Some people choose black as their neutral, some white… but I have been addicted to a neutral very close to Pantone’s ‘Rose Cloud’

The addition of this camisole to my wardrobe began my addiction to, as Neale Whitaker dubs it, ‘Bandaid’ as a base colour. I prefer to liken it to the much prettier sounding Pantone Rose Cloud – a hue that is just a hint more pink than what you would traditionally call nude. Instead of using the colour to inject just a wee touch of pink, and/or colour in general, into a predominantly black and white wardrobe, rose cloud has become one of my staple neutrals for my colourful selection of clothing. In case you haven’t noticed, I wear this camisole and heels a lot.
Worn with a pink coat or anything on the purple spectrum, they appear quite pink, but when paired with a warm yellow or blues, the pink in these pieces is far less obvious. Like a chameleon, rose cloud literally goes with everything – and trust me on this, I have tried! If that isn’t enough to convince you to reach for it instead of black or white as your base colour, then perhaps it’s name will get you across the line…
‘Rose Cloud’… it is just so gosh darn pretty!
