Colour is key when picking an outfit and this year earth tones are making a comeback. Whilst always a timeless colourway and typically associated with autumn, this spring and summer you’ll find an abundance of this colourway displayed on wardrobe essentials to standout pieces from all our big name brands. Inspired by nature these hues range from earthy clay hues, warm neutrals to a play on moody green hues for an organic contrasting palette.
When you think of earth tones there is a sense of healing and of grounding with a nod to mother nature that produces a look of unwavering sophistication no matter what shades you combine. This colourway somehow manages to be bold and subtle, especially when you add textures and patterns into the mix. All the shades can easily be interchanged and complement each other, since its base hue is neutral allowing you to rotate the tones throughout your outfit while maintaining balance.
Whether you are ready to unearth earth tones from head to toe or throw a few key pieces into your rotation our Earth Tones Edit has all the latest and trending accessories, clothing and footwear to build the earth tone outfit of your dreams.
