Shades of Tan

August 9, 2017

The August heat is on and I’ve been reaching for every shade of tan, burnt taupe and dusty blush I can get my hands on. Maybe it’s the precursor to that seasonal change or maybe its the fact that I have a little tan going on, either way I’m into this color palette. Here’s how I’m styling it these days.

Also be sure to check out the shop I curated for Who What Wear that goes live today—it’s full of toasty shades

With a bit of gold. Whether its a delicate necklace (this one by Jane Pope has been permanently around my neck) or a chunky bold pair of hoops the warm toned metal is the perfect accent.
Mixing shades. The best part about this range of colors, is that they all look good together. Blend in lighter and darker tones of a similar hue with accessories. Bag by Grace Atelier de Luxe, Chloe sandals, similarTexture play. Working with one color family opens up a lot of ways to play with different materials and layers. This LoveShackFancy dress is soft, flowy and feminine so I paired it with a boxy bag with braided details.
Dewy and fresh faced. To me there’s nothing better than a sun-kissed glow. Here are some favorite products to moisturize, highlight and deepen your tan.
