I'd say stone was more a midway point between beige and grey...

Agree with FFF, more like fawn.

I don't think it suits non-blondes.

According to wikipedia, an American might refer to a light sandy grey as khaki whereas a European would call a drab green khaki.

(how very fascinating...)

sorry, this isn't really a 'winter look' is it? but, a virtuoso take on layering - even the pants are layered! I like how the layers look so fragile

I love this too while we're on the subject of colors Examples:

- lilac/aubergine
- camel/chocolate
- baby blue/navy
- celery/forest green
- etc.,etc...

helena...so a cool grey then?...


thanks poc...
i remember going through that whole nonsense in the early 80's about the difference btw olive and khaki...it really depends where you are...
but it has finally been completely accepted in the US that khaki and olive drab are not one and the same and it has alleviated a whole slew of confusion...

Great topic, thanks for posting!

I have quite a few Rozae Nichols lace and silk tops that I like to layer over 3/4 length white tees to keep them from looking too "precious". I also like empire/babydoll tops over long tanks and tees. It's a great way to transition from summer to fall. I'll try to take some pics.

Don't know if this is any help at all, but I just want to share the fact that I discovered the joys of layering two cashmere sweaters in one outfit last year...not only is it very warm, it also looks darn tootin cool I'll usually wear a thick cardigan over a thinner crewneck, maybe a collared shirt underneath. HOO-AH!

i've been experimenting a bit in my closet...
anyone else notice that this can get kind of expensive?...

i mean...
you need 2-3 tops to layer which means it costs 2-3 times more than just one...
