Two Toned Neutral
Going monochromatic with neutral shades might seem a tad bit boring but when two neutrals are paired together the end result is quite fantastic. Be it a beige with white or a brown with black, you can have endless pairing options with neutral tones. Throw in a pair of suave stilettoes which will help complete the look. You can either go a bit bold and pair neutral attires with bright stilettoes such as cherry and red or you can play it safe by going in for neutral stilettoes. Either ways you’ll end up with looks to kill!
Add a Dash of Color
If going for a plain Jane neutral tone is not your cup of tea or you’re planning on spicing things up a little then this is for you. Go in for a neutral top which can range from white to beige to brown or even black and pair with a light colored pant or jeans. This will keep the look effectively low key and yet add some spunk to it without being over the top loud. Alternatively, you can also throw in a colored blazer for effect. Match the entire pair with neutral heels and you’re good to go.
Champagne is one of the most sought after neutral tones and for good reason. It looks drop dead gorgeous and plays a dual role- it keeps your outfit simple but at the same time it adds sophistication which is hard to beat. It’s a very easy color to match make up and accessorise as well. Be bold and go in for a champagne look from head to toe. It’s a look that will ring in compliments from all directions. If you want to spice things up, go in for glitzy jewellery or a dangling necklace to really set the tone.
Add a Tinge of Glitter
Going in for a shimmery neutral outfit will definitely add oodles of style which will completely rock your outfit. Glitter brings in the added style factor to an otherwise plain color and gives you freedom to carry off a sophisticated look with a dash of fun. Keep the accessories simple and let your outfit do the talking. If you want, you can pair a glitter neutral top with simple jeans or pants incase an all glitter outfit is too much for you. The match will surely help you win hearts.
Print it Up
You can completely hit the ball out of the park and have a winner of an outfit by adding a bit of print to a neutral outfit. Go in for an all plain outfit which can include two tones and throw in a blazer. Spice up the look with a beautiful scarf which can be floral, animal printed or just a simple print. The added touch of color and print will surely make your neutral outfit a winner from the word go!
