4725mag's latest fashion crush: neutral on neutral color and texture play
Nothing says spring like a closet full of dark clothing... we jest. However, whatever the season, you will find us sporting a neutral - and most likely a dark neutral - with every single outfit.
Today is a classic blue sky, yet breezy and quite chilly bay area day on both sides of the bay - even our beloved "sunny side" home, Oakland. Sunglasses and long sleeves are a must.
Our most beloved, beautifully worn in and faded to a deep slate perfection Levi's Made and Crafted jeans were freshly laundered, so we were obviously going to wear those (again) and our Banana Republic vegan leather, jet black sweatshirt - fresh from the dry cleaner - was hanging, looking quite pretty might we add, on the closet door.
Born out of convenience - and honestly, what was clean - ladies and gentlemen, meet the base of our neutral on neutral outfit.
It's no secret, we heart Vans. These deep navy slip-ons are firmly in the sneaker rotation. Not only are they neutral in color, these bad boys also play with texture - mirroring the theme of the vegan leather on denim look we have going on above the ankle.
With a nubuck upper and suede heel, we adore this subtle texture mix in this neutral tone.
We could've gone all-out today accessorizing our plain outfit, but we understood that the subtle textures from our fabric mixing and the neutral on neutral color palate chosen spoke for itself. However, what was needed and what we always carry regardless, is a solid, outfit enhancing pair of sunglasses.
These new favorites from Acne Studios are crafted from slick acetate with a matte, textured exterior. That contrast made them extra ideal for todays thematic.
Moral of this story? Neutrals never have to be boring. Play with layering like colors, never shy away from texture and new style territories will be yours to win.
