How To Express Your Personal Style With Neutral Colours

Colour Palettes are the most effective tools for building a wardrobe that expresses your unique personal style and versatility. With a strong sense of your own colors, you won’t have to wait for fashion seasons to bring your favorite colors to you.

You will increase the versatility of your wardrobe when all your creations are in your color range, you can combine your clothes in ways that you never could before.

As you build your wardrobe from your palette, focus on your neutral colors first, then solids, and lastly, prints. Your neutrals will pair with all of the other colors in your palette and will go out of style less frequently.

Invest in good quality neutral fabrics, and the garments that you make from them will be around for a long time to keep your wardrobe versatile.


Picking Neutral Colours

Build a wardrobe beginning with neutrals that would suit your basics- Black, white, cream, tan, all shades of brown and grey are obvious choices. Also any other shade that creates a neutral (duh) canvas is great, like a muted light blue for example. Adding neutrals is an important part of creating a color scheme.

Black and white can also look either warm or cool depending on the surrounding colors. To convey authority and power, wear your dark colors: black, dark grey and navy blue. Black and white are the easiest neutrals to add into just about any color scheme.


Choose one or two neutrals

These colors will make up the workhorses of your wardrobe. A majority of your pants, dresses, blazers, and shoes should be your chosen neutrals.

The six neutrals are light and dark grey, light and dark brown, navy, and black. Greys and browns come in warm and cool variations, so pick ones that match your color profile. Adding browns, tans, and off-white hues are a bit trickier, but with some practice you’ll find adding them gets easier.

For browns, consider using a very dark, chocolate brown in place of black. A pale off-white can be used in place of white or light grey in many cases. And tan can be used in place of grey.

Browns, tans, and off-whites tend to make color schemes feel warmer (as they’re really all just tones, shades, and tints of orange and yellow). Grey will take on a warm or cool impression depending on surrounding colors.

Choosing the right neutral colour is a great way to express your personal style with the flexible versatility it offers.
