Brightening up winter black

I love wearing color each and every day, especially during the days of warm weather.  But when winter is around and blacks, dark blues, and grays are more of a wardrobe staple, the easiest way to inject a bit of cheer into an outfit is with a pop of color.  Here are three ways I have paired my dark winter basics with a shot of color to create a fun, cheery outfit in the cooler weather.

< Outfit 1: black + mustard >
Jacket: thrifted (love this one) // Shirt: Banana Republic (similar) // Dress (worn as skirt): Anthropologie (another shimmering option here) // Boots: Carlos Santana // Purse: Banana Republic (similar) // Jewelry: Stella & Dot necklace and earrings; LOFT ring

< Outfit 2: black + army green >
Vest: Nordstrom Rack (similar here and here) // Jacket: Old Navy (another option here) // Scarf: Stella & Dot // Maxi skirt: Forever 21 // Purse: Stella & Dot // Jewelry: all Stella & Dot

< Outfit 3: black + emerald >
Dress: Banana Republic (new style here) // Cami: Old Navy (love this mint option) // Purse: Nine West (similar) // Heels: Target // Jewelry: Stella & Dot necklace (new green design!) and , bracelet (on sale!), and earrings
