As COVID restrictions move many brunettes  away from coloring their hair – allowing  unpigmented strands  to mix in – they find the overall softening effect moves their Key Wardrobe Neutral from the previous Chocolate Brown or Soft Black toward Taupe.  Now that’s a very sophisticated Neutral, but not always an easy one to find.  I can help …

JJill just introduced a collection of separates in a beautiful Taupe shade (that they inexplicably call “Cocoa”).  Here’s a sampling, including scarves and fashion jewelry in a mix of taupe and palest pink.

Many of JJill’s accent colors have a smoky tone that is especially compatible with Taupe too.

Taupe accessories can be tough to find, but here is a beautiful shoe – “Denise” pump by Corso Como – from DSW that hits the right color note, looks a bit sexy and is still surprisingly comfortable.

And a beautiful textured leather Commodious Tote from  Sized to hold notebooks, folders or even an iPad plus all the day’s necessities.  (The tote is a lighter shade than the shoe.)

Need a comfort shoe instead or in addition?  Check out Jemy Flat, Paulina Loafer, Nebula Mule, Kellye Loafer, or Liliana Loafer.  Note, I have not seen these shoes in person to check exact colors.

From our own online shop, here are some beautiful scarves – all very limited quantities – that can accent Taupe combinations:

Blush Poppies           Brick Red Floral             Abstract Animal

And for the sewing enthusiasts among you – these options from our online fabric collection:

Have fun shifting your wardrobe in this sophisticated new direction.
