You may think that camel and grey don’t quite go well together, but in actuality, mixing different neutrals is a great way to add an interesting visual contrast to an otherwise simple look.
Grey is what’s known as a cooler hue, while camel is a warmer tone. In typical fashion guidelines, it’s usually recommended to not wear these two tones together, since they can be direct clashes with one another, but I’ve come to realize that they can actually go quite nicely together.
The key to getting these two colors to work together is to have a color to bridge the two together, and for this particular camel and grey combination, a soft ivory makes the perfect connection. Considered as a somewhat more “neutral” shade, ivory doesn’t really belong in the warm or cool family. Depending on what you pair it with, this color can actually blend in quite nicely with everything.
While camel is warm, ivory doesn’t directly clash with it, and instead, fits right in. At the same time, grey and ivory aren’t exactly a bad combo together. With all three of these colors together, this look has a certain visual depth without being too over the top.
I love how understated and effortless this look is. With skinny jeans, a fuzzy cropped sweater, and sneakers, the ensemble pairs classics together for a minimal look that’s brought together with a statement longline coat. In playing with color contrast, we keep the outfit timeless and classic, using different neutral tones to create visual interest instead.
