Falling for Neutrals
Posted by on March 14, 2012 | 1:44 pm EST

With gothic blacks, royal blues, and all sorts of deep and bold shades flooding the Fall/Winter shows, we couldn’t help but question the absence of soft neutrals to counter it all. Although the season indeed calls for a bevy of comfortably warm clothes, Fashion Glamour plucked out select pieces from the Fall/Winter shows which refreshingly braved the season’s chills.


We were swept away with this heavenly lace dress from Chloé. The soft and sheer aesthetic offered a welcome departure from the heavy fabrics we usually encounter during the season. With a simple blazer or trench to top this ensemble, the winter blues can indeed be tamed down.

The Row

The Row has always thrived in its simple but chic aesthetics, which is perfectly embodied in this dress from their winter collection. The floor-grazing length offers a sense of subdued warmth, albeit the center slit.

Theyskens’ Theory

Allow us to use and abuse the two words that are often associated with Theyskens’ Theory: urban cool. This casual look provides enough coverage from the chill without compromising style. We love the gold trims on the blazer which adds a pop of sunshine to the casual look Olivier Theyskens has created.

Emilio Pucci

This lavish peach-and-neutral collision from Emilio Pucci made us want the winter season to come back—fast. The contrasting finish—sheer and shine—on this look merges the softness we’re looking for, and the inviting warmth of those high-waist pants.


Thakoon took minimalism to heart in this trench, with a slight nod toward the padded hips trend. The city-chic color received a pop of color courtesy of the purple leopard-printed collar.
