They come in different styles that are simply easy to pair with almost anything in your closet. You can style it back with your trusted jeans, statement boots, and a fur coat for when you need to head out in style.

Take your sweater dress for a spin. Comfortable chic is all about pulling off a stylish and effortlessly put-together look. By this we mean snagging a chic sweater dress that you can pair back with an over-the-knee pair of boots. Sweater dresses come in different lengths, too, such as mini and midi, so you have available options based on your style preference. And if you’re feeling like adding to the mix, we love to see this look with patterned or lace tights.


 3. The neutral colored cardigans

Neutral-colored cardigans come in different cuts, shapes, and styles that enhance your overall outfits. And yes, we all have at least one or two in our closets. But contrary to belief, they’re not just for windy days or covering up. With their light and comfortable material, they can be used to layer and create a whole other look that’s worth noting. Relish in plain pieces, as well as the ones that come with embellishments. Wear a buttoned-up neutral-colored cardigan over a turtleneck top, tucked in lounge silk pants, and finish off the look with mules.


 4. The runway-ready lounge set

Nowadays, loungewear is looking to take over our wardrobes. With so many options made available to you, the possibilities seem endless. Perhaps, you can style a pajama set with an ankle boot and a trench coat in a solid color or a print. Or layer your weekend look with a sweatpant set, a trench coat, and printed pumps. In mixing up basics with high fashion clothing, you make more out of the fashion pieces you would usually invest in. Whether you’re heading out for errands or simply taking a stroll, never forget to do it all in style. Because sometimes, it’s really not that complicated anyway.

There’s no denying it: The flattering turtleneck can never go out of style. With its iconic standing in the fashion world, the turtleneck has been incorporated in many different ways because they look chic with everything n. Turtleneck sweaters are simply amazing because they come in both light and thick material. Upgrade your street style outfit by taking a neutral-colored turtleneck and throwing a vest or a printed poncho over it. Finish the look with neutral pants. Slip on your fave boots or sneakers. Easy!


6. The grey tonal dressing

One of the easiest ways to look polished is to master tonal dressing. Add in textures and patterns with solid shades to achieve balance. Begin with going monochromatic in a grey sweater and a grey skirt, and throw on a textured grey coat to go with the whole look.


The journey of self-styling

Self-styling can always be tricky. But there are ways to pick up on navigating yourself through the fashion maze. The best way to do exactly that is to simply begin.

Here are some styling tips you can take note of when buying and wearing neutral colors:

  • Don’t be afraid to strut in all grey, tan, black, white, etc. outfits.
  • Neutral colors don’t have to match perfectly if the sets don’t technically go together.
  • Bright and neon colors look great paired back to tan, white and grey to spice things and add a pop of color to your outfit.
  • Pair neutrals with either a neutral coat in the same tone, a coat in a different shade, or a fun print (ie. An all-white sweat suit looks amazing paired back to a herringbone trench coat)

  • Add a scarf or fur collar to a coat to add a bit of fun texture and a pop of color.
