STYLE ADVIDE OF THE WEEK: Minimalistic Meets Grunge

There’s absolutely no doubt that a stylish, yet cozy, coat is a staple in any winter wardrobe, so why not invest in a cotton fleece sweater that is cut like a coat to create that perfect effortless look?

This minimalistic outfit, pulled together by this Fashionista, displays how some grunge elements, added to a couple simplistic pieces, can create such a laid-back look. This Fashionista is able to play up her feminine side by showing her bondage-style bralette, creating a focal point on the outfit under her plain white tee. By slightly tucking her T-shirt into her black distressed jeans (similar here and here), she gives shape and texture to the look, without being lost in the oversized coat. The relaxed vibe of the outfit is pulled together with the addition of the gray car coat. Although harsh in other fabrics, the structured collar and boxy silhouette of this piece are softened with the cotton fabric and loose fit. Sticking with the monotone pattern, this sleek gray coat adds class to the ensemble while drawing all its elements together seamlessly.

This Fashionista wore her outfit with a classic monogrammed cross-body bag, a pair of practical ankle boots and then finished the look off by layering some of her favorite rings. With her fierce hair color, I would say this Fashionista is always accessorizing with a pop of color!
