Though neutral shades of sand, cream and khaki have a reputation for being the safe no-fail option—I think they are among the hardest to wear.

I hear it all the time from friends, “Oh, I couldn’t possibly wear that colour…” yet, they are always dressed in dull, washed out shades of beige. To me, getting the right neutral for your skin tone is far trickier than choosing your favourite colour.

Full disclosure? I don’t subscribe to any colour theory—ie. I don’t believe that we should dress to a specific “season” or stay within a strict palette—if you love it, wear it. Obviously there are colours that stand out beside your hair colour and skin tone, but if it’s your favourite shade—you’ll make it work.

A bright colour instantly makes the outfit—no need to accessorize. If mixing your colours causes you stress—stick with one bright shade per outfit—like here on Nicole Richie. She’s paired simple neutral accessories with this flirty yellow frock.
