We're not going to call it the new white, because... well, light grey... but a lot of things we'd never wear in white suddenly become appealing when the brightness is dialed down just a little to an ivory or cream tone. Whereas white is neither warm nor cold, ivory is always warm. Think of it as the difference between fluorescent and incandescent light. Shown: Uniqlo ivory scarf and cashmere sweater. Jack spade olive corduroy blazer. Bonobos navy wool and cashmere trousers.
