Streamlined, practical, and calming: 7 tonal outfits for work and leisure.
There’s something calming about wearing neutrals. Perhaps it’s the easy wearability of colors like white, black, gray, and nude: shades don’t clash or make too loud of a statement.
Maybe it’s the aura of refined relaxation neutral colors exude. Tones like camel or biscuit conjure up images of country holidays spent basking in nature. Ivory and alabaster are reminiscent of long summer days spent at the seaside.
Wherever you find yourself this season, a tonal capsule wardrobe will bring streamlined elegance to your ensemble. Here are seven deliciously clean and crisp outfits that blend practicality with old aristocratic luxury:
1. Monday’s Polish
After savoring a decompressing weekend, it’s time to get back into the game once again.
Start your week on the right foot with a structured tonal outfit that’s appropriate for Monday’s rush. Our Silk Shirt in black features a glossy sheen that adds a little extra luxury to this workwear staple. Enhance the low-V neckline with a statement pendant or dainty layered necklaces.
Pair with pleated Edith Pants and strappy square heels for on-the-go practicality.
2. Tuesday’s Target
The life of a well-heeled woman can be hectic. When you’re rushing from one engagement to another, you want to look stylish but effortless.
For quiet sophistication, the Cannes Shirt features a straight-point collar, button-down front, and cuffed bishop sleeves that adds a little drama to this timeless cotton piece. Wear with the high-waisted Marron Pants in natural brown for serious business contrast. Pair with a strappy pair of stilettos for legs that look long and slender.
3. Wednesday Whimsy
Celebrate reaching midweek by recentering yourself with a good morning yoga session or a refreshing new skincare routine. Taking time to take care of yourself in the middle of your engrossing schedule is crucial to keeping a well-balanced, positive life.
Indulge yourself with a dash of whimsy with our Celine Dress. With its flowy fabric, tiered hem, billowy sleeves, and delicate eyelet details, you’ll break the monotony of your workweek and feel closer to the weekend.
For a more minimalist look, the Classic Shirt Dress combines the streamlined practicality of a pocketed button-down with the elegant luxury of soft rayon fabric and graceful side slits.
4. Wind-Down Thursday
Fancy some after-hours cocktails out on a roof deck? Or perhaps an old Hollywood movie marathon? Whether you’re drinking wine with the ladies or soaking up old Hollywood glamour, let yourself kick back and relax.
The Ines Midi Dress is a versatile piece for going out or staying in. Its criss-cross, thin straps accentuate the shape of your neck and shoulders, while its hand-made Kerawang embroidery lends a touch of the exotic to your outfit.
The Elegant Maxi Dress is also a good alternative. Figure-flattering with a deep V neckline and a front slit, its lightweight fabric is also comfortingly loose and relaxed.
5. Friday, I’m in Love
Friday could not have come sooner. Salute the beginning of the weekend by slipping into something sultry and feminine.
Heading out for a candle-lit dinner with your beau or gracing a friend’s new art exhibit? Our Bamboo Wide Leg Jumpsuit is an ensemble to remember with its silky bamboo crepe fabric, sexy waist-low neckline, and open back. Wide legs and billowy sleeves add extra allure to the piece.
6. Saturday Lounger
Dolce far niente: the sweetness of doing nothing.
Saturdays call for sleeping in, cozying it up with an exciting new novel, or getting a golden tan by a pool.
Whatever form of rest and recreation you choose to take, you’ll look dazzling in our maxi cover-ups in Fawn or Golden. Featuring a low scoop neck and a V open back, you can wear this dress over your swimsuit or as is when you’re lounging at home.
Hosting an intimate Saturday night dinner party? The Grace Midi Dress, with its figure-flattering A-line silhouette, will have you looking every bit the enchanting hostess that you are.
7. Slow Sunday
Plans for the day: go to the farmer’s market to buy cheese and a bouquet of peonies.
When your schedule is as clear as a summer’s day, it’s time to get playful with your outfit.
Go ahead. Take a bike ride or watch for fireflies out on your lawn. It’s Sunday, and the day is yours to spend as your heart desires.
Who says neutral is boring? Neutral colored outfits can take you from Monday to Sunday and all the days in between.
And the best part? The versatility: you can mix and match different neutral pieces without having to worry about clashing hues.
Elegant sophistication doesn’t always have to be so bold. Take a look at the world around you and appreciate the refined beauty of white lilies, black mares, and golden sand. Neutral colors mimic the shades found in nature itself.
For an aristocratic yet subdued appeal, build a tonal capsule wardrobe that fits every occasion.
