There's a reason many of our closets are swimming in black: it's easy and flattering, hides certain areas that might not be our favorites, and goes with everything. But it's also, well, basic. The good news? There are other neutral shades that do all the heavy lifting that black does, but have much more personality.
Our favorite, flattering neutrals? Cargo (a dark gray) and Fatigue (an olive green). Below, see how some of the M2057 girls are wearing these colors this summer.
Cargo—a dark gray—actually looks better than black on many skin tones and is just as versatile. Try it with your favorite denim piece!

The best feature of neutral shades? They set off brighter colors beautifully! Pairing a color like jasper pink with cargo or fatigue is so much more interesting than black.

Forget the little black dress—this summer, why not try the little fatigue green dress?

Why choose gray or green when you can wear gray and green? Cargo and fatigue is one of our favorite color combinations, giving you a serene and flattering palette.
