How to wear neutrals?

ALL-BLACK

A dominant shade that has a special elegance, black gives power to an outfit. As I mentioned in the blog post that I wrote about all-black outfits, the best combinations are those made up of layers. Specifically, rock this style by adding a jacket over a pair of black pants and a black blouse. Or wear a black leather dress over black tights and tie everything with a belt around your waist.

ALL BEIGE EVERYTHING

An interesting feature of beige is that even if it sounds like a boring shade when it comes to office wear, beige isn’t boring anymore. More precisely, a beige suit expresses a crisp and polished look. And if you add a pair of white trainers to it, you will definitely win this fashion challenge.

EARTHY TONES

When you hear earthy tones, you can think mostly of beige, brown, olive and their derivatives. More precisely, earthy tones include those shades that are associated with planet Earth and that create an elevated look. I created such a look for today’s post by combining the olive turtleneck with the beige leather skirt, those nude heels, and the white sleeveless jacket.

ALL-WHITE

The opposite to all-black outfits, all-white outfits have that amazing taste is hard to express in words. Elevated, fresh and polished, the all-white outfits catch everyone’s attention no matter the event. Think only of the reaction given by a white wedding dress! Yes, this is the general reaction given by an all-white look.

NEUTRALS MIXED WITH SOLIDS

Another gorgeous combination is given by mixing neutral colors with solid colors like red, blue or green. You could wear a white dress underneath a red sleeveless jacket or a pair o beige cigarette pants with an electric blue blazer. The choice is yours.
