Here's another take on this shell / layers look. In today's "white is the new black" spirit, I have tried it three ways:

Chelsea 28 black/grey/metallic/white shell
Cream J Crew silk blouse
Cream J Crew western-ish booties


Emerson Fry white Mick Jeans
Citizens grey skinny jeans
J Crew charcoal wool pinstripes

My view: First, I am not sure that I like the shirt peeking out at the bottom. It feels like it's making the bottom welt of the shell scoot up in an less than flattering way

Second, I tried it with three different pants. Oddly, I liked the charcoal wool pants the best in the mirror but am not too fond of how they photographed here looking rather baggy. I liked how the light grey jeans looked, but I wore those jeans yesterday, so I decided to go with the white.
