A Colorful, Casual Spring Outfit
Maybe one day I’ll stop wearing color but today is not that day! I hope you’re not sick of me talking about colorful clothes because that’s what this post is all about.
Being a year-round dopamine dresser means that my closet never truly takes a break from color. I do like to embrace seasonal colors though which means I wear deeper shades in the Fall/Winter. But now Spring is here and bright colors are popping up everywhere – including my closet!
Here’s how I’m being inspired by the new season and came up with a colorful, casual thrifted outfit.
The Inspiration For My Colorful Spring Outfit
I was getting ready for an event and normally my go-to outfit is jeans and a nice top. (Can’t help it – I was a Y2k teen) But I was really feeling like I exhausted most of my jeans during the week and felt like wearing something different.
I started with a bright yellow beret to cover up the greasy roots from my new haircut I’ve been playing with too much, and that really set the vibe for the rest of the look.
Once I started with a statement piece, I just went through my closet matching things together.
I love this striped top and especially how it looks with this beret. I still went with denim – albeit overalls – and then added my pink coat overtop as a light layering piece for the in-between-y weather we were having.
How The Public Reacted to My Colorful Outfit
This outfit got a really positive response from almost everyone I encountered. A few people said that I was “bringing in Spring”!
I felt good about this outfit – which is always most important to me – so it was a bonus that strangers liked this outfit as much as I did!

Tips For Adding Color To Your Closet This Spring
I know I make wearing color look easy but I also know it can be intimidating! If black and gray are your safe zone but you’re feeling bold and want to add some color to your wardrobe this spring, try these tips:
- Wear a fun accessory like a hat or a headband
- Add a pop of color with your jewelry
- Tie a bright scarf on your purse or around your neck
- Wear colorful shoes with your LBD (little black dress)
- Try a new shade of lipstick like pink or red
You don’t have to wear head-to-toe color on the first try. Like with anything, it takes practice. The more you wear it and get comfortable, the more confident you’ll be. Soon enough, you can recreate any outfit I share here or on my social channels!
