It’s no secret that neutral tones are totally in at the moment. They are everywhere!
I’m looking at you, Meghan Markle…
Light shades like beige, white, light grey and pale pastels give a look that luxury factor. Especially since it’s pretty easy to spot quality when the colors are pale. There is also that edge of keeping the look clean that is a statement of its own. (queue spilling coffee or being hit by a flying raspberry).
I opt for materials like cashmere, suede, silk, satin, wool, and leather when I buy items in these kinds of statement colors. It’s worth investing a bit more since bad quality will be noticeable. These looks might be pale and nude, but they come with an understated statement of money and class.
Feel completely free to mix and match all of these colors in one look. It will only make it interesting. The same with materials. Think rough against shiny and soft. Let the quality and texture of the items do the talking. I would, however, stay away from mixing warm and cold shades. Mainly for the simple reason that the warmer shades will come across as a bit nicotine-yellow next to the pale.
I wouldn’t mind to come home and find all of these items above in my closet. I’m keeping an extra eye on the Prada phone case, the Soft Goat, jumper and the Prada wallet. Just in case they do end up on the Black Friday sales this week. I don’t have a code or discount for Net-A-Porter yet. But I’m pretty sure it will happen at any moment.
The lip balm from by Terry is a classic that many makeup artists have in their kit. I do think it’s a bit pricey though. So I have decided it will be one of my discounted Black Friday buys.
…and those pink Rag & Bone boots couldn’t be more Tess. They are already discounted and the heel is the perfect height. But is suede really a good option in London in winter. What do you think, should I get them? Do you like the neutral tones look?
Don’t forget to keep checking my Cyber week and Black Friday guide, I’m adding new discounts every day.
