Moms don't have a lot of time to dress in the morning, so they often rely on that old standby: black. There's nothing wrong with that — except that it can get redundant.

No one else but you notices that you're wearing the same jeans with the same black top for the eight millionth time. As reliable as those pieces might be, sometimes change is in order.

An easy way to breathe new life into your old duds is with a pop of color. And accessories are the simplest way to add that pop. A cheerful scarf, belt or handbag can bring a tired outfit back to life. Perhaps more important, accessories cost a whole lot less than new clothes.
