I think that one of the greatest things about style is that it is a way to say who you are, without actually having to speak at all. While I always enjoy completing my look with a trendy piece or bright pop of color, sometimes it’s nice to just keep things simple. Using your fashion sense to communicate can be just as effective as using your words. Most of the time it’s best to keep things short and sweet. It wasn’t until I fully understood the power of a fabulous ensemble that I truly understood the idea that some things really are better left unsaid.

Simplicity is a sharp approach to styling. Not only will a simple outfit express subtle confidence, but it is also a classy response to the things that are being said around you. The simple look works well when you dare to layer your basic garments with accessories. This dynamic styling technique is a chic way to make a straightforward statement that is too often complicated by our own words.

This Fashionista caught my eye because of her sleek simplicity that was by no means understated. She wore a comfortable pair of leggings with a cozy, loose-fitting top to create a fashionably plain look. Her simple choices allowed this Fashionista’s voice to be heard directly through her accessories. A cool, down-to-earth vibe was given off from her minimalistic bangle bracelets and casually layered necklaces. Despite the pattern on her scarf, it still made for a complementary accessory to her simple style because if incorporated the same hues as her top.

How To: Make your statement in simplified style by staying true to yourself. Choosing easy and functional pieces such as basic leggings and minimalistic tops will allow you say what’s on your mind in a fierce yet silent way. But don’t forget the accessories: capturing the essence of this look is all about layers. Layering necklaces, scarves and bracelets is a fun option that can be manipulated throughout the day, ultimately giving you the voice to speak as softly or boldly as you please.
