Divine and Refined Look of the day: Beige and Grey

Neutral color blocking is ultra chic at the Prabal Gurung Spring 2011 runway

Okay girls, now that all the festivities are dying down we can finally get back to real fashion, and on this grey, rainy spring day (yes, it IS spring) why not talk about the color combo I've been in love with all winter: Beige and grey. A lot of us like to stay neutral when it comes to fashion because it's just safer...and grey and beige is the perfect 'vacation' from all black.  It's completely safe and so chic! One of things I love about this combo is you can mix several shades of each and you never have to worry about matching perfectly...the more 'off' you are the better the look. So have no fashion fear here!
The warmth of beige vs. the cool of grey offset each other and create a soothing balance no matter how you throw your outfit together. This is my compilation:
Nine West Cat Eye Sunglasses $38, Mini Zip Jacket $128, Polka Dot Scarf $19, Jimmy Choo Snakeskin Clutch $675, Pella Moda Platform Sandal $180,  Karen Millen Skirt (sold out, sorry!),  Wood andPyrite Ring $70
This Tod's ad epitomizes how fabulous the combo is. She look DIVINE!
Although there's no grey here, the all neutral palette looks fabulous with a dramatic eye and a nude lip. When using neutral colors, try choosing strong shapes and textures for visual interest.
Finish your look with a gorgeous 'greige' nailcolor. From left to right: Essie  Mink Muffs $8, Chanel  Particuliere $23, OPI You Don't Know Jaques! $8
This color combo adds mega polish in home decor too. Break the rules by combining beige/gold with grey/silver.

Be cool and stay warm ;)
'til next time...
