I love grey, and it’s rather easy to shop for, but you do want to be aware of the varying shades of grey (some very yellowish, and other quite blue). They don’t always blend as well as one might prefer! The answer is generally to carry a key piece with you when shopping, to avoid any sort of “mis-remembering” of the color…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?
