For some much needed inspiration, I copied an outfit from Megan’s polyvore collage: white top, gray skirt, gray heels.
Lace jacket, vintage. Vest, New York and Company. Skirt, Body by Victoria. Heels, Steve Madden. Necklace, Macy’s. Bracelets, Epcot Morroco. Clutch, Express.
For my pop of color, I relied on lipstick.
As I searched through my photo archive for other all-neutral ensembles, I surprised myself by finding dozens of examples. I’m certainly a color-lover, but I’ve worn plenty of ensembles in only shades of black, brown, white, and/or gray. In fact, there were so many example outfits, that I chose only my favorites and tried not to feature the same garment multiple times. Still, there were too many pictures!
In the interest of not crashing my readers’ networks, I’ve included them as thumbnails. (Clicking on any image will take you to that outfit’s blog entry.)
Lesson learned: I can wear (and have worn!) an interesting, all-neutral outfit.
