What Jeanne Wore: Beige and Camel

Beige and Camel | Two Take on Style

Zara dress (similar), River Island vest (similar), Joe’s Jeans shoes, old earrings (similar), old brooch (similar), old bracelets (similar)

This is such an interesting ensemble for me.  I rarely wear beige and the idea of combining beige with camel is just not ME. (Where is the color?  I need color.) But I loved how this turned out and I think the gold accessories really made the look.  I can tell you that immediately after I wore this, I put the vest away until fall – way too warm for spring weather in California!  I hope you too have those days when you look in the mirror and say “I nailed it!”.

What Jeanne Wore: Black and Gray

Ah, my tried and true black and gray combination again!  This is another great outfit for cooler spring days – light wool vest in the morning, just the blouse in the afternoon.  I have had this Forever 21 blouse for years and it has never gone out of style and brightens up anything I pair it with – a true clothes war horse!  It is the perfect example of “low” fashion working successfully with “high” fashion.  How many of those do you have in your closet?

What Jeanne Wore: Maxi Sweater of Many Colors

OK, after this post I promise to move away from the topic of long sweaters and GRAY.  I received this sweater for Christmas (that is I found it on sale and asked my husband to buy it for me) and I love everything about it – tightly woven fabric that won’t stretch, BRILLIANT colors, a slimming silhouette, and it will go with everything in my closet.  These would be my criteria for almost any item of apparel, as I think about it.  I love the feeling when I try on a new online purchase and I know instantly that I have a winner.  It doesn’t happen often, but when it does…

What Jeanne Wore: Gray Separates Redux

Stella Carakasi vest (in other colors, similar), Topshop joggers (similar), Banana Republic blouse (similar), Zara shoes (similar), vintage brooch (similar), old Saks Fifth Avenue earrings (similar), COS bracelet

As I said in my post on Friday, I am becoming a fan of gray and its many shades and fabrications.  I loved how this outfit came together.  In truth, until this year I’d been relying on a series of classic charcoal gray tapered trousers to represent “gray” in my closet.  This year, I consigned those classics and found these Topshop joggers – so much more fun and interesting to style.  Our generation grew up hearing about the “classics” that every woman should have in her wardrobe.  Well, I say forget that notion and have fun with your clothes. You only live once!

What Jeanne Wore: Gray Duster and Sweater Dress

My favorite feature in this ensemble is the shorter dress/tunic with the longer duster.  It is so much fun to play with combining different lengths, especially this year when a plethora of long, short and hi-low tops and sweaters are around.  I also don’t ordinarily think of gray as one of “my colors”, but I do love combining different textures of gray in one outfit like I’ve done here.

What We Wore: Gray Full Skirts

Jeanne says: Yes, I admit it:  this is not a gray skirt, but a colorblock midi skater dress from Asos. I wish this WERE a skirt because wouldn’t it be the ultimate in girliness and versatility? Kate’s little gray skirt is also pretty girly, although she works to toughen it up with black tights and yellow and animal print accessories. Which just proves my point about the versatility of a great gray skirt!

On Kate: Anthropologie skirt (similar), Land End Canvas cardigan (similar), J.Crew tee (similar), Banana Republic flats (similar), Hue tights, Asos necklace (similar)

Kate says: You guys have seen this skirt in many different outfits. Generally I like pairing it with bright colors and prints, to keep it from looking too neutral or dowdy. Here I think it’s perfect with bright yellow and a polka dot tee.

On Jeanne: Neiman Marcus Cashmere tunic (one of a kind but this is cute), Hue leggings, Schulz shoes (similar), Gap belt (similar), old earrings (also cute), vintage bracelets (similar, similar), Fossil watch (similar)

interesting grays | Two Take on Style

Jeanne says:  This tunic is about five years old; it’s certainly different. It doesn’t turn heads exactly, but it does get a lot of side eye.  And when I wear it, there is no point in combining it with any other interesting apparel because that would just take it over the top! It does qualify as “interesting gray”, right? In case you hadn’t figured it out, this is definitely Friday casual in my world!

Kate has put together a trendy outfit: embellished sweatshirt, skater skirt, neon and cobalt. I like the combo, although I probably would have done a half tuck and pushed up the sleeves on the sweatshirt just to exaggerate the playfulness of the outfit. Kate has gotten lots of wear out of that Anthropologie skirt and we can see why — it is adorable.

interesting grays | Two Take on Style

Kate says: For this outfit, I was inspired by the many Pinterest photos floating around of super sophisticated all gray outfits. Of course, I couldn’t resist adding some bright pops of color! I really enjoyed the playfulness of this outfit — it very different from the ways I normally wear this skirt!

As Mom points out, she has been wearing this tunic for several years, and I can’t say it’s my favorite… but it’s a perfect example of her quirky style. She used to have (or still has?) a dress with repeating pictures of Mao on it, so we all know she likes to grab some attention! I do like how she keeps it simple with leggings and a low-slung belt, and really lets Twiggy be the star.
