Here's where it all started for me. How to wear neutrals. People think I'm like those decorators who, because they work with color all day, by the time they get home they want to unwind in a quiet zone of neutrals and solids. But I've been wearing neutrals together for years, long before I started doing wardrobe consulting. Here's why:
- Neutrals are classic and timeless. Think about the most well-dressed women in recent history. For their day-to-day lives, many of them stuck to a wardrobe of neutrals. Lauren Hutton. Audrey Hepburn. C.Z. Guest.
- Neutrals allow you to get more mileage out of every piece you own because everything goes together.
- Neutrals allow you to play with accents like fabulous shoes and jewelry, letting them take the leading role of an outfit.
So how do you wear neutrals without looking boring? Or being bored with your wardrobe?
Start with a tone-on-tone outfit. (Don't worry; it doesn't have to be all white.)
Add an accent color for your accessories, to pop against the neutrals.
Layer your look with texture.
Instead of wearing a one color outfit, or tone-on-tone, layer different but complimentary neutrals together.
