You know I am the queen of neutrals. I wear a lot of black, a lot of blush, a lot of nude, as well as white. One of my favorite pairs of shoes are my white Gucci-esque loafers…however I’ve been finding myself leaning towards darker pairs of shoes lately, like black, gold, and nude. I started making mental notes of what I was pairing those white shoes with and why they looked weird to me with some outfits.
AND THEN IT ALL CLICKED.
It all has to do with hair. Yep, hair color. When I was blonde, I wore so much more white. I even wore white sunglasses, which now look really harsh on me. I tested this theory out, and shopping for neutrals that match your hair really works if you’re trying to discover your neutral color. Mine is nude/blush. My hair is a dark BRONDE (it’s a color, okay?) right now, so I can switch it up between darker colors like black and dark brown as well. But the overall color of my hair matches nude clothing and accessories so well.
I like to sprinkle in nudes throughout my outfits. Maybe it’s a nude top with any color on bottom, paired with nude shoes. Or a colorful outfit with nude accessories. Just let the look be balanced and I promise you will look so put together.
If your hair is dark, invest in darker items – black will never do you wrong. If you are bronde or have lighter brown hair, go for the nudes, grays, and even a light shade of olive green. If you’re blonde, well aren’t you lucky! Go for whites and light blushes.
