Gray is great alternative color, when you want a break from dark black tones; or the pressure of the crisp and clean white. It’s definitely a color that has been growing on me and in my wardrobe, despite my loyal love of black clothing for many years. I enjoyed mixing different patterns, and shades of gray for this look, which turned out to be a sophisticated school girl look .
In addition, my love for thrifting has really grown over the past year, as I am finding more and more great staple pieces for usually less, as I would pay at a fast fashion retail or department store . Coincidentally, all of the clothing pieces from this look are from the thrift store.Starting with the Maje wool plaid skirt, that I have been wanting to wear. Since this skirt is thick, I went for the knits and tried a couple of sweaters and liked how the Club Monaco argyle sweater complemented the skirt. Next, I tried on two coats and decided on this gray blazer coat from Jack by BB Dakota.
Layering, I put on some gray tights from New York & Company and paired the outfit with some Jeffery Campbell Oxfords. The oxfords came with a gold plate but I removed them. Adding the finishing touch, I went with a cream, blue and gray plaid scarf from Century 21 for warmth and I liked how it added some light shades to the look.
I walked up the Hudson River, checked out some art installations along the way and enjoyed the cold breeze in this proper, but not so proper attire. Minus the shoes, everything in this look was $25 or less. There are a lot of inexpensive good quality items out there. We just have to have be patience and learn how pick them out.
