elle change de couleur

Why "de couleur" ?  I would have expected "la couleur" or "de la couleur".

Hi Frank,

This is verb 'changer de quelque chose' -

changer de place swap places ( with someone) 

changer de chemise to put on a new shirt 

changer de route to go a different way

None of them take an article, it is just the way it is.

Bonne Continuation!
