Some people will say “beige is boring”. Well, the counter is that neutrals, like beige, are an essential part of every wardrobe.
Especially for fall, neutrals can pair well with the season’s warm jewelry tones. Or with basics like navy, brown and black, but they also coordinate for a chic and monotonous look.
The addition of texture, such as fleece, and the pattern with a plaid further accentuate the many ways to wear neutrals and not be boring.
Neutrals are defined as hues, as opposed to actual colors, so they generally don’t appear on the color wheel. By adding a touch of tint to white, neutrals such as beige, cream, ivory, tan, taupe and camel emerge.
