Jeans are a superb neutral choice in black, light, and dark blue, as well as white, ecru, or olive.
Among the things I’ve recently given away is a faded Levi’s jacket. I still wear lighter wash jeans, but I add a very crisp navy jacket or white shirt with faded denim. Garment dyed, marled, or faded items near my face wash me out and make me look very tired.
Another tip I apply is to repeat colors so that they look intentional. I love the look of cognac or luggage brown in fall, but warm colors are not the best choice to wear near my face. Instead of a camel jacket, I opt for shoes and a bag or belt in brown tones.
