Those trends (color and print) come and go, but neutral pieces that can be mixed and match are forever!
I think mixing different neutrals creates a chic look that is soothing to the eye.
Your basic checklist of chic neutrals pieces:
Black jeans/white jeans
Neutral skirts (gray/black/white)
Black tee/white tee/grey tee
Anything black and white striped
Because all of these can go together in multiple ways you are set up with many looks that will never go out of style!!
