Back to basics: neutrals for every palette

When you get your colour analysis, the emphasis can be very much on the colours. Leaf green, cobalt blue, raspberry red, mustard yellow and a host of others; all the colours in your palette can somewhat steal the show from the more sedate dove greys, chocolate browns and navy blues.

However, when it comes to real life (that bit that happens after you leave the stylist’s studio with the realisation that only three things in your wardrobe work for you), the neutrals in your palette will take on new importance. Whether your neutrals are merely the background to your beloved new brights or form the main even in themselves, getting them right will bring your look to life.

As with the brights, the neutrals for each colour palette are different and distinct, and understanding which ones work for you is key to getting your entire palette right. If you’ve had a colour analysis, just click on the link below to find out more about the neutrals for your season. And if you haven’t had a colour analysis (or taken our fun quiz to give you some ideas), read on to find out the best universal neutrals that will go with a range of brights.





If you haven’t had a colour analysis, I’ll wager that quite a lot of your wardrobe is either black, or perhaps grey marl, with plenty of white basics. Believe it or not, even though these are the most readily available neutral colours on the high street, there are better options out there for the vast majority of us.
