WIW: a few neutrals

I decided to try Angie's "many neutrals" ensemble after all. At first, I thought, Gee, this isn't going to be very festive. Then Tanya posted a festive one, then Mirjana . . . and I had to give it a try, too. I decided to let red lipstick be my festive touch.

The outfit, worn for a day off: dark skinny jeans (Mother, the Looker); gray scroll burnout tee (made by me); charcoal long cardigan (Halogen); brown belt (B-Low the Belt); espresso moto boots (Miu Miu); navy trench coat (London Fog); dark blue faux suede gloves; espresso and black satchel (Joy Gryson); silver and brass jewelry (earrings and necklace, Marjorie Baer; wrap bracelet, Lucky); red lipstick (Laura Mercier stick gloss, cranberry).

Thanks for looking! I look forward to your thoughts and suggestions.

    You look fabulous, so elegant. I like these colors on you. Nice cardigan and  skinny jeans which fit you great.

    Fab casual outfit Sharan.  And your bag and boots are beautiful to behold.

  • Maneera replied 4 years ago

    YOU LOOK FAB! I love how everything fits so perfectly!!! On you, these neutrals look so Parisienne Chic

  • Windchime replied 4 years ago

    Wonderful neutrals outfit! As always, you are so good at combining textures to add interest to your outfits. I love your shirt, and the color echo between the necklace and the belt buckle.

  • Elizabeth P replied 4 years ago

    You completely rock this look, Sharan. I bet you could also put together a great look with warmer toned neutrals... Including the difficult olive.

    What Denise said - neutral fabness with great shoes and bag!

  • Firecracker replied 4 years ago

    Thanks, everyone!
    Denise and Jaime, I must admit, I love a good outfit to let these boots shine.
    Maneera, I'm flattered at your Parisienne chic assessment--thank you.

    Elizabeth, oh yes, I'll have to try it with olive. Reading Angie's post, I was thinking it might be difficult, but I like my dark olive shades with charcoal and black, and I might be able to throw in some dark brown.

    Mirjana, thank you for the great inspiration.

    Windchime, I appreciate your comment on the necklace and belt; I was happy with the pairing, too--glad to hear you like it!

    I want that scroll burnout tee! All your hand made items are so yummy. YLF!

  • Mellllls replied 4 years ago

    Looks great!

  • Angie replied 4 years ago

    Casual Moody Festive Chic. I love how the chunky necklace and buckle match, Sharan. Adds oomph. 

  • Peri replied 4 years ago

    I'm running out of ways to say you look amazing! :)

  • unfrumped replied 4 years ago

    You rock this outfit, and great way to combine black, brown and gray. Plonking love thd burnout top with its varying tones.
    If I were to try a variation, I wonder if you could include some lighter neutrals of thd depth of the T, but maybe camel or other neutrals that pick up on hair and skin tones. This is a feature I really liked in Angies post but I don't always have the right " shades" of things, or may be using too much critical filtering. In your outfit the pendant and buckle add this lightness.

  • Firecracker replied 4 years ago

    unfrumped, yes I wondered the same thing. Angie's post had the camel or toffee, and I don't have much in that area. I have a belt, but the shoes that would coordinate are for spring (ballet flats). One of my priorities here was working in the boots, hence the dark brown. I could do a version with taupe.

    Success!  Festive and neutrals.  Your necklace and belt buckle add a bit of shine.  Please do show us your taupe version.  I have also been trying to create festive neutral outfits with what I have for cold weather...mostly dark neutrals.  It's hard. 

  • Summer replied 4 years ago

    I really like it.  The texture of your top, and the belt and jewellery  give plenty of interest to the neutrals.

  • Style Fan replied 4 years ago

    You always look amazing.  I love neutrals and you really rock this look. 

  • rachylou replied 4 years ago

    Polished. Whoa.
