I had a great girlfriends dinner last night with two of my best gals. I was wearing my gold flats, and somehow, that launched us into a discussion on what WE use as neutrals in our shoes and wardrobes.
We have very different body types – hourglass here, one fit, petite pear, and one long and lean – and remarkably different styles, but we all agreed that neutrals are basically wardrobe staples that work with lots of things in one’s closet.
We all agreed that this season, metallic shoes are neutrals, office-friendly, and not limited to festive/dressy events. Then, we began to share personal preferences. A says teal is a neutral for her wardrobe. D says she loves greys and is currently mad for plum. For summer, we all reach for shades of pink to round out most any outfit – hot PANK to make a statement, pale pink to let some other part of an ensemble do the talking.
A and I both do have a lot of browns in our wardrobes. I’m not loving black at all these days, except as a foundation piece for something else. I try not to wear too much white, because it isn’t the most flattering for my coloring. What about you? Is there a color you’re really into this season?
My thoughts always turn to red and green about now, and I tend to favor gold over silver, even though I wear both in my jewelry! Do the seasons and/or holidays impact your color preferences?
