Growing up, I’m sure we’ve all heard the phrase “less is more” at some point or another. Personally, I’ve always interpreted and coined this into my own little thing known as “simplicity into complexity.” Basically, the more subtle and simplistic choices you make, end up producing a desired outcome of both complex expression and intricacy. Take the recent Kanye West x adidas Originals collaboration, for example. With an incorporation of striking and dramatic models, the minimalistic nude-colored body suits were able to avert your attention and focus onto the main staple pieces being displayed for the collection. A genius move on the part of Mr. West, though, would we really expect anything short of brilliance?

Following in the code of “less is more,” here we have this Fashionisto demonstrating just that. With the choices of neutral-based colors, his gray hoodie and pair of black ripped jeans emit the focus onto the strong coding of brown being displayed in both his staple pieces, the elongated overcoat and slip-on suede chukka boots. With this minimalism in affect, the primary brown is able to overtake both the black and gray in a matter that produces a complemental abstraction. From the rocker-chic inspired garments, this Fashionisto is able to channel his inner Yeezus, or maybe, more of the artistry paired to that of Lenny Kravitz? Either way, the precision of style displayed today is impeccable.

How To: Want to imitate this look? If you have a piece such as new shoes or a jacket you’re trying to show off, then go for more neutral-based colors in contrast to your staple in order to produce a stand out effect!
