As much as I think I love color, I find myself automatically putting together mostly monochromatic outfits lately — black, shades of gray, boring neutrals, etc. I don’t know if it’s just the dreary weather that has me in this seriously dull colorless slump, but I’ve been looking for ways to gradually colorize my style for spring in a way that’s not too drastic and helps me transition seamlessly from winter to spring. Aside from the obvious pops of color like bright shoes or a vibrant handbag, colorful jewelry like stackable bangles is also a fun, easy way to add some spring flair to an otherwise more muted ensemble. Go nu rave inspired with a neon bangle set like these stackable enamel bracelets by Jules Smith or this more budget-friendly interlocking set from Forever 21. If you’re a fan of sparkle like I am, you’ll love these Kate Spade ‘Sugar Coat’ Bangles. To make a statement with a single eye-catching piece, I also adore this Ben Amun Technicolor bracelet. Coordinate with other colorful key accessories, or let the bold contrast speak for itself by keeping the rest of your outfit understated!
