Trust me when I say that the scattered amount of bold-colored items in my wardrobe hasn’t been for lack of trying. Every season, I’ll try to make at least a few purchases from the ROYGBIV spectrum to spruce up my otherwise beige-to-black closet. But without fail, I find myself defaulting to a generally neutral color palette. As someone who doesn’t enjoy taking time to get ready in the morning, not having to worry about any of the items in my wardrobe clashing with one another makes getting dressed feel like a breeze. I will, however, give myself a small pat on the back for recently graduating from groutfits (an all-gray outfit) to warmer, beige focused ensembles. Brown counts as a vibrant color in my book.
But despite how minimalist a neutral color palette may seem, the chic combinations that can emerge from it are far from boring. It just takes a little extra imagination to keep a lackluster look at bay. But as these celebs prove ahead, utilizing a few layering tricks and choosing fun textures are all you need to keep your relatively mononochrome looks ahead of the game. Read on to see the looks that are reinforcing my love for neutrals.
