Today’s reader is tired of her black shoes… I wear black shoes far too often, including with grey slacks. Do you have any guidance on shoe colors and recommendations on what should go with grey?

We’re loving this cropped, fitted blazer, although not in the picture from Shopbop. This kind of blazer is a perfect way to dress up something with a bit more volume — a slightly billowy dress, t-shirt, or tank.

It’s $385 at Shopbop.com. Elizabeth and James Panama Blazer
