When you start something with the word “neutral“, it might look to some people as if what’s coming next is boring, classic or dull and plain. Well, NO.
In fashion, some of the edgiest and most interesting styles can be created with the most neutral colors and their different shades. Building on the fact neutral colors are many, and cover a huge range of light to dark colors; the contrast of these colors can be used to create edgy outfits, and the most extreme light or dark shades can be used to create dramatic outfits (think all black, all white or all nude).
Contrasting white and black is a timeless choice, which also happens to be a personal favorite of mine. The contrast of these two colors allows you a huge fan of styling choices. With black and white, you can highlight and conceal areas of your body to reshape it the way you want. You can also elongate, cut off, shorten, slim down and redirect focus. It is simply limitless with these two colors.
Below is how I chose a white A-Line fluid skirt to conceal and blur my lower half, while I picked a tight black and white top to highlight my much thinner waist. The colored addition was to add some fun to the outfit!!
Styling neutral colors is an on-going challenge for me, for I like to take plain concepts and twist them around. How about you??
