12 Game-Changing Neutrals That Are Anything But Boring

We're pretty vocal when it comes to our love of punchy hues and bold hits of color, but lately, we've found ourselves craving something a little different. We're talking about the effortlessly cool, laid-back effect of a more limited palette. Don't freak out: We have no intention of permanently ditching our neons and brights; but, this season we're relying more than ever on the black, white, and beige staples that essentially go with everything.
So, when we discovered that Susan Choi, owner of L.A.-based vintage mecca Persephone, shared our neutral point of view, we didn't waste any time in gathering up our favorite finds. Thanks to her keen eye for quirky, pre-loved pieces that feel fresh and relevant, these stunners challenge every preconceived notion you have about "boring" basics. Below, we've rounded up 12 chic summer must-haves that perfectly offset any pop of color...but look pretty darn good on their own, too.
Psst! Like what you see? Now you can snag all of these (100% shoppable!) handpicked finds with just one easy click. Or, you can head on over to R29 Shops to check out the whole boutique. Yup, vintage shopping just got way cooler.
