything.
This one is super easy to do! Swap the typical plain blouse for an animal print shirt, then wear a burgundy sweater on top, and finish it off with a black biker jacket. The result is a super powerful look that will beat blues of any kind! Do try it with flare jeans; they’re super comfy and stylish.
Dare to infuse your outfit with a dash of colour! Wear this jacket in vibrant orange with a khaki roll-neck jumper and a scarf in earth tones to balance out the chromatic palette. Throw on your favourite jeans and no Blue Monday will ever bring you down!
This is a more subtle way to do colour. A classic style like this one is easy to do with a navy blazer and a burnt red jumper that matches the print of the trousers. A sober and sharp look that is still incredibly stylish for the office (and the after office).
Don’t hesitate to experiment with other colours on the bottom half. For example, see how we paired a check blazer and a classic black jumper (a combo that can be worn with practically anything) with classic darted chinos in beige and added cute black shoulder bag. This look will take you places!
If you’re more of a fan of darker colours side, forest green is a great option for you. Try a knit dress, and then add a British double-breasted blazer and a shoulder bag for a very contemporary colour block effect, effortless elegance!
If you feel too much colour is not for you, go for of light hues instead. Try a jumper in off-white with a marbled coat in soft beige tones; we guarantee it will be very uplifting! For the bottom half, wear brown-waxed trousers to add a subtle shiny effect to the look. For the final touch, throw on a printed scarf that matches the colour palette of the outfit.
