When the weather outside is cold and dreary, we tend to find ourselves in a bit of a wardrobe slump. Wearing our comfiest baggy sweater becomes an everyday affair, and we tend to hide ourselves in bland, dark colors evocative of the bleak winter days and nights.
We’re here to get you out of that slump. Right now, it’s all about more—more layers, more colors, more mixing prints and textures—and less being, well, boring. Oh, and keep those colors nice and bright. We promise, it’ll cheer you up.
Stylist Miranda Starcevic shows us how it’s done in the slideshow, below.

If you have to wear black, jazz it up
Sometimes a ton of color just isn’t for you—we get it. But still, even if you’re going to opt for an all-black ensemble, jazz it up a little bit. "Mix in prints and glitter, or go crazy with the accessories,” says Starcevic.
Muna is wearing a Pay’s sweatshirt, Colin Locascio dress, Patricia Field bag, and ASOS sandals. Derlyn is wearing a Pay’s sweatshirt, ASOS dress, Skinny Dip bag, Dr. Martens boots, and Happy Socks socks.
