January – the month of fresh starts, chilly winds, wintery coziness… What's even more exciting is the freshness January brings to fashion.
January is the perfect time for light and a bit sensual looks. Imagine cream, coffee, chocolate cake. That's why we have chosen Hazelnut-Cream-Beige as the color palette for January.
Hazelnut also happens to be one of the Pantone 2017 fashion colors and we can see clearly why. This soothing and mild color suits together with everything, starting from other neutral colors and ending with bright neons. There's just no way of going wrong with creamy tones!
What's even better, it doesn't matter if you are usually more on the colder or warmer color side – Hazelnut, as a neutral, compliments every girl.
To inspire you for wearing Hazelnut and Cream, we've put together these 10 outfits that are perfect for different occasions. January is the month of Hazelnut!
1. Sexy Chic Beauty
This look combines two rather opposite styles: edgy sexiness and mild boho. Opposites attract and same goes for these styles. Sleek thigh-high boots together with matching leather skirt create the perfect out-of-the-box feel while mild champagne-colored top with a toned cardigan takes the sexiness and turns it into a bit naughty yet confident look that looks great on anyone who wants to make a lasting impression.
2. Cozy Sunday Brunch
Creamy colors are almost made for a cozy night at home or a lovely Sunday brunch with your friends. This look is created keeping in mind those lazier days where you'd just love to snuggle up in your oversized cardigan and comfy stretchy jeans. If you love comfort, then this is the look for you.
3. As Classy As Can Get
Neutrals are beautiful for classy evenings and date nights as well. If you want to take the look a notch further, combine neutrals with a dash of neons. By the way, neons are also making a huge comeback in 2017 so we can expect to see a lot more flashy colors!
4. Rock It out
Cream seems like such a “girly-girl” color, doesn't it? But it's not! For rocking chicas, cream and hazelnut are wonderful companions to black. Why not put together a kinky cream bralette with your favorite leather jacket?
5. Brightest Fashionista
Hazelnut comes in many different versions and tones, including sparkling bronze-golden shimmers. For glamorous cocktail parties, a light sparkling skirt that is mixed together with intriguing burgundy is guaranteed to get all the eyes on you.
6. A Little Sassy Yet Classy
A take on boho-chic, what could go together better than different materials, cuts and tone-in-tone? Leather and wool, stripes and different creamy tones – though there is a lot going on in this outfit, it doesn't overpower the wearer's charm and you are guaranteed to give the vibe of a woman that knows her worth and isn't afraid to show it!
7. Let's Mix It Up
This look puts together best items for different worlds – leather for edginess, pink for girly-girls, cardigan/poncho for boho-chic, booties for classy and top for sexiness. Don't be afraid to experiment because eclectic style is what makes the world so interesting. Combine the items you love and you are guaranteed to look your finest!
8. Fashionable at the Office
We haven't forgotten about you, office ladies, either! If you have a busy day which starts with some work around the desk and involves some chic-casual meetings/dinner, you'll need a versatile outfit that can work fine for all occasions. These Hazelnut pants are perfectly light and loosely fitted so you wouldn't feel “bounded”, yet throwing on a classic blazer is perfect for the day-time. For dinner parties, just take the jacket off and let your sexy top shine. That's one heck of a girl boss there!
9. Dash of Red
We at Zerxza love neutrals with color flashes and that love was the inspiration for this simple look. It's perfect for running errands, especially thanks to the big warm coat that keeps you perfectly snuggled during chillier days.
However, if you need a quick turn to a bit sexier side, just let your classy dress shine – though conservative, little cut-outs on the shoulders show just enough of bare skin to show what a mesmerizing and confident lady you are!
10. Cutie Meets Chic
Hazelnut is practically made for snuggly cardigans, but instead of matching the cardi with some jeans or sweats, why not take the sweater out when going on a party? Heels, tiny clutch and tightly fitting skirt add a touch of sexiness while the little bow and soft cardigan maintain the perfect balance.
