This season the fashion crowd have been rocking a rainbow of crayola brights and don’t get us wrong, here at OTL we’re totally into it but there’s something rather chic about a more subdued colour palette don’t you think? We’re not suggesting dull browns or boring beige, but rather earthy hues and neutral tones that will transition throughout the seasons and bring us all back down to earth in style. 

You might think that brown isn’t the most inspiring colour out there, but this humble hue doesn’t have to be drab. Opt for a rich and luxurious shade of auburn that will attract the right kind of attention. The beauty lies in its ability to compliment every skin tone and provide a utility vibe to whatever it’s adorning. Pair with white to ensure this piece works for the warmer season. 

Green means go, right? If you’re into emerald but a bright shade leaves you feeling more Shrek than chic, a natural mossy tone is the one for you. Elevate this earthy shade by choosing a sumptuous fabric and a contrasting stripe that delivers a warm, yet soft undertone. Keep your beauty golden and accessories neutral. 

Yellow is a colour often reserved for the under 10s, but in an earthy shade and in the right fabric, yellow can be super sophisticated. A deeper tone of mustard is going to make you stand out for all the right reasons, especially when it’s in a faux leather and a utility shape. Let the structured silhouette of this shirt provide the chic and the playful hue provide the party. 

You can’t get more neutral than taupe, however we definitely aren’t sitting on the fence about it. This is the perfect palette to keep any outfit tonal and fresh and is best when used with interesting shapes and textures. Opt for ruching, frills and leather to give this shade some edge and don’t forget to add a pop of colour within your accessories to give your look a little extra punch.
