This winter (yes, I know it’s technically still fall) I’ve been really digging dressing in neutral shades. Just because you’re in head-to-toe neutrals doens’t mean your outfit can’t make a statement. Au contraire mon frère – you can make a very stylish statement in your neutral outfit. Here are three tips for styling your very stylish neutral outfit.

1. Mix and match lots of neutrals

The best part of neutrals? They work so well with other neutrals. Think outside of the box – neutral doesn’t have to mean just black, white and grey. You can also reach for soft beiges, a versatile khaki green, blush pink, burgundy and camel browns. All of these shades are actually neutrals that can be mixed and matched with each other to created a deep, rich look.

2. Add a piece of statement jewelry
 

Statement jewelry doesn’t have to be chock-full of bright colors and sparkling gems. Take this plain gold statement necklace from Stella & Dot. Gold goes with basically everything and the fringe shape goes perfectly with any crewneck or turtleneck top.

3. Play with patterns and textures

Granted my outfit is pattern-free, but in theory you could mix different patterns in neutral shades. You can also play with texture when styling an all-neutral outfit. My cashmere sweater is soft and supple while my denim is a bit more stiff. My hat’s chunky knit compliments my smooth scarf perfectly. You get the picture.
