Trying to survive the heat this summer has really helped to entrench an existing fashion trend of incorporating more neutrals into your closet. Finding chic summer neutrals can be a difficult task, but this season it really isn’t impossible to find great summer neutral options that are distinctive while also being chic and stylish. We should also warn you, that white is a huge fashion trend this summer so today in honor of summer neutrals, we are focusing on great white pieces that will be must haves for warm summer weather.
First, the ultimate feminine short sleeve top, the Adore top by designer Velvet by Graham and Spencer is a top from Velvet’s baby jersey collection features a feminine cap sleeve with a slight pouf to it and a gathered collar in contrasting cotton fabric providing that added element of detail or fringe. This top is basic enough to wear with jeans and dressy enough to wear out at night. Naturally, this top is available in White, a great neutral color.
Next up, the Buffy Drape Cardigan by designer Velvet by Graham and Spencer, features a cotton voile drape cardigan with cotton around the neckline, shoulders and sleeves. The contrasting fabrics really give it that added gauzy look which makes it the perfect beach vacation throw or cardigan. Part of Velvet’s Cotton Voile Collection. The sleeves are 3/4 length and jersey cotton. The cardigan drapes in front with longer length in front than in back. This top is a great versatile neutral cardigan option that really can last into seasons with cool temperatures. Available in White and Rust, a coral color, the white is the best option for a neutral color this season.
Finally, consider the stylish Pintuck Empire top by Zooey by Alice Heller. This bohemian style vintage empire waist top is truly adorable and also very comfortable. We love the contrasting cotton voile fabric on the sleeves and body with a gauzy shirting fabric at the bottom of the sleeve, the collar and the center of the bodice. You’ll love the feel of the 100% supima cotton combined with the cotton shirting fabric it feels truly comfortable as it fits loose adding to its vintage style. It also helps to give this top a breathable fabric which makes it conducive to summer weather and of course it also works well for fall weather too. This top is also available in white our favorite neutral color this season.
As you can see, there are a number of great alternatives and options in white and of course there are other neutral colors out there for another post including taupe, beiges, ivory or cream colors just to name a few. Neutrals have had a recent resurgence, largely, I believe because of the goal of searching for pieces with added versatility beyond just one season due to the prevalent budget cuts that plague the current shopping market. Each of these options are also extremely wearable, comfortable and still manage to remain stylish despite the basic white fabric choice.
