Earth Tones Can Warm the Gloomy Season

The winter months are often a drab time for fashion as vibrant colors give way to mournful black. But earth tones such as beige, brown, and gold can help the fashion-conscious maintain a touch of elegance and sophistication in the slushy streets.

Beige may not be eye-catching, but it is a versatile color and easy to wear as it resembles the color of skin. It is elegant, mellow and luxurious. For a soft, feminine look, match it with a simple pearl necklace or a beige watch, and add just one or two bold splashes of color.

Brown represents the earth and is a calm and casual color. It goes well with yellowish skin tone of Asians, so is ideal for those who want to look warm and luxurious, especially matched with beige or red.
