Rich winter colors add depth and comfort to a cold day. When one adds a pop of color, as I did with the handbag, it helps lighten the day. Step out this winter in a color palette that feels inspiring. Then, add some vibrance and chase away these blustery blues!
Color palettes are a matter of preference. However, everyone loves lush velvet or ultra suede in such rich winter colors as burgundy, mustard, spruce green and even the dusty rose shade I wear above.
The leggings are ultra suede and are many years old. Sueded fabrics feel so cozy on. Furry jackets up the comfy factor!
To dress up a look add heels as I did, with the YSL shoes that I bought second-hand. It would be easy to dress this down as well. Can’t you just picture this look with furry winter boots and a fuzzy beret?
True teal and muted rose are rich winter colors that feel almost neutral.
I do remember the super steep discount of this piece , and thinking that a Zara coat would be priced in the same range.
I am sure you noticed the different lighting in each photo. Stepping twenty feet was wise and proved to be a much sunnier spot. So many people on the sidewalk that day! Therefore my photos are not consistent in color, and the resolution suffered in the darker, but less busy side of the street.
Light leaks were added liberally to add some life to this dull city street. A cloudy day is a challenge, especially in waning light. Photo editing is calming for me however. Some of these photos are not up to snuff. Please forgive, as the outfit is nice, IMHO.
Platform shoes give my vertically challenged frame some height ! When a platform is added, the incline is not so steep that is hurts ! However, I would not wear these on a city walk, ( except for a BRIEF photo shoot). These are dinner shoes only !
My turquoise “kelly” style bag is an older eBay find. Everything
Everything that I am wearing is either second-hand or bought locally. Nothing I wear today is new. I have been shopping my closet ladies and gents!

Rich winter colors are lovely in home decor as well. Let me show you two rooms that have similar color schemes.
Decor is a passion of mine as well, and these room also combine dusty rose and teal. Furry textures add a winter hide away coziness.
From HomeBNC, check out this artistic room. Do you also see a similar vibe?
Yes, now how about this sweet oasis ?
Some rich winter glam for your neck? Look not further ( but do not buy, lol ) than this Bulgari necklace from my favorite jewelry site, 1stdibs.com. Seriously, it is magnificent, but one could buy a car for this pice. And yet, I just had to share it!
Rich winter colors from prior posts:
Featured just about one year ago, cobalt blue and emerald green, with ebony and taupe. This coat was a gift from my friend!
What are your favorite winter colors? Do you wear mostly black, like the prototypical urban fashionista? Or do you add some warm and saturated tones to your ensembles?
LET ME KNOW! YOU KNOW HOW!
Furthermore a side note: for those affected by the government shutdown, and especially to those who continue to work if able, I send compassion and gratitude !
