Having neutrals in your closet will not only give you more options to mix and match, but outfitting colors like black, white, ivory, brown, gray, and powdery pink look super chic when paired together.
Once you have a good foundation of neutrals from a crips white button down to black faux leather pants, a cashmere top and tan sweater, you’re pretty much set for fall with nice options to pair together for work, dinner or special events. All you’ll need to do from there is swap out your accessories like your jewelry, handbag and shoes to match the occasion.
Basics may seem boring to those that like more color but you can easily add a pops of color or even a fun print with your accessories. Neutrals are nothing ground breaking. They’re like your closet MVP’s that will help you get the most out of your other pieces as you’ll have more opportunities to mix up your look. For example, if you have a favorite top that’s a print, you’ll get more wear if you can wear it dressed down with a nice pair of jeans, or dress it up with your faux leather pants, or a pencil skirt and and long cardigan. Make sense?
Here are a few basic pieces that are worth the investment and you’ll get years of wear out of!
