With celebrities like Rihanna and Miley Cyrus photographed wearing everything from thigh-high leather boots to money-patterned dresses, it can be difficult to remember that sometimes simplicity is key. Working off a few basic pieces and adding interesting accessories is a great way to showcase your personality in a unique way.
I spotted this Fashionista on a particularly hot afternoon looking nothing but cool from head to toe. I loved how she paired a casual black tank top with a pair of black shorts, creating an incredibly flattering silhouette. She also added a cream-colored cardigan, ideal for chilly classrooms. What really struck me about this Fashionista’s ensemble was the way she accessorized. She added a lovely PANDORA charm bracelet as well as a few Alex and Ani bracelets and a gorgeous ring with a black stone. She also wore a beautiful light blue statement necklace, adding a simple splash of color to the black-on-black ensemble. What initially caught my eye were the black flats with spikes. The edgy addition perfectly balances out the feminine basics and adds a totally unexpected twist to the outfit.
The great thing about working with basic pieces is that it gives you free reign to accessorize to the max! Try a plain white T-shirt and jeans with an eye-catching necklace for a simple outfit that speaks for itself. You can also take a note from this Fashionista and rock a black tank and black jeans. Dress it up with a pair of hot pink heels and a bright lipstick for a look nobody would dare call basic.
Never underestimate the power of a great tank top or jeans that fit just right. Pair those basics with some standout accessories for an effortlessly chic look.
