How to Style Neutral Colors: Blush and Beige

How to Style Neutral Colors: Blush and Beige

Style Neutral Colors

The soft, neutral colors of blush and beige pair perfectly together. We often here the term “neutral colors,” but what exactly does that term mean? In fashion, neutral colors include hues like beige, black, gray, brown, ivory, taupe and white. Neutral usually means “without color,” and specifically highlights the colors you don’t find on a color wheel. These neutral, earthy hues can be mixed with the slightest amount of vibrant color, to create faint undertones of navy blue, dusty pink, charcoal gray and muted yellow.

Furthermore, in color theory, a tint is the mixture of a color with white, which increases lightness, and a shade is the mixture of a color with black, which reduces lightness. A tone is produced either by the mixture of a color with gray, or by both tinting and shading. There really is a method to this color-mixing madness and below I will explain my insanity a little more!

When styling neutral colors, they can be paired with similar, light hues such as white and beige or beige and taupe, or contrasted with a light tint and dark shade such as brown and beige or grey and black. As a fashion lover, style blogger and sartorial mixologist, it is fun to try pairing colors together to see what looks good. One of my favorite flawless looks is the beige, tape, and ivory combination. A camel jacket, a tan sweater and some white denim will always be so timeless to me.

I styled this blush and beige outfit by pairing this soft and slouchy knit sweater with my new favorite blush wide leg pants, which are only $20! I layered on some of my stackable Gorjana rings and paired my jewels with one of my favorite Madewell necklaces that I’ve had for years. For a contrast of materials I styled this look with my rose Gigi New York ‘Catie’ bag that I got at New York Fashion Week. Oh and yes, my initials do spell TEA 🙂 I can’t wait to style these pieces with other items in my wardrobe. In a perfect world I’d be shopping, styling and shooting all day! Oh a girl can dream…

Styling a neutral color palette is part of my new wardrobe revolution. This season I am trying to aim for a neutral palette and grow my collection from there, essentially everything will match! As I mentioned in my outfit post, Autumn Color: Camel and Maroon, I think the shades camel, maroon, dusty rose, nude and brown all mix perfectly. It is always fun to dive out a little bit and try other colors, but this season I’m trying to stay focused! I think one of my biggest fashion flaws is buying that one crazy stand-out item that will sit in my closet with the tag on for years. With a neutral colored-wardrobe, styling will never be an issue! I’m trying to start with the basics and work my way up.
