From Couture Gowns to Laid Back Outfits, Neutral Tones are Chic

 - Oct 20, 2011
Forget prints, patterns and bold colors; this season, neutral hues are more popular than ever, to the delight of die hard fans of minimalism like myself.

While mixing prints and wearing head-to-toe neon might seem to be popping up on red carpets and in magazine editorials everywhere (thanks for that, Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry), the quickest and easiest way to always remain chic and refined is by wearing neutral colors.

Minimalism doesn't mean you have to drench yourself in black clothing. Instead, pairing muted, neutral colors in slightly different shades can be just as dramatic and effective. Don't believe me? Just take a look at fashion houses like Chloe, Celine and Burberry. The classic trench coat is perhaps the most iconic and unappreciated item of clothing there is.

Have a look through this collection of neutral-colored fashions for some inspiration.
