|Banana Republic metallic trim sweater|
Several of you mentioned in comments on yesterday's post that high contrast prints are harder for you to wear due to your own softer coloring. I'm in the same boat, so looked up some pieces that will work better for us. In addition to the Banana Republic Sweater Jacket, the Eileen Fisher tee, and the Banana Republic dot scarf shown yesterday, here are some additional suggestions for those who are drawn to geometric prints but need a softer look.
|Land's End felted wool jacket|
|Ella Moss sweater. Neutral but not boring.|
|MARC by Marc Jacobs silk/cashmere scarf|
|Marni coat from Outnet, très Mod! Think one would need some height to carry this off, however.|
Deviating a bit from my Stripes-and-Dots theme, I'm also going to recommend this jacket from Talbot's, now quite discounted:
|Talbots Buffalo Plaid jacket|
Another suggestion is to look for stripes or dots that are very small and close-set. This will give the impression of a more blurred and lower contrast pattern.
