5 Pretty Colors That Will Make Your Outfits Feel On-Trend This Winter

Once the holiday season is over, winter tends to get, well, pretty dark. Come January, the slip from merry and bright to moody and monotonous comes quickly, and the world becomes a sea of black, navy, and gray outerwear.

But it doesn't have to.

In fact, this winter, we're anticipating five vibrant shades to take over otherwise dark winter wardrobes. Hues like pumpkin and rusty brown will carry over from autumn, while more unexpected shades like ice blue and punchy pink provide a nice pop of color.

Of course, bright red is always a good choice when one is looking to stand out, so swipe on some red lipstick and prepare for the most colorful winter on record.
