Neutral Zone

Tuesday, August 21, 2012 154 0

Dress (worn as skirt): H&M. T-Shirt: H&M. Leather Jacket: Gap. Handbag: Balenciaga Galet City. Shoes: Boutique 9. Necklaces: Forever 21. Ring: Unknown. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

If you’ve seen a few of my outfits, I think it’s pretty evident that I have a lot colour in my wardrobe, but, I do love a great neutral look just as much as the next girl. Β How about you? Β Do your favor one over the other, or is your closet pretty balanced with neutrals and bright colours?

    You look so gorgeous in these neutrals! I’m the same as you – I have a lot of color in my wardrobe but every once in a while a neutral look is nice. As fall nears I’m starting to balance my neutrals and brights a little more. PS- I nominated you for a blog award today, feel free to check it out on my blog today if you want to accept πŸ™‚

    I like to think my closet is pretty balanced! I have trouble going all neutral, though. I just HAVE to throw in something colorful πŸ™‚ I can’t help it sometimes. But I do really like an all neutral look like this one…it doesn’t seem bland because of the polka dots and the cool style of the jacket. And the bold jewelry.

      Unfortunately, I bought this jacket in the winter. Shockingly, this is the first time I’ve worn it! It’s great too because the colour is neutral, and the leather is perforated, which gives it a cool vibe. Thanks so much Kendall!

    I loooove neutrals but since I’m quite neutral by myself, I feel they don’t bring out the best of me. I do combine neutrals with color all the time but I think that most of my clothes are brighter.
    I really like your’re shoes. They seem to be the perfect nude pumps. How comfortable are they?

    • Jenny
      August 21, 2012

      Thanks so much for visiting and commenting Toma! I love these shoes and they are super comfortable! I usually have a hard time with patent because I feel like they don’t breather or mold to your feet, but these are surprisingly comfortable! I would highly recommend them!

    i really like the fresh appeal of neutrals so i have neutral stapples that can be brighten up with accessories if needs be…
    As for your outfit it’s a lesson in how to do neutrals i think the fact that you used different shades of the same color makes the complete look vibrant and contemporary.

    Jenny, I love natural colours on you as they underline your natural beauty. That leather jacket is amazing, did you get it recently? Adds that edgyness to your look. I am pretty balanced with colourful and natural clothes. I tend to wear naturals more in the fall and bright colours in the spring/summer but really depends on my mood πŸ™‚

    Have a lovely evening dear Jenny :-*

    I love the neutrals on you with a dash of polka dots. This is the perfect example of timeless fashion and I love it.

    I would say that my closet is pretty balanced with brights and neutrals. That said, I typically were brights over neutral during the summer months and leave the monochromatic schemes for colder seasons.

      I totally agree! I definitely wear more bright colours in the summer! We’ll see how my Winter wardrobe plays out this year. I find that my style really has grown since I’ve started blogging. It has forced me to be more creative with my outfits, so I’m excited to see what Fall and Winter bring.
