Feeling a sudden case of sartorial ennui, brought on by spring's perennial onslaught of brights? Enter the new range of neutrals that can be worn on their own, but also in contrast to the season's super-saturated hues: The Peanut Palette. In shades ranging from taupe to camel, look for variations in every silhouette—from separates, like cropped leather bombers, to fitted body-con frocks. Conversely, get your fix in small, accessory-sized doses with cat-eye sunglasses or this season's strappy single-sole pumps. The slightly subdued, muted feel is far from basic or boring, yet maintains a sense of neutrality while adding more interest to an ensemble than black or white. Plus, any iteration of the shade makes for the ideal complement to the all-over prints and punchy pastels that become ubiquitous once the warmer temperatures take over. Hear that? We think we just justified a little 'investment piece' shopping spree.
