HOW ASOS INSIDERS DO NATURALS
By Steven Potter, 14 March 2019
Alongside the in-your-face animal print and neon movements currently adding a punchy overtone to menswear this season, there’s also a more subdued, stripped-back trend for you to take advantage of. Stony hues, off-whites and shades of beige make up the natural palette that lends itself particularly well to the utility-style pieces currently dropping on ASOS. Keep scrolling for some tonal tips from our very own ASOS Insiders.
Spring might be approaching fast, but don’t ditch the layers just yet. For a natural cold-weather update, make like ASOS_Nawal and team an oversized fluffy knit with some sporty-style joggers for a look that’s half mum pleasing, and half tonal streetwear. To finish, the cross-body bag taps into the utility hype and keeps those all-important essentials safe and sound, too. Stylish and practical.
ASOS_Jono, our Australian Insider, is on a warm-weather flex, giving us a lesson for when the temperature finally creeps back into double figures. Mixing two trends in one sweet look, Jono’s opted for a cut-and-sew shirt with a two-tone snakeskin print, layered under a utility-style gilet. A standout piece if you’re feeling the pocket-heavy vibe.
Our skatewear expert ASOS_Ruddy has embraced the utility vibe wholeheartedly. Just look at all those pockets. Using teddy-bear texture overalls as a snuggly base, Ruddy’s kept the palette neutral with a matching shacket-and-cap combo with a bleach-wash shirt underneath. With a matchy-matchy look up top, he’s taken the opportunity to make the most of some statement Nike kicks in an eye-popping colourway. Fresh.
Looking to work those natural hues into a slightly smarter vibe — you know, maybe for an interview, or dress-down Friday in the office? Well, peep ASOS_Thomas in his tonal ‘fit, adding some Parisian flair to the trend. He’s teamed a mustard denim jacket with some beige, striped trews, and elevated the look with a plain roll-neck and classic shoes from Dr Martens. Date night coming up? This look is the one for sure.
