This week, we wanted to take a moment to appreciate the importance of having neutral colours in your wardrobe. Our greys, whites, creams and blacks are tiny presents from above when it comes to versatility, flexibility and matching our existent closet--which makes them an essential colour all year-round. Now that we're starting to see warmer tones outside, why not add one to our wardrobe? Like our go-to universal colour this spring and summer...taupe! Not only does this fabulous colour suit just about everyone, but it comes with a lot of promises to your wardrobe as well. It promises to never be too dark, too light, too warm or too cool and it'll promise to never let you down (now that's husband material). To show you why this colour is a must-have, Thyda from Suburbia Hair Spa is back with two looks that will rise to the 'taupe' for any occasion.
Look #1: Lace-up 'Taupe'
Whether you're a Kardashian or not, the trend of the lace-up top is everywhere. The 70s inspired detail adds the right amount of sultry and sexy to your overall outfit and works great in a taupe colour. This LNA Clothing 'Esperenza Sweater' can be easily paired with your favourite skinny jeans or denim cut-offs and its blank slate gives you the option to play with textures and patterns with your accessories, like we did with this Tyoulip Sisters 'Reptile Pure Clutch'.
Jeans: Fidelity - Mila Crop - $275.00 | Top: LNA Clothing - Esperenza Sweater - $195.00
Purse: Tyoulip Sisters - Reptile Pure Clutch - $225.00 | Shoes: EMU Australia - $167.00
Look #2: Tunic 'Taupe'
This Bailey 44 tunic is full of versatility. Because of its long slit, you can pair it with jeans, tights or even cut-offs. To get the most out of your taupes, it's important to know that they can be brightened up with gold and silver accessories, depending on your skin tone (warmer skin tones=gold, cooler skin tones=silver). By adding both gold necklaces, it brightens Thyda's overall look by adding a soft sparkle and glow that accentuates her beautiful skin tone.
Tunic: Bailey 44 - Go Your Own Way - $304.00 | Pants: Bailey 44 - Outplay Pant - $99.00
Necklaces: C PAK - Tassel - $44.00 | Mimi & Marge - Horseshoe - $72.00
