TREND: Mixing and Matching Neutrals

When the word neutral comes to mind, many may think boring and certainly not fashion-forward, but this spring season, mixing neutrals hues will leave a memorable impression on fellow fashion followers. The shades of black, brown, camel and cream are not new to the fashion scene and embody the reputation being timeless and sophisticated. Today’s Fashionista chose to mix the neutral hues of camel, cream and champagne throughout her outfit. This Fashionista tucked in her pink, champagne blouse into her subdued, brown skirt and topped her ensemble off with a cozy camel cardigan and a classic, linen scarf. Not one color in her outfit is exactly the same, but all maintain the same undertone, which creates a perfectly polished look.

Many designers and their admirers have adopted the trend of mixing and matching neutral shades. On the runway, 3.1 Phillip Lim showcased an array of mixed and matched neutral looks for his spring ’11 collection. He and other trend-savvy designers proved this season that you can pair a camel skirt with a nude blazer or a pale gray pant with a black or silver top and can turn heads without needing a punch of color, the possibilities with this trend are endless. While designers are making the neutral wearing trend happen, Fashionistas like this one are bringing this idea to campus. This trend will give your clothes a lot of wear, so go ahead and add these neutral colors to your wardrobe and mix and match them from season to season creating multiple looks with just a few key pieces.

Hint: If you still love pattern and color, try adding a patterned scarf or embellished flats to your understated outfit.
