Neutrals In Charge


It's a matter to wonder how our sensibilities are affected by colours. Every colour plays a role in evoking thoughts in our mind. When we feel energetic our hands automatically reach out for bright vibrant colours.

Talking of colours, the new colour trend coming is the unsaturated colours or the neutral colours. Recently we have seen a rage for the neutral colours throughout the social media be it in makeup industry or the fashion world. A fashionista's wardrobe is incomplete without neutral coloured staples. They may seem easy colours to work with but one does need aesthetic sense to style that creates a statement.

To give a better understanding, we are going to talk about five neutral colours and the products one should own and how to style them.

1.White

White Bralets

They always steal the show in the summers and crochet bralets are perfect for this season. They personally have our hearts. So easy to pair it with different outfits and one can create various looks with it. And white per se is a versatile colour whether it is day or night, it really brightens up your ensemble. Who says it's boring?

White Sneakers

The superstar of the season is no doubt the white sneakers. They are the current sensation of the street style. There are big labels like Gucci and superstars collaborating with adidas who have tried their hands on these classic sneakers. These can suit any body type and any look be it grunge, pop, casual or a soft look with a tulle skirt.

White Frames

Next on the list is white framed sunglasses. Take a look at this eye candy which can make a statement and make you stand out in a crowd. The white frames being a neutral colour does not blend in and give the right amount attention to your eyes.

Pair it up with a pop colour or even other neutral colours to give a retro element to your look.

2. Beige

Beige Bag

A beige bag is a go to if one does not understand the equation of matching the bag with an outfit. This bag is a very classy piece to get your hands on. It not only gives a chic look but gives a lot of character to the whole ensemble.

Beige Pants

Just like the bag it is a staple! It not only complements western wear but also Indian wear. These pants are flared at the bottom which is suitable for inverted triangle/apple body type to balance the upper half of the body. This colour is perfect for summer and specially the linen fabric which makes you feel very light and comfortable and is easy to move around throughout the day.

Sheer Top

If one is going for a very feminine and sensuous look then beige sheer top should be on your list. The flow of the garment sits very beautifully on the body and the beige colour adds that peek-a-boo element.

3. Taupe

Taupe Duster

For people who are on the go should have a duster. It instantly takes your basic look up a notch above simultaneously protecting you from the not-so-friendly rays. Taupe colour duster is rare to find but if one does they should not miss a chance to own it. A light fabric which has a flow looks very flattering and also gives depth to a look by adding a layer.

Taupe Hat

We personally love the bohemian subculture style. A hat gives you the whole wanderer kind of a feel. Although it does require a lot of confidence to pull off a hat but there is no harm in being experimental with your style and making it fun!

Taupe Heels

Why leave the six inches behind! Experiment with a taupe coloured heels for a nice fine dine dinner. The colour is neutral but not at all basic. It gives a polished look to the ensemble depending on the material. The win-win deal here is that it can be worn with a casual basic look or with a formal classy look without hurting the eyes.

4. Dusky Pink

Dusky Pink Skirt

This dusky pink accordion pleated skirt with a metallic sheen on it gives a very casual and an art deco feel. The A-line silhouette with pleats give a linear shape to the body and makes one look taller. This colour can be paired with a lot of other colours and need not to say with the neutrals too.

Dusky Pink Bag

It takes a lot of experience and fashion understanding to match a bag with an outfit however, a neutral colour like this one is formal yet with an element of fun which can be easily paired with formal white shirt and a blazer. The texture on the bag adds another layer of design element to draw the attention and take the 'boring' out of the general connotation with the colour.

Dusky Pink Dress

This fit and flare dress brings out the young factor in a person. The crochet overlay on the dress adds dimension to the dress which does not scream yet makes a statement. One can pair this with a pair of dark coloured heels or even a neutral colour like beige, black, tan, etc.

5. Sage green

Summer Blazer

To add a new colour to your 9-5 wear other than blacks and whites one can go for sage green summer blazer which is also perfect to wear for a coffee date after work. This boyfriend blazer gives body to a petite body type. The colour has grey undertones and sometimes brown undertones that suit a variety of colour complexions.

Tie Up Heels

This colour also complements the whole gypsy feel. And the tie ups go really well with a pair of distressed boyfriend jeans or a flared skirt. The tie up booties give the feet a compressed look which is perfect for people with broad feet.

Jumpsuit

A jumpsuit is such a hassle free garment to just throw on a sage green jumpsuit if you want to go for a summer getaway. The colour also gives a very vintage element to the whole ensemble. A tan belt complements and cinches the waist if it feels loose around that area. From sneakers to booties you can experiment with the type of footwear considering the activities you will do during the day.
