Neutral shades Ways To Winter

6 Winter Neutral Color Combinations You Should Try



There is no doubt that I am into neutrals these days. I felt inspired with the snow we had last week to wear neutral shades or I can just accept the fact that snow makes me lazy to dress up. Either way neutrals are my fail-safe way to get ready when I run out of color ideas, or inspired by the weather or when I am running late. They make it appear as I have tried without putting much effort.

Why Neutrals?

  • They are the foundation of your wardrobe, everything almost start and ends with them.
  • They work really well with each other, so everything always matches however you mix them.
  • They emphasize the bold elements in your outfit like your jewelry, handbag and shoes.
  • They are classics so you can wear them over and over and people won’t notice you are repeating.
  • You focus on fit and style because color is not a preference.

I have put together 6 neutral color combination outfits in the following hues and prints. Neutral Hues:  Beige, White, Cream, Sand, Olive, Nude, Tan, Light Grey, Camel, Mocha, Charcoal, Black Neutral Prints: Stripes, Plaid, Gingham, Leopard; Fabric- Chambray/Denim

This are the outfits I usually wear to work. You can easily switch the jeans with trousers. I don’t have a strict dress code (yay!!) so I wear jeans to work everyday (feels so good to say this).

1. Camel+ Grey + Black (hint of Chambray)



Grey and Cognac is a very classy combo for business casuals. For this outfit, I added a hint to chambray to it to mix things up. Lakki (my bff and my photographer) wore a similar combination during our NYC trip, see here. She wore it with Gingham shirt instead. I love both combinations but this chambray shirt with a ruffle wins for me as it adds a feminine touch to the outfit.

2. White + Grey + Nude (hint of Sand and Beige)



This is one of my favorite outfits on the blog and popular too. It’s an easy blend of many neutral shades. I didn’t own any white jeans until last year, when I finally decided to give it a try. White jeans are really tricky to wear, first they are not flattering always, second you have to lookout for where you are sitting.

Finding the right fit that doesn’t make you look chubby is my number priority when I’m choosing a light shade jeans. I am glad I found my perfect white pair at Asos.

3. Beige + White + Black (hint of camel)



I’m not getting over my white jeans phase anytime soon :)! Seriously this outfit is the best example of all the items I’m absolutely obsessed with- sweater, jeans, coat and scarf!. I want to highlight the Jcrew lady coat here. If you are wondering why they are so popular, so let me tell you, they have the most flattering fit, period! If you are a petite, you will love it to pieces (I promise!). They come in regular, petite and tall sizes and in many colors. The hard part is to find your size as they sell out pretty quick esp when they are on sale. The only thing I didn’t like is the alignment of the pockets. They are bit behind compare to other brands, you have to literally search for the pocket holes. Apart for that the coat is very very warm and worth every penny.

4. Gingham+ Grey + Nude (hint of beige, camel and ivory)



Gingham has to make it to my neutral list because my wardrobe is incomplete without checks and stripes. I actually posted this in my insta stories last month and I got so many compliments. I wore it with nutmeg pumps instead of boots. If you don’t know- there is a pink color and there is a pretty pink color :D. This coat is what I call the prettiest pink color. I included few more pink options in the widget below.

5. Olive + Beige (hint of leopard and black)



Moto jeggings are not style but I love this pants, they are comfy and fit my pear shape body really well. I also styled them in 3 ways IN THIS POST, if you missed it. Sometimes I wear the shoes I want to wear no matter what outfit I’m wearing (weird,I know!), that’s what happened with this outfit but fortunately they complemented my look really well!

6. Stripes + Plaid



Well hello to my favorite prints- stripes and plaids. I added a hint of leopard through the sunglasses I’m wearing. You can also carry a leopard print bag to add a edgy touch.
