Interested in wearing more neutrals but afraid of looking bland or washed-out? Let Raquel Allegra's Summer 2011 collection be your neutral style inspiration. Full of gorgeous earth and blush tones with just a few pops of black and bright orange, each piece is spectacularly crafted with such ease and sophistication that it's no wonder she's a hit with other designers and celebs worldwide. The collection features plenty over Allegra's infamous shredded shirts, draped to perfection and providing much-appreciated air circulation for those particularly hot-and-sticky days. We're also totally in love with the gentle color contrasts in the tie-dyed pieces and how the dye patterns almost resemble jewelry. Perhaps the best thing about Allegra's collection, however, is how versatile each piece is. Whether you prefer your clothing loose, cinched with a belt, or layered to the max, this lookbook (beautifully shot by Margo Ducharme) demonstrates how you can make each piece your own. To kickstart your foray into neutrals, Raquel Allegra is giving away her personal favorite piece to one lucky reader—a Shred Shoulder Tee in Slate. Just tell us where you'd love to wear your new shirt this summer and we'll pick our favorite as the winner!
