Neutral Glam

Neutrals can tend to be a little drab if you pick too many similar colors in one outfit, but a good way to give a mostly neutral outfit a little pick-me-up is by adding some interesting accessories.  This creation started when I found the unique green silk top from Forever21 featured below. 
Neutral Glam

Forever 21 continues to produce beautiful silk tops (regardless of some of the awful, cheap looking pieces they make) and every time I visit their website I am immediately drawn to those tops. This green shirt, in particular, is a gorgeous color for Fall - look at how well it pairs with the rust colored Urban Outfitters blazer (and don't you love the elbow patches on the blazer!?). The two colors are perfect together, and they're even better when you throw in a hint of gold and amber through the accessories. The earrings and bracelet are both incredibly affordable pieces from Forever21. The gold necklace is bit more of a splurge from J.Crew, but so worth it for the variety of ways you could wear it - this necklace could easily dress up a simple black dress for an upcoming holiday party.  Finally, the clutch rounds out the entire outfit by pulling together all of the colors featured in the rest of the outfit in a stunning, visually stimulating peacock pattern.
