How do I wear earth tones?

I received this question from a reader:

Most of my outfits are based on blues and blacks. How do I wear earth tones?

This is what I shared with them:

Earth tones are fantastic color options, and we’re glad you’re considering them. Here are a few points to consider as you incorporate these hues into your existing wardrobe.

Each outfit should generally focus on either warm or cool tones. Cool earth tones include taupe, olive, sky blue, avocado, gray, and plum. Warm earth tones include beige, camel, yellow, ivory, chocolate, and pumpkin.

Vary the intensity of colors by building ensembles that include both dark and light shades, along with a splash of a brighter accent color.

While navy or black trousers will work with earth tones, wearing tan or taupe trousers are a better complement to colors from nature’s palette.
