Pants Styling

In pants, you can go for flared or tapered styles according to your preference. 

If you like to keep it airy and laid back, choose the flared ankle-length styles and if you like to show off the shape of your sexy legs, you can choose the tapered style.

There is no question of comfort here because the fabric would be cotton or linen; both of which are super comfy. You can also choose flared or tapered shorts for a cute and casual look.

In terms of colors, you can pair beige or brown bottom wear with white top wear or vice versa. Easy and feminine looking shirts work well with tapered styles and crop tops look great with flared styles. Be sure to carry a contrast-colored accessory to complete the look.

Skirts

One of the best ways to make neural colored skirts fun is to play with the silhouettes. 

There are loads of ways to spice up a simple mini skirt; for example with ruffles, with an asymmetrical hemline, with layers, with overlay details, with embroidery, with pleats, and with the prints.

You can even pair the same colored top and skirt and still make it interesting with such details. A while ruffled and layered mini skirt can go perfectly well with a cold-shouldered crop top.

If you’re a fan of basic silhouettes, you can pair contrasting colors to make it fun; a white mini pencil skirt and a brown top or a brown mini pencil skirt with a white top for instance.

Dresses

Dresses are perhaps the most fun outfits to style in neutral colors. 

You’d think it would be difficult to style them as there are no matching or pairing possibilities here. Hence the one way to make it fun is to play with the cuts, shapes, and silhouettes.

There is nothing sexier than a uniquely cut dress in plain white or beige for instance. In fact, neutral colors are one of the best ways for you to experiment with edgy silhouettes without worrying about looking too out there.

Suits

Neutral colors are most commonly associated with formal wear. Now that we have busted the myth and checked out super casual and fun neutral styles, let’s talk about work wear. 

Now there are usually three pieces in a conventional suit, so you can very well go for two pieces in the same color. If you’re planning to leave your blazer open, you can always use a popping bright color for your inner shirt.

If you’re planning to keep your skirt suit or pantsuit closed, a monochromatic look will render power and poise. 

Striped patterns are another way to make a suit more fun. For example, a white pinstriped pantsuit set will make you look elegant and serious.
