As a New Yorker, I live in neutral colors like black, white and grey. Those colors are just such staples and can make any item seem a bit more put together. The boys wear a ton of neutral colors too, so I wanted to think of a few ways to make them pop for Spring. I put together this shoot with the boys + one of their best gal pals, Brianna.  You've seen her most recently here,  but she's been in a ton of shoots with the boys and I since six years old! I love shooting images of her, she takes direction well and looks amazing. But I digress. Let's get back to it, here's how you step up neutrals.

1. Texture. Brianna's sequin pants and Tyler's grey jacket are still neutral in color, but they have just enough texture to give that extra wow. Texture, when done right, can make neutral items look expensive too. If Bri's pants were just grey or silver without the sequins, they definitely wouldn't look as luxurious as they do now, right?

2. Pop of Color. Yes, we're talking neutrals, but adding one element of color, like Tristin's jeans, can make everything else a little more interesting. The jean color definitely brings out the pattern in his shirt, and makes his white sneakers pop! Try it with a fun bag for girls or a cool sneaker or denim for boys.

3. Accessories.  Try rocking a hat, or maybe a really detailed necklace, to play up neutral colors. The neutral thang is really all about elevating the average white tee or simple black pair of jeans. Check out Bri's necklace over a simple tuxedo shirt, and Tyler's hat with a simple, plain white tee.
