Stepping out in a colorful outfit is an easy way to boost your mood, especially during this time of year. However, many people feel more comfortable in neutral colors.

Unfortunately, when some people think about neutral colors in fashion, they think they’re boring and uninteresting. However, there are so many ways to make neutral-colored outfits look more elegant and exciting.

If you feel more comfortable sporting neutral colors in your day-to-day style, here are some ways to help elevate your looks.

Embrace monochromes

A monochrome outfit consists of pieces that are all the same color. For instance, while pairing your favorite black turtleneck with blue jeans is classic, see what happens when you pair it with black trousers or a black skirt and boots.

An outfit of the same neutral color may sound a bit boring, but it can actually be very cool and chic. Take a look at your closet and see what articles of clothing you have in the same color. Put them together, and you’ll have a cohesive, stylish look.

Experiment with layering

Another way to make your neutral outfits pop is to practice layering. Not only will layering your outfit add some dimension, but you can also use it as an opportunity to wear different neutral shades in one look.

For instance, you can wear a neutral-colored blouse under a neutral cardigan in a darker shade. There’s also the option of wearing a knit sweater or vest under a neutral-colored long-sleeve shirt. Just remember to keep an eye out for your silhouette and layer your clothes in a way that complements your body type.
