Pantone, the authorities on all things color say that Neutrals are back. So....when did they leave? It's entirely conceivable that I may have missed the memo but Neutral colors have always been an ample staple in my wardrobe as well as in the jewelry I design. A natural palette immediately elicits a sense of calm and balance. I believe it's why many homeowners choose to use the softness and versatility of neutral colors on walls and in furnishings in rooms where a peacefulness is desired.
In fashions, neutrals literally go with everything. When you pair a neutral with a bright, vibrant color in the neon family, for instance, the look takes on a fun, modern twist. Likewise, dark and neutral colors wear well together for more confident, sophisticated looks. The Color Craze Style Board below highlights a few of my favorite Neutral fashions and accessories for the Summer season like Gemmy Jewels Bangle Bracelets and the versatile Sandy Beach Necklace. Take Neutrals with you into Fall!
