It is no secret that this season has been all about rich browns, creamy beiges and all shades of chocolate in between
Over here at Milan The Label, we ladies are making it a known statement that this trending tone is actually here to stay. Now, you might be wondering why exactly chocolate hues are so hot right now. The answer is simple: they flatter every skin tone. Whether you prefer a deeper umber or a softer camel, there is sure to be a chocolate tone to compliment you.
Once you’ve decided what you need to refresh your wardrobe with this universally flattering tone, it’s time to accessorise to perfection. Simple, classic and elegant gold jewellery pairs beautifully and brings out the warm chocolate undertones in these pieces. Our stylists recommend carefully selecting a few key jewellery pieces to accentuate your outfit. In the words of a style icon, Coco Chanel, “Accessories are what makes or marks a woman…Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory”. This promises the undone yet polished, minimalistic, and classic look that she was renowned for.
