29 Neutral Dresses To Soothe The Soul

Keep the mood calm with a nude neutral palette this summer.

We really, really love colour. But occasionally we crave the soothing calm of a neutral palette. As uncertainty continues to characterise the days we’re living through, now is just such a moment. Happily, designers from the high end to the high street have obliged, with a surfeit of frocks in the biscuit/sand/ beige/ nude spectrum we’re hankering after and we’re breathing a serene sigh of unruffled calm. Here are our top picks.
