Long-Sleeve Colorblock Sweater
Vince
Sold by: Neiman Marcus

Fit Guide
This refined color combination pairs perfectly in Vince’s cashmere sweater. The colorblocking says it all and steps up this otherwise basic (in the best possible way) sweater. You’ll reach for this over and over, whether it’s with your jeans or a pair of stylish jog pants, as shown. We’d even wear it with a simple black pencil skirt, highlighting the juxtaposition of a slouchy sweater with a feminine, fitted skirt.

Soft, Transitional Neutrals: a Color Story Perfect for that Summer Heat & Beyond

While black or white are always safe neutrals to wear – and we love them – we are very excited by the softer color palette of greys and sands that are just as wearable. Pantone has even picked Paloma (pale, colorless grey) and Sand (a soft, light tan) as some of this season’s fashion colors. These colors are inspired by nature, making us think of sandy beaches and pale blue/grey skies. There is just something so feminine and sophisticated about wearing these colors head-to-toe or together. And pairing them with everything from soft pastels to deep blues or plums easily transitions them from summer to fall.

So, let’s get in to some of our favorites.

Throughout the week, pop over to our Fashion Finds to find more of our favorite neutrals to buy for work (Tuesday), after 5 (Wednesday), and casual wear (Thursday). And if you like something, just click on the “Shop It” button to buy it from our suggested retailer. Let us know what you think in the comments below and on social media.

We love the tailored look of this structured bag from Kate Spade. It has a detachable strap if you prefer wearing it over your shoulder or cross-body (great for a day of shopping), and the short handles look very chic on their own. If you carry a separate tote or gym bag to the office, this is an ideal companion, as the rest of your belongings will easily fit. The muted grey brings this classic silhouette to a new, modern level that you will get plenty of use out of, since it’s still such a neutral color.

Christopher Blue's relaxed fit and higher rise just adds to the comfort and versatility of this twill cropped pair of pants. The color and style is perfect for the end of the summer, as you can wear a simple tee with them as effortlessly as a light cotton sweater as the weather begins to cool down.

The flattering zipper detail really makes this sandy, neutral dress. It wraps around the higher neckline, and you can zip – or unzip – to whatever looks best on you, which is great for all chest sizes. No necklace required for this versatile piece. This can work at the office (pair it with some simple earrings and pumps), just as easily as it can for a dinner or less formal event, like a shower (you can go bolder with a chunky bracelet and more open shoes).

Nic + Zoe - Honeycomb Straight Leg Stretch Pants
The honeycomb pattern of this fresh pale grey and crisp white is a fun way to jazz up your look without having to rely on a lot of color to do so. A small pattern like this is slimming, so it’s perfect for Nic + Zoe’s relaxed fit. Wear it with a simple tee or tank and a drapey cardigan.

There is so much to love about this Splendid button down shirt. Not only is it in the beautiful pale grey we're talking about this week, it so soft and easy. The ribbed inset detail on the sides add to the comfort - not to mention, the style. While Splendid is a contemporary brand, this is a looser fit. You'll wear it now with short or lightweight pants, and you'll get plenty of use out of it through the fall on its own or layered under a soft blazer.

The neutral sandy color is an updated alternative to white or cream, but can be worn the same way. This easy fitting Joie silk blouse works with neutrals (white, black, navy), as well as color (from pale blue to forest green), so it’s a great year round blouse. You have the option to roll up the sleeve making it special on it’s own, but the Henley neckline works well under a blazer, too.
