The neutral palette has been all the craze recently. From neutral eyeshadows to neutral lips, it only makes sense that neutral accessories come into trend, although it doesn’t have to be boring. The best way to maintain a fun summer vibe while holding on to your beloved neutrals, is by pairing them with bright colors. I think brown is a great color to experiment with in the summer because its warm undertone is the perfect complement for the season, unlike the cool undertones of black or gray.
I found this Fashionista and fell for her chic, girly outfit. Her dress is a beautiful coral color, but what caught my eye was the coordinating brown accessories throughout the look. Adding a belt is the best way to keep your feminine figure without taking too much attention away from the dress. The subtle gold hardware on the belt matches perfectly with the subtle gold hardware on this Fashionista’s delicate brown, leather watch. Often we are told that we don’t have to be matchy-matchy when it comes to fashion, but maintaing a color scheme throughout helps an entire outfit look put together and polished.
Combat boots seem to be everyone’s go-to shoe for the fall and winter season. This Fashionista added an effortlessly edgy look to her summery dress by lacing up a pair of chocolate brown boots. She could have easily added a pair of neutral sandals, but by adding a shoe that has more dynamic she uses an neutral color to her stylistic advantage.
How To: Put together an outfit using a fun summer color and use warm, neutral pieces, like this hat, to accessorize.
