How to Wear The Trend: Earth Tones

March 19, 2019

Earth Tones

Earth tones are not something that I used to be a fan of, especially the brown ones. I thought that being brown-skinned myself, wearing earth tones would get me in danger of disappearing into my clothes.

But I’ve since changed my mind. I think there’s an air of sophistication about mixing shades of neutrals (and I’m counting my skin color as one of those shades). Here are some tips on how to wear the trend.

Mix colors, but keep it simple
To keep the high level of refinement, I would shy away from patterns. I’ve got three colors going on here, which is more than plenty

Don’t forget about the accessories
Gold accessories goes great with earth tones. Another fun idea is to have colored stones that compliments the colors of your outfit. You don’t have to spend an arm and a leg on them too. The plastic marble earrings I paired this outfit with is only $4.99

Need a pop of color? Do it with your lipstick
Red lipstick goes great with pretty much everything, but it’s especially flattering when paired with earth toned outfits.

    Truth be told, I’m still not a fan of this look on myself, but I do like how it looks on others, especially those with darker hair!
