Walking past Reiss London today, it was oddly, the boring beiges that stopped me. The trousers were tailored and beefy, and the major ribbing on the bottom of the sweater brought excitement to the neutrality. A regular trouser looks new right now, and more exclusive when it’s exaggerated. The other message this look says is settled, serious, chic. Add jolts to this neutral, patrician persona, with something trendy, bold nail color, or clunky shoes. As the days get chillier, the cozy-quiet of neutrals look smart. Add to it an interesting silhouette or fabric, and it’s striking.
