Simple, neutral garments are not just practical, they are also elegant and timeless. Plus, outfits in light, neutral colors such as beige reflect heat, keeping you cool in the summer heat. If you want to blend casual with classy, neutral pieces of clothing make great building blocks for a whole range of looks – simply add a more colorful accessory such as a chunky necklace or a pair of sunglasses to make your look pop. Here are a few tips from the founder of www.StyleSpring.co.uk to inspire you this summer season.
The Shirt Over Dress Look
Oversized white shirts should be a part of the wardrobe of any self-respecting fashionista. Not only are they light and comfortable, they also provide perfect protection in case the evening gets chilly after sunset. Shirts made from cotton or linen are your best bet as they are breathable enough to keep you cool all day long.
Pair your shirt with a simple summer dress in neutral hues for an understated, yet stylish, summer aesthetic. For an ultra-casual look, keep the shirt unbuttoned. You can even tie it at the front for a chic summery vibe. This outfit goes well with a pair of light-colored sneakers.
Add a Splash of Color
While you can rest assured that a neutral look will never go out of style, sometimes you just want your outfit to stand out in the crowd. And making a statement in neutral garments is easier than you may think. Depending on the occasion, you can add a colorful scarf or a summer hat to elevate what usually would be a monochrome look. Alternatively, accessorize your outfit with a colorful blazer or a pair of heels.
Don a Pair of Overalls
A neutrally-hued T-shirt looks amazing with a pair of darker overalls. And overalls usually look their best when paired with simple garments. Not surprisingly matching these two garments are a match made in heaven. Alternatively, invest in a pull-on jumpsuit, an item of clothing that is not only stylish but also super quick to put on and take off. Top of this chic look with a pair of darker slip-on sandals. And if you really want to take things a step further, pair it with a trendy bag
Spruce up Your Outfit with a Denim Jacket
While you may not always need a jacket on summer days, some evenings can be surprisingly cold, particularly if you live in the UK. As such, it is always a good idea to have a jumper handy – especially if you know you will be staying out after sundown. Combining a basic summer dress with a denim jacket is a time-tested favorite that may never go out of style. Not only does this pairing give a little extra warmth if required, but the extra layer will also add an element of intrigue to an otherwise more innocent look.
