Here's How to Wear Earth Tones For Summer
One of the best things about summer is how much time you're able to spend outside doing activities like swimming in the ocean or hiking in the woods. Celebrating nature and all of its beauty is definitely a perk of the warm weather. That's why summer is the perfect time to channel the vibrancy of the great outdoors into fashion by wearing earth tones. An earth tone can be any color that mirrors one found in nature, like the lush green of grass, sunbaked red of cracked clay, or crystal blue of a river. These rich colors are best paired with neutrals like cream and denim, though in some cases, earth tones can be neutrals on their own as well. Keep scrolling for different examples of earth-tone pieces and styling inspiration.
Banana Republic Knit Maxi Dress
The mossy green of this Banana Republic Knit Maxi Dress ($120) is a brighter example of an earth tone. The full length of this dress means it's an appropriate choice for evening wear, but it's made from a T-shirt jersey that can be easily dressed down. We suggest pairing it with slides or sneaks during the day and swapping for heels at night.
Youswim Verve High Waist Two-Piece
Youswim is all about eliminating restrictive standard sizing with a stretchy fabric that adapts to fit different body types. The sporty style of the Verve High Waist Two-Piece ($139) in Sand offers ample hip and stomach coverage for extra comfort. Wear it with an open, printed Hawaiian shirt for a retro-cool beach look.
Paloma Wool Blue Croc Gustava Bag
If you haven't already invested in a mini shoulder bag, now is the time. We love that this stone-colored Paloma Wool Blue Croc Gustava Bag ($182, originally $240) comes with a detachable phone pouch. This bag will look just as cute with a sundress as it will with a tank and jeans.
