For our latest edition of the Freshness Grid, we’re mostly forgoing color to keep things simple, refined and versatile. On those days when you don’t want to put a lot of thought into your clothes but still want to maintain some semblance of style, neutral is the way to go. Save a pop of color for your accessories, but otherwise, stick with basic grey and black.
