How do you know when spring has officially arrived? Some people notice the blooms and flowers, or the sunny blue skies. But for those of us who are fashion-obsessed (who, me?) it's the clothes that make the season. I take one look at those lighter spring jackets,dresses and flats and am so excited to ditch the parka, tights and socks! As a girl living in a climate that can turn into an absolute tundra on a dime, I appreciate every blade of green grass tickling my toes.
For me, spring fashion evokes imagery of bright colours and bold prints. But that's not for everyone and every closet certainly needs a good balance, mine included. You needs a harmonious wardrobe that's just as multifaceted as you! You need compatibility in your closet so that regardless of your mood that day, you can find something that feels right. Although, most of us ladies will probably still complain that we have nothing to wear. For those days you need neutrals my friends, and they really should be part of your wardrobe regardless of your personal taste.
What are neutral colours? What is a neutral outfit? Personal style varies and what may seem indistinct to one person may be too much for another, but blush and earthy tones are a good rule of thumb. The most common shades come to mind such as white, beige, ivory and brown. However, neutrals can encompass everything from lighter shades of pink and blue to army green. Style is individual, so what neutral means to you is just as personal.
Neutral pieces can be found all over, shorts, coats, shoes, pants – you name it. It's easy to find clothing that integrates nicely into your existing closet. They're neutrals after all, they're not there to steal the attention away from your fearless favourites, they're there to complement them. These pieces are so versatile they can be incorporated into a multitude of looks and outfits. Just in case you're not convinced.
