As much as we love bold colors and fun prints, there’s just something about neutrals that says “summer glam.”
Neutrals are easy, classic and – with a few simple tweaks – fresh. You can create an effortlessly stylish summer wardrobe of neutrals and never get bored. And since we’re all trying to break the fast-fashion habit, you can’t go wrong investing in some key neutral pieces you can wear through several seasons.
Need more convincing? Here are some reasons we love neutrals:
- Getting ready is a snap since they all look good together
- It’s easy to look put-together, whether you’re walking the dog or brunching with friends
- There are endless combinations – especially with accessories
Not sure where to begin? This palette of light beige, muted deep blue, blush and earth tone oranges is a good starting place. Pick one or all five to start incorporating now and check out our styling tips.
Neutrals Tip #1: Let accessories do the talking
A lightweight summer dress in cream like this one from Revolve is the perfect foundation piece. It’s so easy to dial the look up or down with the right accessories. With flip flops, it’s a fun day look. When the sun goes down, pair it with a set of layered gold necklaces (we love this set from Kendra Scott) and slip on our chic Patricia wedge – you’re ready for wherever the evening takes you.

Neutrals Tip #2: Just add texture
Nothing sets off a luxe neutral shade like texture and pattern. Choose a simple, elegant piece like this linen-blend slip dress from Abercrombie as your base. For day time, add interest with a textured bag in another neutral shade. (We love this woven carryall from Anthropologie.) If you’re going for a more elevated look, pair this slip dress with the effortless glamor of our Haru Blush Slide.
