This lighter grey modern fit wool suit from Hugo will take you from the boardroom to a 5-star restaurant in style.  As with all neutrals, we like a white shirt and contrasting, not matching, tie. This can be a bold color or a deep classic like black or navy.

Neutrals: a Perfect Color Story for that Summer Heat & Beyond

We’ve been talking about summer pieces that work great with neutrals these past couple of weeks. Well, how about talking about those neutrals? In the summer, we usually have our stone and grey staples. This season though, those soft paloma greys and sandy beiges are more important than ever. They are in our core pieces, like shorts and linen blazers, but they are also being worn together and as accents in all parts of our wardrobes. And for a little fun, we are also seeing camouflage being used as a neutral for some summery pairings. These colors are all inspired by the nature of summer – sandy beaches, lush greenery. And they easily transition as the weather gets cooler. So, let’s get into it.

Throughout the week, pop over to our Fashion Finds to find more of our favorite neutrals to buy for work (Tuesday), after 5 (Wednesday), and casual wear (Thursday). And if you like something, just click on the “Shop It” button to buy it from our suggested retailer.

We are fans of Hugo Boss’s truly modern take on camouflage in this pixelated pattern and shades of grey. This is a skinnier tie, at 2” in width, and a fun way to update your dark suit and crisp white shirt.

A neutral ground dress shirt with color is important for the season, and we like how Hugo Boss ties in the soft tan color we’re talking about this week in this contemporary fitting version. You can see how easily it mixes with color, like yellow and blue. This color combination is an easy match to your neutral suits and sport coats – especially those sand/tan cotton or linens. It also becomes a great sport shirt for your neutral dress wool and cotton twill pants.

We know it is summer and wool sweaters are not top of mind, but we really like this lightweight wool from Vince. It is good for a cool summer night and perfect for the upcoming fall and winter seasons. The neutral light grey body with contrast shoulder and arm stripes (remember our athletic post a few weeks ago) makes this a nice casual top with jeans and twill pants. We recommend weating it with a t-shirt underneath.

We believe a neutral 5-pocket twill pant is an essential item in your wardrobe. And this one from J Brand is one of our favorites. This is the Tyler model, a contemporary but not super trim fit. The medium tan shade works with everything. This will be a “go-to” pair of pants in your closet. it is also available in really good light grey and dark grey options - both great universal colors, and both will easy work in the cooler weather, too.

We are seriously into this belt. It’s not your basic plain leather, but still remains subtle in its style. From Will Leather Goods, the embossed premium tanned leather gives a cool vintage feel to your jeans, cotton twill pants, and shorts – everything casual.

Neutral sandy tans and greys are important shades for shoes, too. From To Boot New York, this tan suede wing tip works perfectly with your tan linen and cotton suits and sport coats.
