One of the most popular colors for this season is the ivory. Ivory is a soft neutral color that is not white but embodies light browns and earth tones. It represents cleanliness, quietness and a slight touch of luster. Ivory evokes a sense of calm and sets the tone for elegance. Now business women all over can easily incorporate this fashionable color into their wardrobe.

Listed below are practical types that professional women can use to display the color ivory in their everyday wear!


Ivory is such a wonderful color for coats, jackets, scarves and gloves. Designers are becoming extra creative in the way they are styling ivory coats and jackets. Many designers are changing up the collar designs and even adding high contrast to the coat accessories. Women can purchase ivory coats and jackets with shiny black buttons or printed inner coat linings. They can also pair a printed or basic color scarf over their coats and jackets for a more fashionable appeal. As the weather gets cooler, women should consider purchasing ivory colored gloves instead of the basic black. These gloves can be bought in leather, acrylic and yarn crafted materials.
