8 Ways To Incorporate Earthy Tones Into Your Wardrobe
Imagine damp umber fall leaves, the fragrant browns of the mud after the first rain, olives of the late summer leaves, dusky marigold and misty folklore kinds of woods — there you have the most timeless colour scheme. And though, often associated with the fall season, earthy tones go beyond trends or seasons. In the year gone by when everything was uncertain, some people found solace in bonding with nature in more ways than one. And since earth shades are drawn from nature, they are an extension of the grounding we so desperately seek.
The earth tone colour palette is vast, so there is plenty of opportunity for mixing and experimenting. Fundamentally, earth tones are browns, tans, umber, burgundy, brick red, yellow ochre, terracotta, cinnabar, warm grays, shades of green such as moss and trees, brown oranges, burnt sienna, whites, some red browns and some gray blues.
With this palette trending almost year round, there are a number of styles that can be incorporated into your daily life. Some easiest and fun ways to introduce these tones are: mud-coloured nails, linen and khaki fabrics, accessories of multitudinal kind, warmer tones in makeup, leather juttis, belts and knit cardigans, brown and burnt sienna bindis and even woody perfumes. Play with textures to add elements of surprise into your earthy toned wardrobe. Suede, leather, and knits in earthy colors can definitely make your coordinates look more wholesome. Outerwear, accessories and the mighty old plaid are less overwhelming to experiment with and easily malleable into our existing wardrobes. From runways to street styles, earthy shades are also a celebrity favourite. Jacquemus, Fendi, Prada and Nikhil Thampi, are some designers that chiefly use earth colours in their collections.
