I hardly ever wear neutrals. Not that I don’t like it. For example, I think neutrals look fabulous on Laurie. She wears it with such elegance too. But I don’t think it looks very good on me. I am a high contrast autumn type. I also learned it from a pro! But what high contrast mean for your use of color, apart from the fact that the autumn colors suit me very well.
I need a high contrast in my face or outfit
A high contrast type does need some strong colors. Not only am I a high contrast autumn type, also muted colors work best for me. For example, a soft color lipstick will only look good on me if I have a smokey eye and my face is heavily tinted! And I really need a good amount of color on my lips when I wear few different colors. So I can wear these neutrals, but then I need some makeup. A strong color on my lips, a bit of a smokey eye etc. A contrasting necklace. Also if I wear a monochrome look, I need some contrast.
I am wearing neutrals for a change
I bought these trousers last season and I wore them often, they are so soft as you can read here. Then I wore it with black. I can easily wear these trousers during spring, because I actually found them to thin for the winter. This neutral color combines very good with white. I hardly ever wear white, especially no white trousers or skirts. But I make an exception for these trousers. The top has great puff sleeves, I love a statement sleeve. And for the contrast, I wear a black statement necklace, close to the face. And a good strong and bold lipstick.
Try to work with contrasts yourself. Find out if you are a low or high contrast type and play with it. Nice to see what effect it has! For my Dutch readers I have a link to a site with a very clear explanation about contrast types. For my English-speaking readers I have a link here.
