Splurge vs Save- Ladies Who Lunch In Neutrals

11 total views

By request, I have an upscale outfit for an attorney who meets with high-level clients and needs to dress the part. These looks remind me of an elegant outfit for joining friends for lunch in the city, dinner out, visiting a museum, etc. It’s comprised of neutral classics with a polished vibe.

CAMEL COAT / BLACK CASHMERE SWEATER / IVORY SKIRT / RIDING BOOTS / TOP HANDLE PURSE / LEOPARD PRINT SCARF / PEARL EARRINGS / LIPSTICK in Chili Morocco

A great camel coat is timeless, so I started there. I love them over everything from a great pair of jeans to a pretty dress. These are both warm-based, but there are plenty in the taupe family with cool undertones. A black cashmere crewneck and ivory skirt are versatile pieces you can easily mix with the rest of your wardrobe.

SOME COOL-TONED CAMEL ALTERNATIVES

I added black riding boots, a lady-like top-handled purse, pearl earrings, and a leopard print scarf that ties the colors together. With this combo, classic red lipstick seemed natural.

HERE THEY ARE FOR A SIDE-BY-SIDE COMPARISON

The save outfit comes in at around $824, and the splurge is closer to $2,118. Could you tell which was which? What tipped you off?

This was the first time my husband guessed wrong :).

Thanks for reading, and remember to wear what makes you feel confident.
