Neutrals 2

As fahionista’s, we’re always searching for the new, hottest trends that are grazing fashion covers and blog sites everywhere. We won’t get caught dead wearing white after Labor Day or peep-toe pumps in winter. But what about the classic trends like pastels and florals that seem to be missed? Or my all-time favorite—neutrals! These are almost always the perfect go-to for a trendy night out, depending on the season.

Personally, I wear neutrals year-long because it grants such a luxe and simple look. Not to mention the fact that you can rock these swatches any season—day or night. But it can be difficult to remain neutral in such a bold world where everyone is fighting to stand out.  I am here to tell you, you can still own a room in your chic shades!

The greatest thing about neutral colors is they all pair very nicely together. I usually like to mix and match the warmer colors like tan and camel with the off-whites and cream colors. With camel being such a big color this season, you can almost find it in every variation. You usually can get a little cray with your lip color or opt for a printed neutral bag to bring a new flare to your neutrals. Trust me, you’ll never have a dull moment again! Here’s a little outfit inspiration for your next night out.

It’s a new year, which means it’s time for a new you (whatever that really means)! In addition to making over your closet and beauty repertoire, you might want to think about revamping your abode.

Now don’t get us wrong; we do love a good damask print every now and then, and openly coo for beautiful crystal chandeliers, but 2015 seems to be about loving all things black white with minimalist and sleek influences. Therefore, instead of glamming up your decor via an abundance of girlish touches, try paring things down and opting for a more modern-chic aesthetic.

Need some help getting started? Well, after gawking at the above image from CB2’s latest catalog, swap floral patterns for anything Mojave-inspired. And then trade Lucite and crystal for metal and wood. Finally, top it all off with sophisticated artsy tomes and ceramic trinkets. Think less boudoir and more study, and you’ll be there in no time. Plus, check out the key pieces we’ve suggested for you and don’t forget to have some fun! Happy decorating.
