Some people call a monochromatic look based on neutrals boring and stale, but in my opinion, nothing could be further from the truth. Fortunately, modern fashion agrees, as this look has made a comeback. People are appreciating it for what it always was: effortless, refined, and polished. Whether you choose to wear a neutral monochromatic ensemble in a classic street style or embellished style, it will never let you down.
Neutral looks have been incorporated into this year’s top fall and winter styles. These upcoming trends make this style chic and current, while it’s always been timeless and elegant. Throughout the autumn and winter, you will be seeing beautiful hues of cappuccino, caramel, chestnut, mocha, and chocolate. Yes, these all sound like delicious seasonal treats, and they almost make you smell the fabulous scent of the fall. They also create a fantastic wardrobe with pieces you can continue to wear into the future.
Building Your Neutral Wardrobe
Neutrals add flexibility and diversity to the framework of your closet. They give you pieces that can stand alone or go together with a variety of wardrobe items.
When building your wardrobe, you will want to focus on the tones you choose as your staples. Pick the ones you will enjoy wearing and that you can pair with other pieces in your closet.
If sequins, beading, and feathers are more your “cup of tea,” you do not need to stay away from neutrals. They can serve as a fabulous backdrop to detailing. Yet when you are open to them, neutrals can be worn to make a statement by themselves when you wear them in certain ways.
