In today’s post, I explore the topic: Styling neutrals. I love a nice splash of color from time to time (I’m always passionate with apple green), but — listen to me—neutral outfits can be incredibly cool. I can not deny how easy it is to dress, that’s why colorful clothes are sometimes considered more difficult. If you stick to a spectrum of cream, brown, khaki and black, you can easily mix and match, because all these shades harmonize perfectly.
We’ve all heard these dos and don’ts-the rules that seem to tell us what we can wear and when and how we can wear it. Fortunately, and I’ve been telling you for years, the only thing that really matters when it comes to fashion is a good feeling for ourselves. So I’ll say it again. In 2022 dress for authenticity on an attempt to fit. There, I said it. Everybody is different, so it makes sense that not every trend, style, shape or color is suitable for everyone. The key is to figure out what works for you and run with it.
Neutral colors have always been something I look for when I want to choose an effortless style. Undoubtedly, with the neutral pieces I own, I always feel stylish, polished and effortlessly cool, whether it’s budget purchases or designers. And this is really the joy of neutrals, they always raise an outfit.
Playing with Volumes
When it comes to styling neutral colors, they play with volume. Do not be afraid to give an oversized coat, wide-legged trousers or a wide skirt a whirl. Remember that it is a myth that you need to have a certain height or height to wear exaggerated shapes-there is a way to do this for everyone. Forget about the “rules” and have fun with it. The volume does not need to be extreme – a slightly buffered steering wheel or sleeve will give the desired movement to any neutral Look.
High-waisted and wide trousers are almost universally flattering when combined with a more fitted top. For a touch of volume that you can throw away as soon as you step inside, try a huge coat or an oversized jacket or blazer. Even a casual trench coat can be easily classified into this category with a Push-up of the sleeves.
Playing with texture
Think about the layers of Textures. Do you want to elevate your winter tonal looks and Add a good old Wow factor without breaking the neutral atmosphere? Add a few statement pieces in the form of jewelry, shoes, bags or coats. I’m in love with my new Teddy from Max Mara and I’m not mad at the above Sherpa clutch, I admit. Adding texture to a neutral outfit adds depth to your Look, that’s the Advice.
Play with subtle color variations
I love style neutrals for their versatility, portability and timelessness. They will never go out of fashion and are wardrobe staples that you will keep for years to come. Clothes with more longevity means a gain for you and the planet. Neutral colors are colors that do not necessarily attract attention, which is exactly why they are great. They tend to work with most other colors, so you can ground your outfit with neutrals and a bright top. This is how the eye is not attracted and overwhelmed by many places on the body. It’s About Balance. Sometimes they are also called basic colors, because you can use them as a basis for your outfit.
