To be totally honest, our take on neutrals may not be the most traditional around. But, fashion editor J.J. Martin clearly understands a more traditional approach, and she's setting a perfect example when it comes to styling them right. Sporting goes-with-everything tan shorts and a simple black pouch, she gives her most bare-boned basic pieces new life with the addition of opulent prints, cut-out sandals, and look-at-me neon.
Pairing the versatile shorts with a decorative turquoise top, Martin keeps her lines clean and simple, all the way down (or, up) to her slicked-back 'do with and distinct center part. Our favorite details about the outfit, naturally, are the unapologetically bold sandals that keep our glance happily shifting from toe to top, and back down again.
