How to Style Neutral Tones & Why They’re a Must Have Style Staple

The trend that goes with literally everything is taking runways by storm. Beige, cognac, tans and all the shades in between – neutral tones are taking over. What I especially love about this trend is the blank canvas you have for accessories.
My rule of thumb is if the focal piece of my outfit is neutral, my accessories are where I add a pop of color. For example, if I’m wearing a neutral top, I might add a statement necklace or opt for a colorful pump.Trend Alert- Neutrals
Don’t think if you wear a neutral piece it can’t be paired with another neutral. Truth be told, I LOVE mixing and matching neutrals. Every neutral tone matches one another making the possibilities of outfit combinations virtually endless.
 Mix & Match: Neutrals

Take this look for example. A mocha colored knit sweater dress, paired with a beige duster coat and tan, knee-high boots — all different tones that work harmoniously together to create a chic and neat outfit. Taking less than 5 minutes, you can put together some pretty stylish looks that could have stepped right off the runway, minus the hefty price tag.

Still not sold? Here are the five top fashion perks of a neutral wardrobe.

  1. Endless Outfit Options. Not only can you create dozens of different outfits with your neutral colored pieces, you also have a base to match literally any other color.
  2. Wearable Year-Round. Neutral tones work year round for all seasons.
  3. Style $aver. You can repeat a lot of outfits by re-styling some outfits with minor changes to create different looks. This means spending less money on clothing without compromising new outfits.
  4. Makes Fashion Risks Do-able.  No more stressing out about whether you have anything in your closet to match a bold print or daring pattern you want to try when shopping because with a solid neutral base, you always will. (Base being minimally a pair of pants, skirt, dress, blouse, and sweater)

If I’m speaking a foreign language to you, no worries. Here’s a visual of some neutral colors that I’m sure you already have in your closet.
