Toffee Tones with Coach


This season, I’ve found myself constantly gravitating towards neutral tan tones – camel, cognac, khaki, toffee… All of the tans! It’s the perfect complement to black and white and an easy way to add some subtle color to an otherwise monotoned look. I am perennially a fan of suede, so when I laid eyes on these Coach suede sneakers in the brand’s classic saddle brown, it was love at first sight. Rich suede paired with a fresh white rubber sole. These shoes are easily dressed up or down. A sophisticated upgrade on a classic sneaker silhouette.

For their first wear, I put together this look starting with the shoes first. I wanted to highlight their toffee brown color, so I kept things simple with white jeans, a light heather grey cashmere sweater and a black, Coach leather varisty jacket. A camel colored scarf finished off the look and brought the tan tones to the forefront.

What do you think of this outfit? Are you a fan of tan tones too?

      Oh yes, burgundy is amazing too! Love the warm, rich colors in the fall/winter.
