Some days I wonder where the color in my wardrobe has gone. I can’t help that I love classic black mixed with everything, as well as navy and shades of olive.  But it is uplifting to dress in red and white as you see here.  There is nothing, in my opinion, better than a true, clear red and these pants qualify.  They will be keepers in my summer retirement wardrobe!

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: Black Tube Skirt and Clover Canyon Top

I’ve always been the kind of gal who has the perennial basics covered in her closet.  As a result I always have a basic black skirt and a perfect pair of black pants.  Well, this year and for a number of years to come, the basic black skirt is this wonderful Gaultier item – high waisted, midi-length tube skirt made of Gaultier’s tulle fabric, with polka dots in the weave of the skirt!  AND it goes with anything and everything.  I’d probably even wear leggings underneath!

Wearing this skirt with my Clover Canyon top is a no-brainer.  I love Clover Canyon items – sort of a poor woman’s Mary Katrantzou – and I found this deeply on sale.  Not so much the skirt…

What Jeanne Wore: Duster and Joggers

Zara duster coat (similar), J. Crew joggers (similar), Loft shirt (similar), Sole Society shoes, old earrings (similar), Michael Kors watch (similar)

If you’ve been following my blog, you know that I love these very bright red jogger pants and I’ll wear them no matter how warm or cold it may be!  I would wear them every time with this wonderful Loft blouse with its unevenly spaced polka dots.  But … that would be boring.

One way to cut through the boredom is to throw on a duster coat.  This one is a dark tweedy one with many different red colors woven in.  I told you the other day about my obsession with long sweaters?  Well, welcome to my other obsession – long unlined duster coats.  They make any outfit an OUTFIT in my opinion and they go so well with short or long skirts, wide or skinny pants. Try one out if you haven’t already.

Does anyone besides me remember this Gap coat from about four years ago?  A brilliant design, I thought.  But I never guessed that it would match my new Anthropologie skirt so perfectly!  Color blocking wins again!

But seriously, we often decide in favor of basic coat designs – not too radical, neutral colors and probably not a print.  I’ve collected wonderful coats over the past ten years by shopping Gap, H&M, etc.  Not a lot of money, but full of pizzazz for the dreary winter months!

What’s not to love about a red and navy combo?  I am especially enamored of this jacket purchased from Asos in the summer of 2014.  It is sublime!  I am becoming accustomed to the idea of a longer loose top with a tailored moto jacket.  I have to say that I am gravitating towards more navy as opposed to black.  It is a refreshing option and every bit as universal as black!

Jeanne says:  Of course, we had to style coral after our Color of The Week: Coral post last week! My coral outfit makes me SO happy – I guess it is the effect of the polka dots!  I have a few of these jogger pants ready for warm weather, but the coral ones are definitely the best.  I love Kate’s sweet coral sweater with the Peter Pan collar peaking out over the top.  It would look great with MY joggers.

Kate says: I’ve had this cotton coral sweater for many years now, and it remains one of my favorites! Here, it provides a nice pop of color to an otherwise black and white outfit. I also love it paired with other bright colors and prints. Mom takes on a brighter coral in her adorable jogger pants — of course pairing them with an adorable whimsical dot top. So cute!

Mixing patterns has never been difficult for us; its almost second nature!  Jeanne’s pretty matchy matchy about it as we’ve seen, while Kate’s approach is much more free-spirited.  We both like pattern matching because it makes our wardrobe pieces go even further!

Kate says: In my business casual office, I love pairing a pencil skirt with a casual tee – it’s the perfect mix of dressy and casual. This just shows how versatile pencil skirts can be. They work for corporate offices, business casual offices or even on the weekends with a tee and sneakers!

Jeanne says:  Oh, the beauty of a great pencil skirt.  I always feel instantly grown up when I put one on.  Dark pencil skirts are a great item for transitioning to spring.  It is not quite time for pastels and sandals and exactly the time for mixing light and dark.  Kate’s outfit is a perfect example of that.

Kate says: We do wear quite a bit of pink — but I’ll admit that I pull it out more later in winter, when I really just want it to be spring! I like the juxtaposition here of a summery striped top with a more wintery leather-trimmed skirt. This is the kind of outfit that will help me reach spring with my sanity intact!

Jeanne says: You must think by now that Kate and I wear a lot of pink; it is true that we are still waiting for fuchsia as the color of the year! Here I am wearing a top as a light sweater and mixing three different patterns. Kate is wearing her pink stripes with a great little leather trimmed skirt. I wish I could wear skirts that short!
