Was your guess right on what I would keep from yesterday’s OOTD for today’s OOTD? Still screening? It is hard to find. Hint: Button of the photo. The flats!
Here I am going for a neutral outfit for work. I like the “colorless” cleanness of just white, gray, and black. This color combination – like black and white – is a statement all by itself.
Shoes can make or break an outfit
One can never underestimate what shoes can do for an outfit. Tweet this. Shoes can make or break the look. Tweet that. Wearing the right shoes sometimes can be really tough. In cold climate regions, it is snow or sleet that make wearing the right pair of shoes difficult. My solution to this winter style problem is a large bag. I put my shoes in a fabric shoe bag and carry them back and forth to the office. Thus, at least indoors, the outfit is having its “icing on the cake” – the right shoes.
The pitfall, however, is that sometimes I forget my shoes at the office. If it happens several days in a row an office can quickly look like a shoe store – LOL. 😉
Rule of two
As it was raining,I added my HH yellow raincoat that I bought in the men’s department and my sunflower yellow bag – a gift from my husband. On rainy gray days, I like to add a pop of color when being outside to lift the mood of the people around me. To look stylish always have each non-neutral color at least twice in an outfit. It can be in a different shade.
You can find another example of a look using just neutrals at the link.
What do you wear on a rainy day? Do you like the posh look of an outfit with just neutrals? Do you add a pop of color? How do you style your neutrals?
