ALL IN THE DETAILS: Add a Little Edge

A simple outfit is like a blank canvas; you can do with it what you want. You’re the artist. This Fashion Institute of Technology student pairs two basic essentials together to create a simplistic ensemble, a black knit long sleeve T-shirt and a pair of black jeans. Her accessories are not too bold so they don’t overshadow her laid back and effortless California style, yet they serve as a vital purpose in completing this look. Her hat, especially, ties this whole look together. She keeps her jewelry very minimal and practical with a simple bar necklace and a watch. Her snakeskin booties and aviators are instrumental, helping to give this look the edge it needs. Her accessories work together to create her look rather than one statement piece stealing all the attention.

This look is perfect for a girl on the go like this Fashionista since it’s very versatile. It can easily adjust from day to night by adding and removing a few accessories. To transition this look from day to night, she could take away the sunglasses, add a little more eye makeup, and add a leather jacket. To really elevate this look to another level of edge, she could wear the leather jacket as a cape or off the shoulder as seen on the Balenciaga fall 2016 runway.

A simple T-shirt and a pair of black jeans are the perfect base for any ensemble. So many looks can be built from this pairing as a foundation by adding your own personal touches. It’s a great way to showcase your personal style by letting your own decisive choices tie your whole outfit together.
