Hello, my dear friends! What are winter neutrals? Hint, not white. 😉 I consider white a color during winter because it is actually a strong contrast against the overall grayish winter backdrops such as the barring trees. Winter neutral, IMHO, are grays, black, navy, olive-green, dark beige and camel. Camel always make us feel warm and luxurious visually, today, I am using camel as my key color to show you how to layer up the winter neutrals.
It is much simpler than it seems, all you need to do is stacking them up, like in today’s look, I layered a dark camel sweater with a lace skirt of similar shade then top with a coat of lighter shade. If you want to be a little less predictable, put in a secondary neutral color and repeat that color once. That is what I did with the black feather collar and black loafers.
Color lovers can always add a pop of color without changing the overall neutral look. The easier ways to add color are through accessories such as shoes, bag, and during the winter, scarves. What I did was layering in an emerald green animal pattern cardigan. It adds extra warmth, when the coat comes off inside, it will look as if I had on a totally different outfit. Without such a cardigan, I would just use scarves to create that extra “colored” layer.
Thank you so much for reading! I hope you put this simple winter neutral layering tip to test. See you in my next post!
