How to Beat the Winter Blues with Bright Wardrobe Picks

Alexandra Martin is a wearwell stylist living in NYC. When she's not creating stylist picks for wearwell members, she enjoys cooking old-school vegan health food, reading historical nonfiction, diving into astrology, and hanging out with her beloved friends.

Depending on where you live, you may feel like it’s already been a long winter! The cold weather and scant sunlight can sometimes feel a bit lackluster, especially once the holidays have passed. To ward off those winter blues, I like to be the bright that this season is craving. It's amazing what a colorful outfit can do to lift your mood! Read on for some of my favorite bright, cheerful, and sustainable pieces that you can shop right now with wearwell.


Let the Sunshine In!

Lorena Backpack, Butterscotch


Bring some sunbeam-inspired style to your look with dashes of yellow like the Lorena Backpack and the Meet Cute Studs. What do you call a fly who wears yellow accessories? A wanna-bee! I’m sorry, I had to. Winter delirium made me do it. Recover from that dad joke with a sophisticated spin on sunshine: the Cotati Dolman Sweater sports this cheery motif on a muted background for subtle sunlight flair.

Chase the Rainbow

If you like the idea of touches of colors, but can’t commit to just one, may I suggest the Apolonia Tote? This baby features a veritable rainbow of colors and is big enough to carry all the things you like to keep at hand. Add the Mini Cristina Pouch for a coordinated way to keep your tote organized! Choose the Stella Hoops in your favorite color to bring a vibrant splash to a neutral or monochromatic look.

If the gray days have you feeling like touches of brightness are not enough, go all in with a colorful dress. The Aditi Wrap Dress features an abstract pattern in psychedelic hues. Wear it as a wrap dress for maximum brightness or let it pull double duty and wear open as a duster over any outfit that needs cheering up. The Mumbai Maxi Dress is pure kaleidoscopic joy - so many mesmerizing hues! Did you know that a group of butterflies is called a kaleidoscope? Close your eyes for a minute and enjoy that visual.

For more brilliant beauty, slip on the Adelaide Tiered Mini Dress. You’ll love this number in the warmer weather, too, but when you need brights now, winterize it by topping off the look with the Bridget Cardigan or the Cori Wrap Sweater. A tall boot like The Reina can also give this piece more coverage to keep you cozy.

Oodles of studies show that exercise really does boost your mood. If you like to keep moving during these cold months, don the vivid Yoga Scoop Crop Top and matching Pocket Cycling Shorts to get the smile started before you even begin your workout. Need some sweats to stay warm for the walk to the gym (or lounging at home)? Pair The Raglan Sweatshirt with The Sweatpant for an on-trend matching athleisure set that’s made from super soft organic and recycled cotton.
