23 Feb Spring Green: Sheath Dress and Oatmeal Jacket
It’s 60 plus degrees here in NYC and it is officially starting to feel like spring! I also love it when there are days when I leave work and it’s not pitch black outside… In any case, it’s inspired me to incorporate more color into my outfits, like this green sheath dress I bought for a business school recruiting dinner.
I love colored sheath dresses because I think they’re so versatile and easy to dress up or down and mostly appropriate for any professional setting. A key here is to avoid buying any dresses that are too form fitting or low cut–this defeats the purpose of the garment being appropriate for work settings.
Recently, I also purchased this oatmeal colored Reiss jacket, which I have been wearing non-stop (when it’s not 60 degrees out anyhow). In my opinion, oatmeal is the new black! You can certainly wear it with black but it also looks great with more casual outfits like jeans and a white T.
