As soon as I published the first wardrobe based on this great painting, I heard from readers who really loved it except… they don’t like, or look good in, beige.
This isn’t really a problem; this painting includes a few shades of grey! They’re admittedly not as prominent as the beige, but that’s okay. Let’s see how this might play out, with the same 4 accent garments and a different scarf…
All I did for the color palette was change the beige to grey, and change the borders of each of the colors from brown to grey.
So this means that we need to start with A Common Wardrobe (i.e. classic garments that many of us might own) in grey:
As is always true with A Common Wardrobe, there are lots of possible outfits with just these 9 garments:
Now let’s bring back into this wardrobe the 4 accent garments that I’ve used before, along with a different scarf that works to pick up the accent colors and tie them into the grey neutral:
It might run counter to intuition to think that you could wear a color as quintessentially cool as grey with accent color as warm as these, but take a look at how good they look together!
And as always, the outfits really look great:
I’ve got a couple of “regularly scheduled” posts coming up next (the birth flowers for July, and the “6 Scarves, 12 Outfits” posts), but shall I revisit this with accessories? Let me know!
