Would they find them too simple, or too colorless?

Most likely.

Modern Chinese women, especially those under 40, are wearing plainer outfits than their ancestors.

Without too much decoration, especially embroidery, their wardrobe is often built on three basic neutral tones: black, white and gray.

Such colors, which can also include navy and brown, are shades generally approved as the best choice for working people.

The palette is visually docile and creates a subdued feeling for most.

The new Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, is a master of using neutral shades. Almost all of her outfits in public appearances are neutral-toned.

Here are some of her preferred looks, which may help you master her style for daily business.
