Kelly’s Chic Under $100: Earth Tones.

Sometimes I’ll see those chic women on Instagram who only seem to own things in one colorway. Usually it’s millennial pink and white, but sometimes shades of grays and black, and lately I’ve been seeing shades of oranges and yellows. It got me thinking about how they must shop exclusively with that color in mind which must, one, be really tough (and frankly kind of boring), and two, be an interesting experiment in restraint to maintain a versatile wardrobe. I mean, when everything lives in the same shades, surely it must all match.

Earth tones live in that space, but have a little more variety. From leafy olive greens to clay mauve-pinks, they mix and match with each other without feeling too monochrome. I’ve got my eye on this tan tie-front top to pair over trousers now and over shorts on warmer days, and a fun tassel-trim tank from Current/Elliott’s big sister line The Great paired with this lovely straw bag.

  1. Earth tones are my favourite shades to wear lately. If you look at the latest outfit posts on my blog, I’m always wearing neutrals! They’re just so easy to work into an outfit and always look so chic. 🙂
