Hello, Fashionistas! This week I am bringing you some simple, yet necessary style advice. Now that fall is around the corner and the chilly days are starting to sneak their way into the weather forecast, I can officially say that layering season has begun! I personally love to layer, which is why fall has recently become one of my favorite times of the year.

My lovely friend is sporting some perfect layering with the one and only flannel. This piece of clothing is timeless and you can never go wrong with throwing it in your bag or tying it around your waist for accessorizing and accessibility. The weather in Seattle has been a bit unpredictable these past few weeks, which can be expected when living in the Pacific Northwest. This requires light layers; the perfect transition pieces for the fall months that happen to be right around the corner.

The best part about this look is that it is so simple, yet all the pieces work together nicely to create dimension and texture. The sneakers add a sporty throwback vibe and the layered necklace balances out the casual feel making it more sophisticated and chic. Some may say that this look doesn’t make you branch out of your comfort zone and that may be accurate. However, I can speak for myself and other Fashionistas when I say that not every day is a statement day. It is important to have simple basics that you can fall back on when the creative juices aren’t flowing as much as they normally are. The small details tie all the different elements together making it coherent, yet comfortable.

For the upcoming months, don’t forget about those staple pieces that you may have purchased a while ago or pushed to the back of your closet. Believe me, they will come in handy and you will thank your future self for keeping them on hand. There will be days when you don’t want to try out a new fur vest or booties and that’s okay. Some days it’s important to remember that simplicity is key. Embrace the basics because they will always be there for you!
