how to wear head to toe neutrals

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 opens in a new windowchunky turtleneck, which is seen everywhere this year, adds texture to a opens in a new windowcozy knit trouser – both from opens in a new windowAnn 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, opens in a new window similar here) into the mix for an additional layer of texture. accessories are minimal, which is a power statement on its own.

    You’ve put a smile on my face today! Once upon a time, beige was me. Once my hair went silver gray, I bid it goodbye. But today you inspire me to give it a go again. Just yesterday saw a cowl-neck in a soft beige but veered away. Wish I hadn’t. Will navigate toward the next one! You look fabulous and I want to try your look~

    Well, Beth, I am totally bummed……I went looking for the Hair Biology products only to find out that Target was discontinuing them. I went to the HB website to shop and when I tried to put it in my cart it popped up the Target website—-which I already knew was useless. And it’s not just my store that is not carrying them…… . I was so looking forward to using them. I was able to score a bottle of the Thickening Treatment and so far like the way it’s working.

    I really like the beige neutrals you’ve highlighted today. I think they give a softer look than the usual black & navy that we see so much of. Especially for us gals with warmer skin tones, think the tan,beige, cream palette can be very flattering. Just curious Beth, how tall are you ? Trying to gauge how some of the clothing might fit on me. You appear tall but sometimes pics are misleading. Btw I love your dog Oscar & kitty Ollie. I Have a Maine Coon myself

    • beige neutrals are so chic! and a nice alternative to navy and black. aren’t Maine Coon cats the best? what personalities!

    Your blog came across my feed and stopped me in my tracks. I love the way you styled the tone on tone beige. You look perfectly elegant. This takes me back to the early 90s classic jcrew tone on tone looks with the silk blouses and chinos.
