And sometimes, flowers are what inspire you to update your warm-weather wardrobe…
Many of us have a pretty decent core wardrobe to carry us into the warm weather…
Many people could get through quite a bit of the summer with just these 9 garments – especially if you have to dress for work every day, and this is your leisure wardrobe.
But maybe you want to brighten up your core wardrobe with some pretty colors?
Even just one “French 5-Piece Wardrobe” in an accent color can give you quite a few new outfit options:
Maybe you’re in the mood for orange?
Lace is fun for summer – not insanely dressy, just a pretty way to update a tee shirt…
The nice thing about getting a sweater in an accent color is that you could legitimately wear it throughout the year. At least in Chicago, we will have days in July and August that are “sweater-worthy!”
No matter what your favorite neutral colors are, this bright pink will look great with them! Imagine navy, ivory, olive green…
yes, the scarf above might be lovely with the orange pieces too…
A top in simple fabric but a pretty cut could be as useful over the winter holidays as it is in the spring…
And the easiest way to update with pretty colors is a tank top; these come in 15 colors…
The hardest part of doing this? For me, it would have to be choosing my accent color! But flowers can be so inspiring…

What a pretty collection. I love the pink and orange scarf. I have been looking for something to lift an olive green dress. This scarf might just be it.
It’s hard to beat that bright pink for versatility! – nancyo
The colours look so cheerful. I love the pink and orange scarf as well.
Another reader here who loves the pink and orange scarf. I had a Pucci look-alike scarf in those colors that I took on my honeymoon 50 years ago. Proof, I guess, that some color combinations endure. On the other hand, I remember that Jackie Kennedy was criticized for wearing pink and orange together when her husband was running for president back in 1960. :-)
Swoonworthy soft sage green. We’re heading into winter in the Southern Hemisphere, yet those bright pops of colour would be fab here too. Just add long sleeves … Hot pink socks, yeah!
Ha! These are my summer colors.

Love these bright pops of color. My favorite winter puffer coat was hot pink with a bright orange lining. It broke my heart to give it up after years and years of wearing it.
That green is gorgeous, but so are the others. I love pink and orange together, always have. It appealed to me back in the 60’s and it appeals now. Always makes me feel more alive seeing those shades together in a print or colour blocked in an outfit.
