Gray anything is a worthy wardrobe investment. Being a neutral, it is very versatile and matches just about everything. This time of year I start to break out a lot of gray because it’s a good transitional color. While all the stores have rolled out their spring merchandise and bright hues, maybe you don’t feel like wearing bright pink and green in January. So, tone down those vibrant pieces by mixing in some gray tones.
How about this outfit for under $100?! No matter near or far from San Francisco, this dress is perfect for you! Its draped cut makes it suitable for all body types and it is a great layering piece. Being in Cali, I was able to get away with bare legs, but it is the perfect length to wear over some printed leggings if you’re in a cooler climate. Anyway, I added some glam to this rather simple dress by pairing it with a paisley navy blue scarf and high heeled knee-high taupe boots (only $40 and available in black too!). I turned it up a notch with my gold and blue Ray-Ban mirrored sunglasses, and further accessorized with a glitzy watch, gold bangles and a statement ring.
As the sun started to go down, I put on a white blazer for added warmth and a floppy felt hat. See how easy it was to change the look and feel of this dress with just a jacket and hat? Imagine all you could do with the accessories already in your closet!
