Regardless of the season or month of the year, my closet and drawers will always have plenty of black and shades of beige/tan. It is a color combination I never tire of, (Ginger also loved it), and I like it for work as much as for play….when you have your favorite color combos it also makes dressing easier because your wardrobe can be mixed in various combinations. Here are some favorite pieces in an outfit I recently wore to work that are also great worn casual or in the evening…the Theory jacket I found on sale at Neiman Marcus when I wasn’t looking for a jacket – perfect fit, great color, on sale – no brainer…..the Wolford skirt is a stretchy nylon material with a pull-on waistband – also found on sale – I will regularly check the sale rack at Wolford’s because the items are pricey. To keep the look simple for work I wore a thin cashmere sweater (Alice and Olivia), and added a feminine touch by layering two pearl necklaces.
With such a cool looking outfit, you could go straight out to dinner without changing……you could…..but somehow it feels better to shed your work clothes – a visual symbol that it’s time to relax. So here is an easy transition – same jacket, black leggings, Burberry scarf…the black/beige combo never lets me down!
What is your favorite color combination? Does it change with the seasons?
