With sunnier days on the horizon, it’s time to lighten up our closet with fashion neutrals. The traditional warm-weather palette of white, ivory and tan has expanded.
And what a breath of fresh air! Who doesn’t enjoy the organic, earthy tones of caramel, olive and sienna? After all, the best way to build a capsule wardrobe is with colors that go with anything. Here’s how to make your neutrals new again.
Splurge a little. This is where to invest, because it’s the most flexible part of your closet. Plus, you will be able to style more complicated pieces without asking, “How do I wear it?”
TRY: A structured blazer with a sporty slant. Or a timeless trench with an industrial design.
MIX, DON’T MATCH: Wear warm and cool tones together for a luxe springtime vibe. Then layer in texture for a playful twist.
TRY: Silky separates with feminine draping. Get some height with a linen and suede
ADD SOME EDGE: Versatile doesn’t mean predictable. It’s how you style your pieces that elevates the look.
TRY: A modernized shirt dress with a graphic inset. Carry a distinguished geometric tote with artistic accents.
