As mentioned on Tuesday, neutrals are the way to go. So, to take it a step further I’m discussing tan, cognac, British tan, whatever you want to call it, accessories. If you want to get the most bang for your buck, this post is for you! I own at least six items from above and let me tell you, I use them all the time and they go with everything. They’re probably the most versatile pieces in my closet and the reason I can get away with wearing the same thing (without looking like it) all the time.
I think the Sam Edelman gigi sandals and my Cuyana tote we’re the first couple of tan pieces that entered my closet. Once I noticed how much use I got out of them and how well they worked with the rest of the pieces in my closet, I was hooked. I’ve been adding bags, shoes, watches, and scarves ever since. On a side note, I have a thing about matching my accessories. It’s a way to pull an outfit together no matter if you’re dressing up or down. If I’m wearing a pair of tan espadrilles, I need my bag to match. Or I’ll do it with my scarf and shoes or coats and shoes. A lot of people are very anti the matchy-matchy thing, but I think I’ve become a little compulsive (go look at all my Instagram photos, I’m crazy). I think this is the reason my tan collection has gotten so large.
Whether you decide to get all matchy-matchy or not, tan accessories without a doubt are the way to go. You’ll be surprised at how often you reach for them.
