The Appeal of Neutrals in Your Wardrobe

I thought I’d throw a lighthearted post in before the holidays begin about fashion…

We all have neutral colors in our wardrobe, but what a lot of people don’t realize is that neutrals can mix with each other. Where once upon a time you didn’t mix black with brown, I’m happy to report, those days are over. (A few years ago, I had students tell me I wasn’t allowed to mix brown and black!) Mixing neutrals (browns, blacks, blues, greys, tans) can be fun, and the result can be a very elegant look. Don’t be afraid to pair grey with brown or tan with navy. You can later decide if you want to add a pop of colorβ€”red, yellow, orange, or bright blueβ€”but ultimately, neutrals go together. I’ve been having fun playing with these new combinations in my own wardrobe, and I find the possibilities are endless. Here are 14 looks you can copy right now.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
