Happy Tuesday, friends. I thought today I would show you how I wear summer neutrals.
I concur that I wear colors more than anything, but this year, I am completely enjoying summer neutrals.
I have found myself in these types of styles often.
However, for someone like me who is a vibrant autumn palette, the challenge is to not succumb to the all popular black and white. It is not my best.
So, let me share how I prefer to wear summer neutrals.
HOW I WEAR SUMMER NEUTRALS: THINK TAN AND NOT WHITE
Summer neutrals for me lately have been built around tans and creamy off-whites rather than white-white.
I do wear a lot of navy blue rather than black, but recently have been into styling the tan colors more.
I first shared this silk poncho with you months ago with black denim, and it photographs better outside than inside.
But, the print is lovely and it is a cool piece for warm summer months. It is from my favorite local boutique, so I am sorry I cannot link to it.
In the top picture, I am wearing it with those jeans from yesterday…I wear them often now. Ming Wang Stretch Denim Slim Leg Pull-On Ankle Jeans.
Women who wear autumn palette colors, look for a light tan pant or bottom like this for a summer neutral. It is a perfect fit in your warm palette wardrobe.
The sandals in the top picture are the ones I found at a local consignment shop for the rehearsal dinner outfit.
Here are other options for pants that are “not white” and at lower price points:

HOW I WEAR SUMMER NEUTRALS: MIX SHADES OF OFF WHITE
San Antonio is well into 100 degree weather again, but a couple of weeks ago, I was able to wear this summer neutral outfit to church for a meeting.
I like mixing pieces that are similar, yet slightly different in color, like this Banana Republic blazer and top. Both pieces were in past sales on the outlet site.
When I put them on with JJILL Boyfriend Jeans, I felt like my sneakers were perfect…we also have a large church so I knew walking comfort was needed.
I like these jeans and wear the lighter wash often during the summer to go with my summer neutrals…sometimes I wear them cuff up and then sometimes cuff down.
Here are a few blazers (and a couple extra styles) in summer neutrals:
HOW I WEAR SUMMER NEUTRALS: BRAND WATCH
The honeymooners sent this cool picture from their trip, so I felt like it was a perfect fit for today’s topic of summer neutrals.
There are some brands I watch more than others for the types of summer neutrals I like. Here are my current favorites that I look at often:
Thank you for joining me today to see how I wear summer neutrals. There are times that I love a softer touch than my vibrant colors…though I do love them too.
