When Megan and I put together these 2 outfits I almost couldn’t believe that we both went for neutral looks to wear with our new Melie Bianco bags. If you’ve been a reader of either of our blogs for an extended period of time then you know that we are both obsessed with bold, bright color and neutral outfits are few and far between, but when it works it works…and these neutral looks work! I’ve said this in the past, but I’m going to remind you again, neutral absolutely doesn’t have to be boring and since Megan and I are anything but boring and love to push the envelope when it comes to fashion and beauty I though it would be fun to talk about how to wear neutrals when you love color!
Unless I’m going for an all black super classic look, when I wear neutrals I like to have a little bit of fun with them! For this outfit I started off with a black body con dress and black OTK boots. I knew I didn’t want to wear a plain coat so I opted for a plaid neutral code to top off the look and went a little crazy with my accessories! I decided I wanted a pop of color somewhere in my outfit so I added a fun vintage red scarf instead of a necklace and finished my look with statement earrings and a bag with some awesome detailing. As for Megan she is wearing her neutrals a little different. She kept the colors of her outfit simple – tan, white, blue and red – but went for statement pieces!! I love that she went for a pop of color with the blazer too! Clearly we had the same idea when it comes to how to wear neutrals in our normally color filled lives!
And as I finished writing all of this I realized that not only is this post and our outfits super relevant to people who love color, but it’s also perfect for people who love neutrals and are looking to add a pop of color and fun to their outfits! All of my posts are meant to inspire and I hope this one did just that! A little dose of inspiration for how to wear neutrals!
