Lawrence Zarian shows how earth tones when styled correctly go from drab to fab.

Earth tones are timeless and is one of the easiest hues to complement your wardrobe and skin tone.

Fun fact: Historically, most fabrics were dyed with materials that were easy to acquire such as dirt, grass, or clay.


  • The earth tone color palette is vast, so there are plenty of opportunities for mixing and matching.
  • Earth shades create the most timeless of all color schemes, as they are all drawn from nature itself.
  • Earth tone colors are olive, charcoal, brick, brown, tan, leaf green, etc.
  • With earth tone fashion trending year-round, you can find all sorts of styles to incorporate into your outfits for any season! #seasonlessdressing
