Neutral and Layered.

March 8, 2013

Filed Under: Style

Although many people admit to being afraid of color when it comes to fashion, sometimes I think people are equally afraid of being too neutral. I always have a tendency to want to add a color accent in my accessories, but this day I decided to embrace the basic.

Something else I’ve always been hesitant about is mixing bright white with cream, so to push myself even further, I layered two items with these colors right on top of each other. The outcome was really clean and fresh, and surprisingly worked!
