Summer is the perfect time to sport neutral hues that are easy on the eyes and absorb less heat, thus keeping you cool and comfortable. If a summer wardrobe update is what you have in mind, here are 5 neutral pieces worth purchasing.
Grey isn’t a traditional neutral colour, but lighter, pastel hues of grey work well as neutrals. When paired with dark browns, blacks and even white, they create a light, summery look. Skip the formal trousers and pick lightweight grey jeans or cotton and linen
trousers. If you’re worried that you can’t wear them to work, you can easily dress them up by pairing them with a structured blazer and a tucked-in button-down.
Camel coat or jacket
A camel coat or jacket is the only outerwear piece you need this summer. The thin, lightweight jacket is versatile and will help you style a number of outfits, both casual and formal. Layer it with a T-shirt and chinos to create a smart-casual look or swap your formal blazer with a camel-coloured one to lighten your everyday office-wear.
No neutral must-have list is complete without the quintessential white shirt. In fact, to ensure that you always have a crisp one on hand, add 2 or 3 to your rotation. Pair it with your beige suit, with pastel shorts, grey chinos or wear it under your camel coat—honestly, with a white shirt
on hand, you can create an endless number of fresh ensembles that are perfect for summer.
A white suit is not everyone’s cup of tea, but a beige suit is universally flattering. It is great for summer weddings, a posh brunch or even a dressed-down day at work. With a pastel shirt and tan accessories, it’s the one piece your summer wardrobe can’t live without.
Perfect for a summer holiday or simply a laid-back weekend in the city, cream shorts are one neutral piece you’re going to get plenty of use out of this summer. Pair it with other neutrals or use it to balance a floral T-shirt. Either way, when paired with sneakers, casual loafers or simple summer sandals
, they make you absolutely ready to take on summer!
