Lots of Neutrals

Some recent outfits
1/2: On a warm-ish day, oatmeal linen sweater and blue denim joggers. Scarf is from a riverbank in Cambodia from DS. The strip is denim blue.
3-5: Well this includes burgundy which feels like a neutral to me. Jeans, silvery metallic sweater and taupe blazer shown 3 ways. 3: With ribbon belt. 4: with taupe and burgundy scarf. 5: with grey and burgundy infinity scarf. Which do you like best?

    I really like the ribbon belt version

    Fantastic neutrals outfits, Joy! I like the burgundy and taupe outfit best in 5 (infinity scarf), though all are great, and the ribbon belt is such a fun idea.
    The ombre sweater dress is gorgeous on you. I like the lace top showing at neck and sleeves. I love the simplicity of 7/8 and the drama of 9/10.

    Anne, I hope that Kat sees this. The ribbon (fabric) was sent to me with the jacket. It is forgiving in a way that buttoning is not.
    Sharan, your comments mean so much to me and are very helpful.

    You are adorable and fashionable in #1. Super cute! Also super cute in #5 and beautifully festive in #6. Rock on, Joy.

    What a fab collection! Love the chunky knit in #1. Of the burgundy pants looks I think my favourite is #5. Love all the ombre sweater dress pics! Great proportions with the lovely colour block poncho too. You wear neutrals so well Joy!

    So m e really cute outfits there. I love the oatmeal sweater.

  • Joy replied 2 years ago

    Thank you for your replies. Angie, 1, 4 and 5 show how I wore these outfits out.
    JJ, after lots of cardi wearing this fall, I am enjoying jackets again now.
    Mirjana, I like the lace too. It is soft and not scratchy.
    Diane and Donnat, I am loving that chunky sweater with it's zipper detail. It is actually part of my fall capsule but worked well on a warm winter day with the scarf. I wore my BR chambray shirt under it.

    The oatmeal sweater looks great with your hair color. I like the burgundy jeans version #4 with the matching scarf the best. What a great dress and it looks great in all of the versions.

    Wonderful collection of fab outfits, Joy. I love the sweater in #1 - so cosy! I'm going to go with #6 -8 as my favourite from this bunch --- beautifully festive and totally glam with the lace peaking out and the beautiful jewelry.

    #1,#5 and #6 are my favorites. Great outfits!

  • Tanya replied 2 years ago

    All are lovely, but I especially like #5 and #6.  Great takes on neutrals!

  • JAileen replied 2 years ago

    Great outfits, all of them. I especially like 1/2.

  • texstyle replied 2 years ago

    I love neutrals so all of these are great -  #1 is a favorite since I live in jeans most of the time.

  • Joy replied 2 years ago

    Bonnie, JAileen and Texstyle, Maneera and Shevia, thank you for mentioning #1. I wondered if this look is too young for me, but felt good in it. Shevia and Tanya, thank you for expressing a preference for 5 & 6. It helps me style those pieces to know what looks best.
