WIW: Matching everything to an odd piece

Our weather is so crazy lately, it's been high 70s and low 80s all week, and today the high is 40.  I'm so over the cold!  I needed my fleece tights, and oddly enough, the only color I have is purple, so I immediately thought of this brown sheath + gray ponte jacket.  It's a combo I haven't tried before, and I like it.  I pulled it together with a belt that I love and probably haven't worn in about a year (because it never goes with anything!).

    I think that does work very well, due to your choice of a nice tonal look in the cool color range. Not that you couldn't have done a purple pop with red or something, but this gives a quieter look if that works better for your workplace.

    Nice outfit. Great statement necklace.

    Great outfit! I absolutely love colored tights peaking out between tall boots and a skirt. And yours are such a beautiful color.

    That's pretty superb! I'll have to see if I can apply these colour lessons to anything... I have all these colour tights I no longer know how to wear.

    I accidentally discovered that dark purple/eggplant looks great with dark brown leather about a month ago when trying on booties at the mall.  I also have purple fleece leggings.

    I've been meaning to wear them together in an outfit,   your's looks so lovely - the tones  and shapes and bits of detail work together so well, especially with the gray, I'm re-inspired!

    Fantastic color combo! You look terrific and ready for cold weather (although 40 would seem like a heat wave to me right now!).

    What a great combination. The colors all look so good together. Thanks for posting!

    Very nice colour combo. Purple and brown is lovely and I would not have thought of putting the grey jacket over it. Lovely.
