I’ve always heard that the best buildings have a strong foundation to match. In my opinion, the same can be said about a great outfit. Sometimes you just have to revel in the simple staples! I adore a great print, but the glory of being a Fashionista is being able to tackle the basics. I love how today’s Fashionista styled her effortless look for a day on the go. She is a prime example of how to rock basics with ease and an edge. She pairs a statement scarf with a black parka over a classic denim button-down and black sweater. Finally, she adds beige jeans with a cool pair of studded black boots. Check her out!
