In this new series, Wardrobe Essentials, I introduce the most basic items that every successful wardrobe need. Key pieces are great for mix and match your outfits and always look chic and radiant.
The colors are icy and moderately vivid but while the Summer shades are on the softer, the Winter colors are clearer.
The recommended neutral and basic colors for Cool women
The best neutral colors for Cool Summers are; soft white or ivory, medium and charcoal grays, and navy.
The best neutral shades for Cool Winters are; white, black, cool grays and navy as well.
Note: neutral colors typically include black, white, gray, navy and brown shades. The combination of these colors creates a sophisticated and polished look. However, neutrals look great with other colors as well.
Basic colors are mostly the shades of the main colors on the color wheel like yellow, orange, blue, green or red. If you want a colorful but minimalist wardrobe – choose a couple of basic shades so you can have always matching outfits.
