Having color in your wardrobe is a must, but white, black and gray are classic! Building an outfit in these colors requires that you use the fashion formula so not to look drab.
If you remember the fashion formula is: Pattern + Texture + Color + Shine
Here our pattern is in the plaid button up shirt that will be worn under the gray sweater. The sweater and cap add texture to the outfit with a thick cable knit. The color can come from a clutch in your favorite color. The shine comes from the riding boots (which also lend texture). You can definitely play with this outfit by switching out the gray sweater with a colored one.
