When you're going formal for an occasion in the spring or summer black can be (and sometimes has to be!) appropriate, yet it doesn't have to be bland and boring. One of the best pieces of advice for your wardrobe in general is to have an array of colored (mostly bright!) cardigans. These sweaters can be layered over virtually anything and does a great job of pulling colors from different pieces in your outfit and making them pop. This is an easy way to create a stylish outfit no matter what the occasion. In this case, if you're wearing black or donning the monochrome look in another color such as navy or grey, a bright cardigan works wonders in adding some spruce to your ensemble. For summer, colors from the warm palette add more liveliness to your look. Subtle pops of color in jewelry against monochromed looks are a great way to add dimension to the overall appearance. Make sure to keep shoes in tow with the monochromed look as well, as it elongates the leg.

Pop of health/fitness: The best way to beat a weight loss plateau is muscle confusion. Muscle confusion is when the workouts are constantly varied, forcing the body to adapt and respond in efforts to achieve maximum results. "We often think cardio is the only way to shed pounds. What actually works best is burning fat with cardio in combination with strengthening the core and increasing lean body mass," FITiST nutrition expert Sharon Richter said.
