Who among you think wearing Nuetrals are boring? Well, I beg to differ. I love the simplicity and sophistication of neutral outfits. Neutrals can still be interesting and luxurious, and not necessarily just simple. Let’s face it, everyone probably has something in Camel, Black and White. Here are some tips on how you can play up your neutrals.
Mix Patterns and Textures
I bought this top from Paris for really cheap. The pattern was just so interesting that I had to have it. I paired it with a lace skirt to provide a little bit of texture. Layering on texture is just a way that an outfit can feel more intentional. It looks like you put thought into your outfit.
Keep It Classic
There is something to be said about a classic look. Use very classic silhouettes, like these pencil pants and long cardigan. Give the outfit gold accents in the accessories, but keep it simple. The secret to being classic is to look crisp with clean lines.
Dress To Your Body Type
Neutral outfits should compliment your body type. Neutrals have a way of elongating and giving a lean appearance. However, you have to wear things that truly fit and are good with your body type. For instance, I am pretty petite, so I need to ground a full skirt with a longer jacket to give me some length. Since I’m wearing a full skirt and long jacket, I need to wear a higher heel to avoid looking stocky.
Utilize Animal Prints
I personally view animal prints as a neutral. It has a classic color scheme that’s great for layering other neutrals. You can keep it casual with white denim, but animal prints add a dimension of luxury.
