In clothing and fashion, neutral colors are those that blend well with other colors and don't stand out. The most common neutral colors are black, white and grey. Other colors, such as navy blue, silver and cream are also considered neutral.
The concept of neutral colors in fashion stems from the way various colors either complement or clash with other. Black and white go well with nearly every color because they do not visually disturb the eye. This makes them the ideal palette to allow statement pieces such as a red scarf or a green necklace to pop and stand out.
