Ever since I moved to Boston, I’m not going to lie, It’s been a bit hard to style looks because I’m new to dressing in this insanely cold weather. Right now my main priorities when it comes to dressing are the obvious, to stay warm, stay comfortable and try not to bore myself with the same looks. I do tend to get pretty comfortable wearing all blacks and neutrals, but today I’m switching things up a little bit. I want to inspire you to add color to your dull winter wardrobe in 3 easy ways:

1. Start with a bold coat like this cobalt one. It doesn’t matter if you are wearing all black underneath, the pop of color is going to transform the whole look and take it from boring to daring.

2. Add color by wearing some boots like this pair I wore in one of my favorites posts. Burgundy is a great color to wear during the winter months. It looks so chic and fashion-forward.

3. Wear a bright lip. You guys know I’m a fan of wearing red lips because it can really transform any look during any season. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve doubted a outfit, then I added the red lips and suddenly loved the outfit. Here’s an example.

How do you add color to your winter wardrobe? Let me know in the comments section below.


Desde que me mude a Boston, no voy a mentir, me ha costado vestirme un poco ya que nunca me he tenido que vestir para este tipo de clima tan frío. Ahorita mismo mis prioridades son:mantenerme caliente, cómoda y tratar de no aburrirme con el mismo tipo de looks. En el invierno tiendo a acostumbrarme a vestirme con muchos colores oscuros y neutrales pero hoy los quiero inspirar a darle un toque de color a tus vestuario de invierno de 3 maneras:

1. Empieza con un abrigo de un color vivo, como este en color cobalto que tengo puesto. No importa si te vistes toda de negro, el toque de color va a transformar el look de uno aburrido a uno atrevido.

2. Añade color usando unas botas como estas que usé en unos de mis posts favoritos. El rojo vino es un buen color para usar en la temporada de invierno.

3. Usa un labial de color. Ya saben que a mi me gusta mucho usar un lipstick de color rojo porque me encanta como transforma cualquier look durante cualquier temporada.  En este look de invierno me puse un lipstick rojo.

Como añades color a tu vestuario de invierno?

  • Hola Pam!!! Que tal??? Pues como ya tu también sabes, esas botas me fascinan! Sinceramente mis favoritas y las mas cómodas que he tratado. Estoy considerando conseguirlas también negras. Me fascina come quedan y se ven. Te comprendo en cuanto al frio… you no lo aguanto muy bien. Es aquí en la Florida y siempre tengo frio!!! Me fascina el abrigo Azul cobalto. Le dá mucha vida al look. Muy creativa manera de añadir color y vida a cualquier look. Yo añado color a mis looks añadiendo un bolso llamativo o unos zapatos de cualquier color brillante. Ando buscando unos tipo stiletto de color Amarillo neon pero no los he encontrado todavía. Que crees? Bueno amiguita, cuidate mucho y mantente calientita:-) Besos y te envío mucho amor y energía positive. Jeannette

  • I felt the same way after I moved here from Florida!! You look gorgeous and I’m dying over those boots! xo, Biana – BlovedBoston
