10+ Reasons To Quit Colorful Clothes

It pains us to even mention the idea of ditching our colorful clothes. Truly, deeply pains. But, the new Zara lookbook has just debuted, and suddenly a lack of bold hues has never been more appealing. While the retailer has a real knack for mastering clean, minimal style that's trend-focused, this new collection seems to have taken the if-it-ain't-broke-don't-fix-it approach to the most classic colors around.
White, black, nude, and the faintest blush shades dominate the new offerings. And, in true form, the silhouettes remain structured via relaxed-fit suits, crop-top-and-pencil-skirt combos, high-waisted shorts, sheer-panel tees, and shift dresses.
And, if you're really aching for a hue that's not so basic, Zara has provided some of the prettiest foliage prints in colorblocked red and blue, as well as a mustard trouser and bomber jacket that are seriously statement-making. That is, especially in your new, neutral wardrobe. Not ready to ditch the color wheel? We feel ya. But, we still think you'll find some inspiration in the photos ahead.
