Palette Cleanse: 13 neutral pieces to add to your wardrobe

If you've been watching celebrity style of late, you'll have noticed a potpourri of pleasing pale and pastel hues on stylish stars like Naomi Watts, Anna Kendrick and Angelina Jolie. If you're looking to incorporate neutrals into your wardrobe, we've got 13 ways for you to welcome the New Year with a sleek silhouette in a wash of barely-there colours - from buttercup and blush to periwinkle, dove grey and oatmeal!

Always in step with trends, Naomi Watts popped over to Good Morning America wearing a dusty pink Elie Saab cocktail dress with a cozy grey coat and nude Christian Louboutins - the perfect combination of neutral tones! Later that day, Naomi transitioned her dove-grey coat to a casual look, sporting sneakers and grey sweats for a shopping trip to Whole Foods.

Anna Kendrick slipped into a strapless Victoria Beckham dress in a perfectly pale peachy hue at the 2014 British Fashion Awards in London. The Into The Woods star kept her look pared down with champagne-coloured accessories and no jewelry, letting Victoria's design stand out as she presented the former Spice Girl with the award for Brand of the Year.

Before Kim Kardashian claimed neutrals all her own, there was Angelina Jolie. Ever the minimalist, the actress and director stayed true to her style in black and cream in New York City. Her demure coat with slit detailing in the back was comfortable enough for her to squat down and comfort an overwhelmed fan outside The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
