Full neutral colors
Nothing is easier than to wear neutral-tone outfit from head to toe! You can stick to one neutral color for the whole outfit. However, for a more sophisticated look, wear slightly different hues of the same color such as white, ivory and beige or white.
Play with texture
The trick of styling full neutral outfit is to make it less boring and more edgy by picking some statement neutral pieces embellished with lace, cut-outs or made out of wool, linen… and match it with a softer texture like silk, cotton, satin.
Add bold colors
You can always choose basic neutral colors for the outfit and add bold colors to it through accessories and jewelries, for instance, add yellow, red, or prints to make a statement.
Ruffles, fringes, pleats, waistbands, wraps or puffs details within your outfit will definitely change your neutral styling game. Do not hesitate to give your neutral outfit a sophisticated twist through structured pieces.
