Finally tried this formula and I think it works. Well, enough so that I left the house in it! Just getting my car repaired & doing some errands.

Sweater was a cheapie from F21 -- I thought I'd try out the trend with a budget-friendly piece. Blouse from Madewell, booties from Asos, and AG Nikki jeans. I started with a grey-metallic blouse but really wanted a touch of bright color to lighten up the grey weather today.

Added a pic with outerwear -- it's rainy, so I wore the Burberry trench. For some reason the color in the pic looks blue but it's really teal. The black quilted Calvin Klein bag has been a workhorse!

Comments & suggestions welcome.
