One of my secret business casual tricks involves khaki and black. Now don’t get me wrong. Khaki loves white best. But when High WASPs crave just a little wickedness, we go to the dark side.
Bringing khaki along for safety.
In a minimalist palette like this, best to keep the details subtle but not strict. In this case, that means black Beautifeel heels with a patent leather accent, small preppy gold hoops. Not posts. Something, after all, has to dangle.
Oh, and the usual men’s Rolex Cellini. With a brown alligator strap, brown can play too.
Long greying hair turns out to be an accessory on its own merits. Will wonders never cease?
Something about this outfit makes me feel as though I ought to be in Milan. Or Torino. Or anyplace that doesn’t include Park, Shire, or Village in its name. One can eke out a lot of excitement from very small adventures.
