I don’t do neutrals
They’re so unflattering on someone as pale as me. A far cry from the stylish and harmonious vibe they’re supposed to convey, for sure. But I can achieve the same impact by wearing something monochromatic… in colour.
So, I wanted to create an outfit that looks neutral, with the colours blending in seamlessly, mixing soft berry tones, purple and a splash of bright pink.
This outfit looks casual yet put-together. Nothing stands out, but I don’t have to worry about fading into the background, either. There’s some pattern and different textures, yet the overall impression is very harmonious. The colours are very saturated, yet they look subtle and subdued.
Yes, you don’t need to wear neutrals: you can just fake them, in purple and pink and berry…

What do you think, is this outfit ‘neutral’ enough?
