When getting dressed in the morning, it is common to want to stick to the basics: a T-shirt, jeans and, when it is chilly out, a cardigan. Making these simple items look trendy and chic might be a challenge. So incorporating small details like a trim or a pop of print can make a look complete.
This Fashionista styles her black T-shirt and light-washed jeans with a more structured black cardigan. The structure of the cardigan defines her shoulders and dresses up her look. The longer length and boucle fabric creates more visual interest, and the leather trim makes the jacket trendier. Incorporating different textures is a great way to add dimension to a monochromatic look.
She keeps her accessories to a minimum by finishing her look off with big black sunglasses and leopard loafer flats. Leopard is a classic print and adds some color to her otherwise simple look. Accessories are a great way to include animal print in your outfit because it is not overbearing but still makes a statement. Animal prints can often times act as a neutral print that can look great with many different looks and colors.
Though this look is very minimalistic, it still looks like a complete outfit. Incorporating different textures can go a long way when one doesn’t want to make a statement with jewelry. This Fashionista shows that less is more.
How To: The easiest way to create different textures is by choosing to wear different textiles. For example, pair an open knit sweater with with a woven jacket.
