Fashion Translation: Neutrals with a Twist

Apologies if this post feels a bit retro again, but I just can’t help myself! This season, it feels like vintage hues are here to stay, not to mention pulled-from-the-’70s style inspiration. Right now, I find myself drawn to the colors: burnt orange, terracotta, olive drab, shades of khaki and taupe. When combined, I feel like these tones are harmonious in an unexpected version of neutrals.

I simply find myself tiring of deep, dark, rich tones — instead, I’m craving neutrals that can be mixed and match. No longer do I want simply white and black. Rather, this season I’m all about shades of ivory as my new base color. From there, I pile on additional washed out hues. Even my pop colors feel neutral. Plus, how special is this bluish shade of grey? For me, that really tips the color palette into new territory.

Fashion Translation: Just a Bit Retro

Fashion is cyclical, right? What’s old becomes new again and vice versa. Sometimes it feels like I’ve just put away my high-waisted flared jeans when they are about come back. One style that feels like it’s recently reemerged in multiple variations is the retro ’70s vibe. We know this look well: satin baseball jackets, ringer tees, high waisted denim, embroidered patches… I could go on and on and on.

If there’s one color that stands out in my mind as being totally on trend for this evolution of retro style, it would be tangerine orange. Actually, all shades of orange feel on-trend to me when it comes to this style, but I’m loving how fresh and new tangerine feels. Maybe it’s thanks to the doldrums of winter? Either way, I’m loving it and definitely plan to incorporate more of this happy hue into both my home and wardrobe.

I also love the secondary colors that this shade of orange is paired with: pale pink, lavender and navy blue being my absolute favorites. The feeling of these rugs is a bit boho and found-in-a-faraway-flea-market, don’t you think?
