the winter winds were blowing last week here in Georgia and have already made a reappearance. so how do we keep our style mojo going while we stay warm? it’s elementary my dear. so today it’s all about how to style neutrals for winter. i know, i know, neutrals can be boring. but then again, there is something so simple, so elegant and so chic about a soothing timeless neutral palette.
the easiest way to keep neutrals for winter fresh and interesting is by mixing different tones and textures. think a textured faux fur jacket or tweed blazer paired with a chunky knit sweater and suede booties. sticking to a spectrum of cream, brown, and beige means you can mix and match to your heart’s content as these shades go together seamlessly.
it’s been said that white and tan are colors that symbolize purity, simplicity, and stability. personally, i find something comforting about taupes, oatmeals, camels, and creams which are the basis of today’s outfit. i love how these neutrals for winter not only go seamlessly together but can be mixed and matched with bold colors as well.
these sculpting high pocket jeans (similar here, here, and here) are a recent purchase from Ann Taylor that’s sold out?! grrrr! i hate when that happens. but take heart as Ann typically restocks their denim. a style tip for white or light colored denim is to size up one size. the chunky turtleneck is from Banana Republic and the suede booties (old, similar here) are from Talbots. many of you might remember this faux fur jacket (similar here) from Vince that i scored a few years ago at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. it’s such a fun jacket to wear and instantly adds pizazz to your outfit.
to highlight your booties cuff your jeans so that they skim the top of the bootie.
