Style tip?  In a season of economic uncertainty, we’re turning back to basics, and the color palette of the season is reflecting our economic reality.  Neutrals are the big color story (or anti-color story, as it were) of the season.  Stock up on khaki, sand, and grey colors - which are just as appropriate for Spring 2010 as they are for Fall.  How to make these neutrals interesting?  Increase the visual appeal of neutrals with some careful layering.  After all, the beauty of neutrals are that they all go together.

What do you think?  How would you wear neutral colors?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

    Love the Costello Tagliapietra dress! It’s a beautifull color and so visually interesting.

    Completely agree, Katie. Even though this season has been pretty neutral color-wise, that doesn’t mean that the colors are boring. We’re seeing some gorgeous shades of sand, khaki, and grey. And the beauty of it is that these pieces will be relevant for seasons to come.

    I also love the Tagliapetra.

    Regarding how to wear neutrals: I generally prefer more visual interest with neutrals, so I try to include something with pattern(s) or texture(s), or else an accessory that really stands out. Neutrals are a great way to show off art jewelry.

    A great thing about wearing neutrals is you can accessorize your outfits with color to achieve many different looks.
