The best neutrals for your Color Code

You know how much I love color but neutrals are essential to a functional wardrobe so here’s the scoop on

the best neutral colors for your Color Code.

Let me be clear. I refer to purple, emerald green, true red and turquoise as “neutral” colors because they are neither warm nor cool.

What I’m talking about here are colors in a neutral palette meaning beige, gray, white and brown.

The fact is, every wardrobe needs some neutral pieces. Even if you’re like me and LOVE color, you still need a black tee or a pair of white linen pants that will allow you to mix and match your outfits.

As a disclaimer, the basics in your wardrobe like dress pants, blazers and jackets don’t HAVE to be in a neutral color! 

When I give you your Signature Color, I make sure you have two to four neutral colors. Sticking to those is the key to a streamlined and flexible wardrobe.

Discover your Signature Color by clicking here. It’s just $97 and all the information about your best neutrals PLUS your wardrobe color palette are included.

Ideally, you’d choose one or two neutral shades to stick to (black and white, for example) for a mix-and-match wardrobe.

This is an example of a neutral wardrobe. You’ll see a lot of brown, white and gray with some denim blue and little pink mixed in.

So when it comes to choosing dress pants or a basic layering tee, do you know what color to choose?

Let me present the best neutral colors for your Color Code.
