They are versatile and can be combined with any color and any outfit. Neutrals are perfect choices to complement your style for everyday wear as well as sophisticated options for formal occasions.

When it comes to clothing, neutrals are wonderful pieces in your wardrobe, although beige, cream, gray, ivory or white are not so easy to wear. These light tints have a paling effect to your face, which is generally not flattering for your features. Therefore, learning how to mix and match neutral with other statement pieces from your wardrobe is vital in order to look stylish and chic. Mastering the art of wearing neutrals will be simple by following our tips below.

Generally women with lighter skin complexion look amazing wearing darker shades of neutrals such as buttery, yellow cream tones, cinnamon, brown, black or coffee.

A easy-breezy cream dress, paired with buttery brown cardigan or vest will create a fabulous effect when combine with trendy neutral platforms. For cooler summer nights or evening parties, follow in the same manner by mixing and matching a charcoal or gray dress with a classic, simple nude neutral cardigan.

Another great way to wear neutrals is by combining them with bight, bold colors. Add a touch color to a classic, nude outfit and create a really chic, urban look. Breaking up a toe-to-toe neutral outfit with contrasting colors and more accentuate makeup will highlight your features, adding you a funky flair and extra glam to your look. Nude colors are fantastic ways to put the focus on other colors and spice up your look. However, neutrals are also wonderful options if you want to tone down bold, bright pieces that otherwise would be too emphatic on their own. This way you can create stunning outfits for everyday occasions and formal wear as well, which will definitely make you stand out from the crowd.

Learning how to combine neutrals or how to mix and match them with other colors will make you create some original, sophisticated looks that highlight your feminine beauty and are suitable for every occasion.
