Classic Neutral Work Outfits Vol. 5

Boston weather has been super fickle, so I have just a few more layered looks before we transition to spring style! If you live in a climate where coats are already put away for the season, I hope the easy neutral color combos in these looks can still be helpful for getting dressed in the morning. For more work outfit ideas, see my recent post on 5 Classic work outfit pairings.

1. White + shades of gray

    Hi Jean,

    Your Edited Pieces reversible coat is one my favorite buys this year. Please help my wardrobe out by releasing the coat in gray/black (or gray/navy!)! Looking forward to future releases.

    Hello Jean – You are so lovely and present the clothes so beautifully! Why does Zara, (model wearing the first coat you show), use a model who looks angry and appears to hate what she’s wearing? I always look forward to your emails! Thank you so much for presenting petite clothes in such an approachable and lovely way!
