No matter how motley your wardrobe, neutrals are an absolute must. The fashionable choice of colour, however, has changed over the years. Black, white, grey, greige, and beige – this season, we want to soften the bitter chill with the shade of oatmeal.

Below, Vogue Scandinavia has gathered the very best ways to incorporate the colour in your wardrobe:

Necessary knits

This is the sartorial staple that never goes out of style. Wether worn over wide legged denim, or in a monochromatic top-to-toe look, an oatmeal knit is an absolute necessity.

Top it off

Tops are an essential part of our wardrobes, serving as foundations to fabricate our looks around. A tied shoulder, a silk shirt or a knit bralette is a good place to start when curating your closet.

All wrapped up

In an effort to avoid our reliant and – dare we say it – boring black basic coats, this season we look on the brighter side of outerwear. Padded, puffed, or coated in faux fur – we prefer to wrap up in oatmeal.
