Tanned skin

#over40 Classic work outfit | High Latitude Style |
White blazer with denim shirt, tan leather skirt, blue tights, heeled duck boots and Kate Moss for Longchamp bag (all own)

It seems like my second name should be neutral. Here I put again an outfit together made up by just neutral colors: brown, white, and blue. The trick to keep such outfits interesting is to choose pieces/elements of interest like the unlaced heeled duck boots, or the bright and shiny necklace. The contrast of very posh, i.e. the white Ann Taylor blazer, and casual, the denim shirt also help to keep the outfit from landing in boring land.

The outer outfit adds two other neutrals: olive and black. While the olive becomes the standout color, the head band picks up some black and the tan of the Kate Moss for LongChamp bag, and brown of the heeled duck booties. The gloves match the booties and tights.

As demonstrated here, neutrals are not boring at all. They are the real stars.
