Nail your neutrals

  1. When thinking about which neutrals suit us it all depends on our skin tone. Autumn color palettes suit rich, warm earthy colors such as dark brown, tan, oyster, coffee, khaki, lizard grey, dark olive and marine navy, whilst Springs suit warm, clear color choices like chocolate, beige, dove grey, bright navy, tan, honey and cream. Winters look gorgeous in deep, cool colors such as silver, greys, charcoal, indigo, black, mole and stone. Summers suit cool, subtle neutrals such as pink beige, mushroom, rose brown, dark blue grey, light blue grey, soft navy and burgundy.

 

  1. When it comes to shopping for neutrals, quality is the most important factor to consider. The better the quality of neutral, the more chic you will look.

 

  1. Neutral colors can provide you with a solid base on which to build your outfit so invest in quality neutral trousers, jackets and blouses. If you want to make a statement, wear one of your wow colors against a neutral background to really make that colour pop! Think raspberry on French navy if you are a summer for example.

 

  1. Know what whites suit your skin tones. Generally, Springs suit creams, Autumns should choose oyster, Summers should opt for a soft white and Winters look gorgeous in pure white.
