Happy Thursday! I’m back in the dressing room this week trying on gray. Smack dab in the middle of black and white, gray can be warm or cool depending on its undertones and be subdued or loud, depending on its pattern. As usual, the walls were painted a warm yellow which tends to make me look slightly ill.
I love the blanket plaid wraps I’m seeing everywhere this fall. I spotted this Eileen Fisher Serape in the petite department. Shaping at the back neckline keeps it hanging straight so it won’t slip off.
Very lightweight and airy, I love the fringe. Since my shoulders are very square I felt this shape and pattern looked well…square on me. It’d be more flattering on a curvy woman.
Next, I tried on this Nic+Zoe Pyramid Twirl Jacket. The pattern is irregular and it’s not technically a plaid, but I like the mix of grays.
It has a waterfall front edge dipping to a longer hem in back. It sways when you walk and felt more graceful on me than the Eileen Fisher wrap.
It’s got a sewn on half belt on both sides that I would either cut off, or tie in back. It looked too bulky tied in front for me.
Then I tried on this Alpine Sweater Jacket from Nic+Zoe. It’s collarless with pointed lapels and a purple and gray plaid at the bottom.
It’s fitted through the back with princess seaming and really flattering.
The front angles down slightly so it’s plaid is diagonal. It’s very slimming and would be fun over jeans, a black dress or pants. I really like this one.
These are all available in petite and regular sizes. A few are available in plus sizes. Finally, brands are catching on!
Do you wear much gray?
Have a terrific day ladies.
