This spring 2016, bet on the 'total neutral look'

mango man spring 2016

As in the image we see on the cover, this Spring 2016, we join the trend that bets on the total look in neutral palette. A style that allows us to play with different styles at the same time and that encourages us to combine different textures in the same outfit. Everything, under a single premise: to play exclusively with neutral tones.

The Spanish firm Mango Man has just launched its latest campaign entitled 'Essentials', a collection that, following the same line of competitors as H&M, is committed to a collection of so-called infallible basics. The image has inspired us a lot, so we give you some style guidelines so that you can wear this trend in your looks newspapers.

Play with the same tone in different shades

The secret of this type of looks is the color combination. Choose a base tone and play with it in different shades and finishes. For example, if we opt for off-white, we can combine it in the same set with both matte and light satin finishes. Or playing mixing garments with different textures; for example, jeans with an embossed knit sweater.

Add a small note of accent color to the cool

To avoid falling into monochrome, it doesn't hurt add a note of accent color. Which does not mean that we have to choose an intense tone, but rather a complementary color. For example, a pastel blue for an off-white outfit, or a touch of white for a cool in greyish color range.

Do not forget a good fitting

Finally, el-fitting of the garments is, as always, the most important thing. Choose the cuts that suit you the most and don't abuse the ends, not too tight, not too oversize.
