They suit every woman and that is certainly some good news. Natural tones enhance our beauty and skin tone in a, well, natural way. They’re always a welcome choice, which becomes a must in the summer. Cream, white, powder, and all shades of brown fall into this category. You can style them with either white or darker colours, such as blue and black, but they look best and stand out most when you opt for the head-to-toe version.
Women are often reluctant to wear them, perhaps because the presumption that light colour optically widens us is still very much prevails in our thoughts. Natural tones always look sophisticated and elegant, which makes them the perfect choice for a special event, a wedding, for instance. If this is the case, leave the white and beige to the bride and opt for a different shade, but still a light one. Accessories can be in a contrasting colour, or, if you dare, choose only the shoes, belt and handbag in a light colour. Cream is another useful option alongside powder, which is an evergreen. Don’t think for a second that this is only an option in the summer; you can wear a grey suit in the winter, and still style it with light colour accessories. There’s nothing wrong with that ‒ on the contrary, it will bring freshness to the look. When it comes to accessories, stay with the classics: pearls are remarkably beautiful and they won’t age you a bit … Opt for a longer string of pearls, very Chanel and very appealing.
Stripes and animal prints can look just as pleasing, because they can be natural and low-key. Since this summer is all about florals, you can opt for a subdued print on a cream background. Try styling your look with cream sunglasses or brooches, which are a beautiful addition to blazers this seaso . And this brings me to the unavoidable light blazer that you can wear with jeans, even white ones. What’s important is to lose fear of light tones and embark on a summer adventure of freshness and elegance … We can truly forget about dark shades at least for a couple of months and focus on neutrals. I believe we won’t regret it.
