Injecting some colour into your winter wardrobe

winter wardrobe

The winter blues can easily get us down, thanks to colder weather and fewer hours of sunshine during the day. But instead of throwing in the towel and going with an all-black wardrobe, spend some time instead adding small amounts of colour into your ensemble. It’ll not only boost your points in the style stakes, but can also add a little bit of light to your day and help shake those winter blues. If you’re wondering where in the world to start, here are a few simple ideas.

Winter hats

Winter time is all about accessorizing to keep warm. These little touches are also the best way to add that much-needed splash of colour without it becoming overwhelming or taking over the entire outfit – and hats are a great place to start. They come in all sorts of styles and colours, so you can go wild and don a bright pink beanie with a pom-pom on top, or go for something more subdued like a deep red wool hat or warm headband that fits snug over your ears. The Tu winter accessories selection boasts a range of winter hats for women if you’re looking for a colourful new addition to your winter wardrobe.


Always one of the last things we put on before we head out the door, gloves are a much-needed accessory in the winter months. Whether you like yours in a slim-fitting leather or prefer to go high-tech with touch screen friendly material, there’s a pair out there to suit you. Choose something with a bright stitch throughout or opt for a fun, colourful design like snowflakes or stars.

Thick tights or leggings are a winter wardrobe staple, and double up as a great way to add a definitive splash of colour to your everyday look. It’s a bit of fun that will not only make you stand out against the crowd, but will also bring some cheer to an otherwise minimal outfit. If you’re wearing black or neutral elsewhere, coloured or patterned tights are a fantastic way to make your whole outfit pop with minimal effort required.


If you’re not too keen on wearing coloured accessories, another way to add some vibrancy is by simply painting your nails. The colour options out there are endless, and when it comes to manicures you can either do them yourself at home or splurge a little and let a professional work their magic. It’s up to you whether you opt for something matching or attempt a full on colour-clash, but it’s important to plan ahead with this one as every outfit of the week has got to go with your chosen shade.

Hopefully you’ve now got some inspiration to help you get out of that winter funk by injecting a little colour into your life. Let me know your bright ideas in the comments below!

    I love these! I have a tendency to stick to black year round so I need to remember to add a splash of colour!
