Elegant Color Combonations

There are certain color combinations that exude elegance and sophistication to me.

When I want to take a step up from my usual jeans and tee look, I often reach for ivory pants and a black jersey knit 3/4 length sleeve top. Both these great pieces are from Fabrizio Gianni. They are made in the USA.

This bag is by Ralph Lauren via T.J.Maxx. The shoes are by Halogen via Nordstrom.
The wire wrapped cuff was something I picked up while on vacation in Hilton Head at S.M. Bradford Co.

I have always had a passion for rich color and texture. This elegant jacket by IC Collection fits my requirements for fit, texture, rich deep color and a style that can be worn many ways. I got it from ShopMyFairLady. I enjoy shopping with them because I get such great service and they never suggest things that are not right for me just to make a sale. 

I appreciate the versatility of brown, but it isn't always the right hue for my skin tone. This rich caramel brown is perfect! I will also wear this with all black, white, denim and even red.

The hem is slightly longer in the back which makes it perfect to wear as a jacket or a shirt partially tucked in. 

The buttery faux suede fabric is so soft to the touch. I know I will be wearing this classic for years to come. Those are the only types of pieces I am interested in adding to my wardrobe now.

Fifty, not Frumpy followers may use the code STREETSMART to get an additional 15% off their entire purchase at ShopMyFairLady. That's one of the many reasons I love them!

Great look. I love the addition of the shoes. It is true shoes can make or break an outfit. And you have a fabulous shoe collection. The jacket is very sophisticated. I like it.
