7 Neutral Color Combos That Are Always Chic.

In yesterday’s post I talked about how to refresh your winter wardrobe and my secret to creating new outfits with what I already own (read it here), and today I wanted to follow that up with some more ideas to easily create chic outfits. In these transitional months between seasons, I always rely on neutrals to get me through. Most of my wardrobe consists of neutrals so it’s really just a matter of mixing and matching what I already own. Now is the time to mix and match seasonal pieces together – a favorite winter sweater and white denim, for example. I like to layer different textures to create more interest. You really can’t go wrong with mixing and matching neutrals no matter what season they’re from. Here are some of my favorite neutral color combos that always look great together.

1. Gray, Black & Camel

Camel is my favorite neutral ever and gray comes in a close second. While most people wouldn’t normally think to pair a warm camel with cool gray, the result is actually really pretty and chic. I like grounding the combo with a black bottom. I took inspiration from one of my most used bags – this Gucci crossbody – which has camel and gray shades in it to create this outfit.

2. Gray & Olive

Monotone outfits are my quick solution for those days when I feel like I have nothing to wear. For this look I went with head-to-toe gray and then threw on an olive trench. I love the way olive pairs with gray – it adds a warm touch.

3. Ivory & White

Another play on the monochromatic look. I love wearing all white, but between seasons it’s nice to warm it up a bit with ivory and nude pieces. I have a thing for lightweight waterfall coats like this one. This is the style I wear most often and I just bought it in four colors.

4. Gray & Black

I can never get enough of gray pieces – they work for every skin tone. I love mixing shades of gray and anchoring them with a darker (almost black) shade. These dark gray jeans are one of my favorites. They’re the color “washed black.”

7. Leopard & Black

Leopard is a neutral in my book. It’s a statement print so I like to keep everything else understated. Head-to-toe black is always my go-to option for a great foundation.
