Neutrals started making their way into my wardrobe a few months ago, and now, they are practically all I want to wear. At first, it was mostly about beige tones, but now, I am branching out into khaki, gray and taupe territory. Why do I love them so much? First of all, neutral tones pair well together and go perfectly with brighter shades (think khaki and lime green, or gray and neon pink), second, they look really polished and sophisticated when you go for that monochrome look, and last, they make your everyday staples look sharp and elegant.
Case in point – the cargo dress I am wearing in this post. Cargo anything is a huge trend this season, but what makes this dress really special is the the color! A warm, rich shade of olive green or khaki (depends on who you ask), I know I will definitely wear this dress all summer long because it’s so easy to wear and to style. Great with other neutrals, you can also up the drama by wearing it with bright shades (I’m kinda loving khaki with bright orange lately) or create a stark contrast by opting for all white accents.
Neutral shoes are a must! I mean, I could probably write an essay on why you need them, but to really drive the point home, I could simply say that you will wear them with everything! I mean it, a pair of neutrals sandals will be that pair you’ll wear the most.
Shell and gold jewelry is the perfect companion to your neutral pieces. Honestly, just try it! Add a few layered necklaces or bracelets to your favorite neutral basics and see your look instantly transformed! My favorite styling trick to use – layered necklaces, a few bold bracelets and you’re good to go!
