Wear earth tones in the Spring and Summer if that’s your cup of tea. No need to reserve them for Autumn if you like to wear them year-round. Wear them across all sorts of wardrobe items, as long as the fabrics and silhouettes work for the weather. Adding footwear and bags in a shade of brown is a lovely earthy touch. Or if you prefer shine, try gold, pewter and bronze.

Here are four earthy Spring outfit formulas that are easy to recreate if you have an earthy wardrobe.

1. Olive Dress and Brown Accents

Combine an olive dress in a pattern or solid with a brown belt and sandals to match. Throw in a bag in a shade of brown too. This is a midi shirt dress but the frock can be any length and silhouette. These shoes are sandals, but you can choose a more closed shoe. An earth-toned moto, trench coat, blazer, or maxi cardigan could work as a topper if you need it.

2. Earthy Top and Skirt Pattern Mix

Combine an earthy top and skirt in a similar palette but different patterns. Here, the patterns match because they share the same caramel, rust, and mustard colours. The patterns also have a similar design. Complete the look with brown or gold footwear and a straw bag.

3. Utility with a Bit of Blue

Combine a pair of casual toffee, tan or khaki pants with an olive utility jacket. Or a pair of olive pants with a khaki utility jacket. Keep the layering top earthy and cream if you like, or add a bit of soft blue like the patterned shirt shown here. A blue chambray shirt can work well too. Finish off the look with brown, tan or gold footwear, and a bag and hat to match. Espadrilles would look great too.

4. Dressy Three Piece

And last, an earthy, soft and dressy three-piece suit that is one colour and fabric, but feel free to remix different fabrics and earth tones for your version. Combine a pair of earthy pants with a longish shell top. Belt the shell top with a broad belt of sorts. Layer a dressy shacket or jacket over the top. Add a statement necklace and shiny dressy shoes. Add a bag that matches the outfit. I like the teal coming through in the necklace!
