Neutral dressing is a trend that is suited to all seasons. Neutral colours such as white, beige, black, and grey are a great way for building up your wardrobe. You can base your outfits around darker colours in the winter months, and keep it fresh and light in the summer months. Personally, lighter neutrals are my favourites. Below are just a few pieces of clothing that I think make the most of this trend.
1. Kain Sybil Silk Blouse
Price: $160.00 at net-a-porter.com
The sheerness of this shirt makes for a bright and breezy look. Layer this over a singlet or tank dress. I really like the features such as the turned up cuff and seam detail. This would look great with skinny leg pants and accessorised with a long drop necklace.
2. Topshop Cap Twist Sleeve Silk Shirt
Price: $70.00 at us.topshop.com
This button down silk shirt is a great staple piece. It features cap-twist sleeves and a front pocket. The tan colour would look great with denim and white pieces of clothing. If you want to channel a preppy aesthetic, try buttoning it up right to the collar. Otherwise keep the collar unbuttoned for a more casual look.
3. Topshop Ivory Silk Midi Dress by Boutique
Price: $175.00 at us.topshop.com
This dress is all about simple and understated luxury. It features a button down bodice, collar, and front pocket. I love the longer length of this dress. Play up your girly side and accessorise with a headband and dainty ballet flats or toughen it up with a leather jacket and lace-up boots.
4. 3.1 Phillip Lim Draped Tapered Trouser
Price: $375.00 at lagarconne.com
A good pair of pants is a must for any wardrobe. These tapered trousers would be a worthwhile investment. They feature a faux fly, front pockets, and pleating detail. They also manage to make elastic waists look trendy! These would look great with grey marl or denim on top.
5. Alexander Wang Linen and Cotton Blend Shorts
Price: $410.00 at net-a-porter.com
These box-pleat shorts are incredibly flattering. They have a fitted waistband and overlapping panels at the front and back which create the pleated effect. They also come with concealed side pockets and a concealed zip. Pair these shorts with a slouchy tee, blazer, or denim jacket.
6. Rag & Bone Maxi Desert Skirt
Price: $450.00 at lagarconne.com
The maxi trend is still going strong. This pleated maxi skirt is high up on my wish list! It features all-over pleats and comes with a concealed side zip. This floor skimming skirt would look great worn with a fitted tank top and long, layered necklaces.
7. Topshop Caped Top
Price: $65.00 at us.topshop.com
What I like most about this top is the caped design. It provides an interesting twist to an otherwise basic t-shirt. The caped design gives the appearance of floaty, butterfly sleeves. I’d pair this with a flattering pair of jeans, sky high heels, and statement drop earrings for a casual-glam look.
The best part about neutral clothing is that they provide the perfect canvas for building up colour. Do you wear a lot of neutral colours? Which of these do you like best?
