many equate the word beige with boring. not so! if you’re growing tired weary of all black or navy, then beige is the answer. it’s clean and minimal, and if you vary the tone and texture, it’s modern and fresh. a neutral palette offers an appropriate style option for any occasion, and there’s a neutral shade and combination to suit everyone. if you hadn’t noticed, i’ve had a lovefest with beige and camel this fall that will last well into winter. it’s a no-brainer when it comes to throwing together shades of cream, ivory, and beige. the good news is these wintry hues also look luxe and oh-so chic. so today, it’s all about how to wear head to toe neutrals.
every classic wardrobe is built on a neutral color palette. it’s also easy and fail-safe. but what i love most is that timeless classic pieces in shades of gray, black, or beige last a lifetime. if you strive to have an effortless look, then think neutrals. cozy teddy bear coats, chunky sweaters, and tonal pieces help you pull off the look.
the key to wearing neutrals is texture. experiment with tones and texture within your monochrome palette. today i’m going with shades of beige. a chunky turtleneck, which is seen everywhere this year, adds texture to a cozy knit trouser – both from Ann Taylor. in addition to playing with texture, notice how the rule of proportions is in play – a loose top paired with slim pants. it works every time. but i also added suede pumps (old, similar here) into the mix for an additional layer of texture. accessories are minimal, which is a power statement on its own.
chunky turtlenecks aren’t figure-flattering, but they’re on-trend and a whole lot of fun. size down for a slimmer fit.
these knit pants are not only cozy but comfortable. i’m wearing a size 8 and love the fit.
happy wednesday, ladies! it’s time to put a smile on someone’s face, including yours.
