Being totally practical, this is a very simple scheme to achieve and perfect to be combined with a neutral tonality. Sometimes a few additional touches of color are also used to give strength to the palette.

This apparent monotony can be mitigated if we apply different types of textures, these being the ones that cause contrast, or using color nuances that are very far apart. Knowing the psychology of color in fashion it is very easy to achieve this effect.

This combination is discreet so it usually goes very well for days in the office or situations where you are with the same people for long periods of time. This combination is usually fantastic for your everyday days.
