Classics and neutrals have always been the backbone of my wardrobe. I find them the most cost-effective way to dress which allows me to wear pieces year after year. Today I’m styling a classic camel coat. All the other pieces of my outfit are classic too which makes it an easy look to replicate by shopping from your closet.
I started with a simple turtleneck. In truth, this one is very deep navy but as close to black as you can get. Nothing keeps me warmer in chilly weather so I wear them a lot.
I’m wearing them with my straight black jeans which I’ve had for years. Trends will change but a straight leg jean is always in style because… you guessed it, they’re classic. Mine have been washed more times than I can count but because they’re Talbots never-fade black, they are still pure black.
You may remember this scarf from several other times I’ve worn it. I fell in love the first time I spotted it. Then I waited and saved, and saved some more… before I finally bit the bullet and made the investment. Treasures are worth waiting for and I love it all the more for waiting. To be honest, I would rather have one fabulous scarf than 3 mediocre ones.
This dark turtleneck could be harsh against my complexion so I love how the scarf adds a pop of light. The pattern also picks up the camel from my coat, my complexion color, and has a few of my favorite blues.
I kept my jewelry extremely simple with just these twisted silver hoops which were a Christmas present from my daughter. I love them so much, I have to make myself not wear them every day.
My boots are plain and simple (similar boots)making them the perfect option to cover my ankles when it’s too cold for a ballet flat. Let’s not forget my hat. For me, they are an almost every day accessory. There’s no point in trying to treat sun damage and rack more up as you go:)
