STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Black And White And Gray! Oh My!

April 8th, 2015 at 2:00am

It’s cool to be neutral. Neutrals tend to get a bad rap because they can appear boring and unexciting, but with the right styling neutrals can make an outfit more swoon-worthy and less of a snoozefest. This Fashionista is cool in her black, gray and white getup. It’s heating up in the mile-high, and I wrote about wearing bright colors to ring in the springtime in a recent post. Warm weather is a great time to rock bright colors, but this Fashionista shows us that neutrals look just as good. Cool neutrals like blacks and grays are usually worn more often in the chillier months. Neutrals can be hard to pull off because there is a fine line between drab and monochromatic-chic, but this Fashionista gives them a fresh spin.

She is wearing a cute, pleated white top that is both dressy and versatile. Her sleek black mini skirt and black studded combat boots add some edge to her pretty top. A marled gray cardigan ties the black and white colors together and is perfect in case a breeze comes in. The sleekness of the skirt, the coziness of the cardigan and the crispness of her shirt add texture to the outfit and keep it interesting. Her cool sunglasses and stud necklace make the outfit cool and chic. The classic red lip is the perfect pop of color to her neutral look. If you are nervous of neutrals being boring this spring, follow in the footsteps of this Fashionista and mix textures and add small pops of color. It’s a wonder what a little bit of lipstick can do!
