Generally I'm against it.  I'm against is sartorially, and in a more broad metaphorical way too.  It's non-committal, wishy-washy, and easy.

To dress neutral is a cop out because you know it's going to look good, you don't have to think about anything.  And by not thinking about things, you never really consider where you stand.  You never have to say that you're this or that - boho, vintage, a pink lover, a hater of florals.  You never have to actually risk anything.

I'm always skeptical of and suspicious of people who only wear neutrals - because if you can't commit and take a stand sartorially *where it's arguably the easiest since there's nothing on the line* then where else are you copping out?  Politically?  Socially?  Emotionally?

I know, you didn't expect that today did you?

  1. I love neutral colors for the days I don't want to think to much, for when life is little overwhelming and i don't have time but I still want to look great. But I know what you mean. I don't like the "classic" look, and I think people who wear just that all the time must not be very creative (not true, of course, but I love to see peoples art or creativity spill over into their wardrobe. Like, if I saw you on the street I'd think "Wow, I really want to get to know her" just based on how you dress.)

    1. Me too. I love to see people dress in unique and creative ways. And clearly, we all have neutral days ;) Thank you so much for your kind words :)
