Spotted in Dressbarn: 6 Times You Rocked Neutrals on Instagram
Never too harsh nor too soft, neutrals balance out your style moods without ever being too dull. Nowadays, the neutral minimalist color palette is making waves across fashionistas and trends worldwide, allowing for shades like tan, camel, and nude (among a wide array of others) to make their statement. Here are the many different ways we spotted you rocking neutral colors for your #OOTD on Instagram
1. Pretty in Plaid
Checkered fabric and plaid prints make for that stylish preppy look you can pull off all year round. And the best thing about this style is that they can be found in skirts, coats, and accessories such as bags and face masks. Always take a chance to play up your neutrals with fashionable prints.
2. Chic in Festive-Ready Pieces
Festive-dresses come in many forms. For example, sexy silk or satin pieces may seem intimidating to wear outside your home, but once you get the hang of this aesthetic, you’ll understand why you need it for your going out wardrobe. From slip dresses to tops, to date night numbers, save these chic pieces for special nights.
3. Animal Print Madness
Who said neutrals meant boring? We love to play an exotic print into a neutral ensemble just to switch things up. This way, adding flair and personality to your outfits can be hassle-free yet ultra stylish at the same time. Mix animal prints with darker shades with black and brown base colors to add warmth to the mix.
4. The Go-To Grey Sweater
A wardrobe must-have, you must always make closet room for the perfect grey sweater. This specific piece is excellent for layering, casual days, and lounging in. Wear it with jeans and boots, over a maxi dress, or a collared shirt for work. There’s simply nothing you can’t do when you’re stylish yet comfy at the same time.
5. Plush and Perfect
Besides basic pieces and essential wardrobe items, we love to don neutral outerwear such as coats, cardigans, and plush jackets. Plush faux fur jackets elevate a look instantly, especially for the Fall and Winter months. They make it easy to add flair casual looks, even if it’s just a plain black fluffy piece. Here’s your style cue to invest in a plush jacket to keep you warm, cozy, and chic.
6. Muted Hues
Muted hues are toned down versions of their vibrant counterparts. In this manner, bold red comes down to rust or brick red, while bright yellow may come in mustard, and green can be forest green or olive. These beautiful shades introduce an elegant touch of color to your daily outfits. Try your hand at tonal dressing and monochromatic looks to fully enjoy dressing up, even if it’s just for a Zoom meeting.
There’s an understated way that only neutrals can spruce up a style. Neutral colors don’t just show up in the color wheel, and this is why they’re not as widely known. But these “earth tones” like black, white, grey, and sometimes brown and beige, simply have their own charm. Don’t be afraid to go beyond old ways and find beauty in toning down your color schemes.
