Beige Brigade

Didn’t you hear? Neutral is the new black! Whether it be cream, taupe, fawn, stone, nude, beige, or anything in between, neutral colours are oh so hot right now! I can’t even walk down the street without something neutral catching my eye! I mean, look at how many neutral goodies are in this post! They’re taking over! And thank god, because black is soooo 2009.

All of the items below are amazing, and I thought I’d mention some of my favs. I stumbled across this Witchery Sequin Sweater this week and instantly fell in love. I like the ¾ length sleeves and the lines upon lines of sequins. You’d be quite the nautical jazzy lady when wearing this! The Camilla and Marc Cherry Frock is just stunning. I’m loving the lace & shoulder pads, plus I like the length of the sleeves - perfect for all seasons! I really want the American Apparel Jersey Cross-V Bodysuit; I probably wouldn’t wear it like this while out & about (I won’t lie to you, I’d definitely crank this look at home), instead I’d pair it with a pretty skirt and heels. And by the way, WHEN are they opening a store here? It’s been too long! I also love the Vionnet Sculptural Silk Pants (trés garçon chic) & the Burberry Double Breasted Trench Coat (their website is amazing, check it out if you haven’t already)! Hell, I love all the pieces below, I could rant about them forever but I won’t, so happy drooling.

They say that you should wear neutral tones that are at least one shade lighter (or darker) than your skin colour so that you don’t take the nude look too literally. You cheeky little nudies!

Hope you’re all having a good day!
