STYLE ADVICE: Casually Chic

It’s easy to get caught up in the idea that you have to wear bright colors to stand out. This Fashionista proves this idea wrong by sticking to a neutral color palette with a few timeless pieces, allowing her to make a stylish bang.

A classic base of stone washed jeans and a neutral sweater is a great starting point. This Fashionista chose pair her jeans with a thinly striped sweater. A little bit of pattern in a neutral garment helps focus the eye without being too overwhelming, and this sweater was the perfect piece to ground the look!

In the winter we all tend to throw on the same old jacket, that is probably black and probably quilted. Instead of letting the cooler temperatures hinder your style, use them as a chance to showcase more of your style. A slouchy coat, like this green army jacket, is the perfect garment to top off any look while still adding a bit of warmth.

Tying your accessories together is a great way to make your outfit both cohesive and classic. Cuffed jeans pair perfectly with booties, like these Chelsea boots, and allow you to show off your footwear. Black shoes and a brown bag used to be taboo, but the 21st century woman knows that a little bit of neutral clashing is fun, not a faux pas! This Fashionista ties all her accessories together with an understated lace choker to create a stylishly mismatched look.

The finishing touch on this classic ensemble is a perfectly polished makeup look. Try bold brows and a neutral lip to complete your outfit.
