In the past I’ve gravitated mostly toward color- bright and sometimes shocking color, but lately I’ve been wearing more neutrals. I think it’s a sign of my age. It’s the whole idea of quality over quantity– it only makes sense to spend my money on something if I love it and I know I’ll get a lot of use out of it. I find that neutrals in classic silhouettes make the most sense, since they can easily be paired with different pieces to create a look that’s appropriate for work or play.
Neutral looks don’t have to be boring though. I can be practical and still be me. The necklace I’m wearing is a belt I repurposed to add a little pizzazz to this look. So yeah, I can be practical and still be (creative and) true to myself.
