If trying to match your blacks has got you down and out, then make way for grey! Grey is even more versatile then the old standby, and less intimidating for day. Warm grey tones clash well with cool grey tones, and to pull the look together black accessories make the look a bit more dynamic.
This outfit is all about utility, comfort, and color theory, bringing together one pop of color and a lot of neutrals. This grey look is two pieces, both of which are made from ultra versatile knit cotton. The longsleeve tunic length dress was $8.99 at Oldnavy, and the jersey blouse was a Kohl’s clearance purchase from the Simply Vera by Vera Wang Collection, running me about $12.99. The best deals are yet to come, as my tights were $7.99 and have a killer pattern up close and personal. They are also from Kohl’s. Lastly if you’ve think you’ve heard it all about a good Grishley bargain, then think again because, this Pashmina looking piece is actually a summer sarong which I purchased brand new at a second hand store for $3.99. So not only does it look great around my neck, but it will also be a great cover up when the summer rolls around.
1. Cool Greys and Warm Greys are one happy family.
2. Black and Brown do not a bad match make!
3. Sometimes to put summer color into your winter wardrobe you have to think creatively!
