Winter Color Palette - Berry || Frosted Greens/Blue || Mauve || Cream

Winter inspires some of my favorite color schemes.

Whether you have a hot date, an photo session, or just feel like putting a little extra into your daily outfit, I thought I would share a color palette that I came across on Pinterest (where else?) and tweaked a bit to make my own. I’ll throw in a few ideas for accessories and jewelry and you’ll be on your way! Don’t forget to tap into your creative side and make it your own!

Here is the flower crown that inspired the color scheme:

Isn’t it just gorgeous? So vintage looking, and the boldness of the berry color adds just enough pop. I also happen to personally love mauve and frosted greens and blues, so this palette speaks to me so much.

If I was to put together an outfit based off of these colors, I would start out with a bold berry colored dress. If you would like something more subtle, I would go with either a mauve dress or a light, frosted or pale blue. Keep your outfit simple with little to no patterns. The most important things is: wear what you are comfortable and feel amazing in! Here are a few dresses and outfit ideas I found that would be a great starting point (P.S. if you click on any of the pictures, you’ll go back to where I found them!).

 

First, the main attraction:

Berry options I love:

Berry is a bold, gorgeous option, so I recommend keeping the rest of the outfit simple and even understated so not to be overwhelming.

In contrast to the berry outfits, mauve is subtle and elegant. Feel free to grab some big earrings or a loud necklace - as long as it matches the scheme!

 

Blue options I love:

Not looking for something fancy? Pale or “frosted” blue is simple, understated, and looks great with a nice pair of jeans or leggings!

 

Next, grab some accessories!

The color and type of your accessories will obviously depend on what you choose for your outfit. The biggest thing to remember, especially if you are heading to a photoshoot, is that the more patterns and bold colors you are wearing on your clothes, the simpler your jewelry should be, and visa versa. Choose gold or silver jewelry, not both. I tend to lean towards gold for berry and mauve outfits, and silver for blue. Here is some jewelry that matches the scheme and will hopefully get your creative juices flowing for your own look. I hope you are just as inspired as I am!

And finally, what to do with you hair?

 

The actual style I would recommend depends so much on the outfit - dress, sweater, or tank top; long or short hair; color of your hair and your horse or pet’s hair…but, I did do some looking around for hair accessories that compliment the colors well and will hopefully give you some inspiration!
