Yes, I’ve included this really great turtleneck AGAIN. I’m smitten with it, I tell you, but I absolutely CAN’T justify buying another sweater. I will probably survive the lack, I suspect!
It is incredibly easy to pair the grey core outfit with black or navy, so I thought I would wander further afield, into some warmer neutrals. This might be an excellent way to easy yourself into a warmer wardrobe, or to test-drive the possibility of a warm neutral.
And silver metal on the earrings was, to me, critical to tie the warm colors into the coolness of they grey. These little details can make a difference.
Brights were fun – cool shades were the obvious choice. As has happened before in this series, I could NOT find blue loafers that looked good to my highly critical eye, so I opted to choose classic, timeless grey ones. Always a safe, and a good, choice!
Yet another example of how well a white or off-white vest works with any color! And I used this blue vest again, because I thought it was a great combination with the grey. However, this is another case of never finding the perfect blue shoe! So I took this occasion to remind you that unless it’s snowing, sneakers are still good for many of us.
And WHOOOOT! I found a MUCH less expensive blush vest than the other one we’ve been admiring… The mint is a tricky color, but can be so beautiful. The scarf doesn’t exactly match, I don’t think, but it still holds the outfit together in a way I can’t quite explain.
No, you’re not too old for high-tops.
So I’m going to look at camel in this context, and taupe, and teal/petrol blue, if I can find the appropriate separates. (teal might make olive look easily found!) Other colors?
