The Lowdown: Now that the bright holiday colors have faded, we’re feeling in grave danger of being overwhelmed by the winter blahs. Seriously, you know that as much as you admire those red wool coats and cobalt blue shoes in the magazines (and your favorite fashion blogs, of course) the majority of your wardrobe is, well, basic black. It’s our New Year’s Resolution at TBF to change all that — and lift our moods by injecting some bold color into our January 2011.

Where to start? As you know, we’re huge fans of the dress as the most direct route to feel flirty and feminine anyway, so adding a bit of color might just make us more cheerful than we can take — but we’re willing to risk it. Our advice, if you choose to join us, is to pick a dress suitable for your lifestyle — that sassy red cocktail dress IS fabulous, but if you never wear cocktail dresses, picking up something bright and work-appropriate makes a whole lot more sense. Our picks from eDressme.com, from $44 to just under $145 apiece.
