Outfit Of The Day For June 7, 2012. How To Amp Up Neutrals

June 7, 2012 • Fashion Blog, Outfit Of The Day

Just because you’re wearing neutral or natural shades, it doesn’t mean you can’t amp up your outfit with contrast and textures! You can add some punch to a neutral palette with a variety of metallics, leathers, suedes and contrasting fabrics. This Simply Vera Vera Wang Pintuck Mixed-Media Tank has jersey, satin and matte fabrics mixed all together, but it still needs accessories, or I will look washed out. The metallic handbag and necklaces add some necessary contrast to this look. Easy Accessory Trick: One beaded necklace may look OK, but two necklaces layers together add some extra punch. Experiment with layering 2-3 necklaces for added color and dimension.
