Fresh, chic and expensive looking, the neutral trend is perfect for putting the spring in your step this season! Beloved by celebrities like Kim Kardashian – who pulls the look off head-to-toe and looks flawless – and seen on the Spring Summer 2015 catwalks from designers including Victoria Beckham, there is a shade to suit all skin tones: from palest peach for fair skin, to warm camel for darker skin.
Whether you want to introduce the trend with subtle accessories, or try head-to-toe for a gorgeously streamlined look, there are plenty of ways to wear this look that needn’t come with the designer price-tag. Read on for our seven top picks – each priced at an amazing £5!
1. Peachy Skater
Lightest peach will complement fair skin as well as make dark skin really ‘pop’. For a sexy party look, try a skater dress like the Lace Insert Skater Dress that flatters hips by flaring out and features a sheer lace panel for a hint of skin. Continue the theme with a neutral pair of heels and subtly shimmery makeup.
2. Fluffy Knit
Chunky, fluffy cardigans are enjoying a comeback, and are an easy way to give a pair of jeans an instantly on-trend look (as well as being really cosy!). Try a Fluffy Knit Longline Jacket in a soft beige.
The traditional satchel gets a high-fashion makeover! Accessorise with a Transparent Large Satchel to bring some unique neutral styling to your look.
4. Peter Pan Blouse
Team a Peach Peter Pan Collared Shirt with a pair of jeans for a smart-casual daytime look, or wear with a beige pencil skirt for an elegant and sophisticated evening look. A staple wardrobe item that looks chic and expensive in a neutral shade!
5. Nude Maxi
For the ultimate summer holiday look, a nude coloured maxi dress is just the evening number to set off your tan. We’re loving the Pearl Embellished Neck Maxi Dress which has a touch of the sixties Betty Draper evening look about it, with its classic shift shape and embellished neckline.
6. Bandeau Jumpsuit
The neutral trend is all about simplicity: clean lines and minimal accessorising – making this Bandeau Jumpsuit perfect! Simply team with a statement necklace and cute clutch, and the outfit will do the talking for you!
7. Neutral Wedges
Woman’s best friend and secret weapon, a neutral pair of shoes lengthen and slim legs and are especially flattering for banishing the dreaded look of ‘cankles’. These Faux Leather Pink Wedge Shoes have a comfortable mid-wedge and will look great with pencil skirts, jeans and dresses.
