Wearing red always makes me feel happier, even when I am standing in the rain. Red and royal blue are my accent colors. Black has always been my dark neutral color, but I am starting to purge black tops and jackets from my wardrobe. I am gradually switching to shades of gray or navy as my dark neutral.
I still own a few black jackets, but I always try to add a more flattering color near my face when I wear them.
My first layer in winter is almost always a Covered Perfectly top with long sleeves. The long sleeve scoop neck version here is perfect for keeping you warm under a loose-fitting jacket or a cardigan. (When you buy two tops from Covered Perfectly, the third is free!)
I am on a mission to wear what I have or let it go. I like the style of those So Slimming Juliet flocked pants from Chico’s, but they seem more appropriate for the evening. The French Connection jacket is about three years old.
