Camel & Crimson + WIWW

IMG_0488The older I get, the more I realize the importance of neutrals in a closet. When I was in college, I had a mini crisis (most likely trigger my being surrounded by 20 year olds) that I was dressing “boring.” Looking back, that “boring” way of dressing was the bud of true sophistication. But when you are emerged in a land of sequins, chevron prints and neons, it can cloud your judgement very easily.

Fast forward to now, post-graduation and at the start of my career, I long for neutrals. Slate grey, camel, classic black and cognac is the backbone behind the closet I pull from every morning. Layering and pairing them in an unexpected way however, is the key to keeping this fresh.unnamed (7)IMG_0512 IMG_0537 IMG_0523 IMG_0491 IMG_0533 IMG_0506

  6. Hi Brenna

    Your neutral look is perfect and polished. Prints or bright colors can be easily mixed with neutral staples (like your jacket) for a color pop when you’re in the mood, but we agree neutrals are not boring and are a sophisticated choice.
