One trend that Fashionistas everywhere have been rocking this winter is monochromatic neutrals. Recently, bright colors have been traded out of wardrobes for more black, olive, gray and beige. This increase in neutrals was seen in many spring 2016 ready-to-wear collections, including 3.1 Phillip Lim, Vera Wang and Kanye West.

What I like most about this trend is the versatility of the neutral colors. You can go with a darker palette like this Fashionista did or have a lighter look depending on your mood. If you’re more adventurous, you can also mix lights and darks for your own unique look! Having a neutral color scheme is a sure way to keep your look clean and chic, no matter the occasion.

If you’re looking for inspiration on how to wear neutrals on a cold morning to go to class, just keep it simple like this Fashionista. Start by deciding what neutral tones you want to go with, and from there it’s just a matter of layering. This Fashionista went with olive green pants and decided to keep the rest of her outfit black. She layered a black knit sweater, with a black pea coat and blanket scarf. Of course, no winter ensemble is complete without a pair of booties, so this Fashionista went with a black pair with gold accents to bring the look together.
