Move over brown and black. Gray and navy want a turn in our closets.



Grayloft I'm feeling blue these days. And gray. Very gray. But that's not a bad thing.

Lots of us rely on brown and black as our staple neutral palette. They are safe, comfortable and convenient.

But this fall, navy and gray are jockeying for equal play in the world of neutrals, and I'm totally embracing them in my wardrobe. Both colors are versatile. They look great layered together or as backdrops for bursts of color. Neon, anyone?

Gray, my personal favorite of the moment, offers a softer touch to an outfit than its darker brethren. I love how rich pinks and purples really pop against it. Try a patterned scarf over a gray tee. Throw a navy cardigan over a silky gray blouse and vice versa. Confused about what color shoe to put with? Consider brown, silver or burgundy. Or pink. Okay, yeah, I'm obsessed with that color, too.
