Last month I discussed “the new neutral.” Today I would like to take a moment to discuss the traditional neutrals. Traditionally, variations of cream, tan, and biege could be used to create a very clean look. This is still true. There are ways, however, to add edge to these clean looks.
I do this by adding non traditional cuts and texture. If you have been following me, you know that I love texture. Let’s start with cut though. Below I have a traditional pencil skirt in a vegan leather. The skirt is by Blaque Label. I decided to pair it with a bell sleeve crop top by re:named to give the look an edge.
This top adds an edge to anything it’s paired with. It’s neutral but in no way is it boring.
The other technique I mentioned was texture. Below I have another look composed of neutrals. This time I used a ribbed dress to make this look pop.
The dress is by Calvin Klein. It comes with a belt but switching the belt would be another way to stand out. This time I used the original belt. I added a Michael Kors sweater and a statement necklace.
Here’s a tip. Don’t be afraid to mix different shades of white. It adds layers to your look and is ultimately very stylish.
