Within the last few years I’ve found myself increasingly drawn towards simple looks, in part because of the cool, laid-back vibe I get from the fashion bloggers who follow minimalist trends, but especially because of the time they save me in getting dressed. However, I often get tired of seeing the same styles over and over and am always looking for ways to differentiate my looks from others. The Off-White spring 2016 collection offered a new take on the effortless, minimalist styles of young modern women through Virgil Abloh’s take on the classic jeans and white T-shirt combination. Using such a timeless pairing could have led to static and tired looks if it weren’t for the designer’s careful, artistic manipulation of the denim and his unique vision. Rather than having the “I’ve seen this before” feeling while looking at the show, I was inspired by the innovative, fashion-forward outfits that featured patchwork denim, grid-patterned fabric and a variety of creative white tops.

As a self-proclaimed jean addict, I was most excited by the use of patchwork denim in the show because the style offers an effortless way to change up my usual minimalist looks. I recently purchased a patchwork skirt to add to my collection of denim clothing and it’s a perfect alternative to the high-waisted shorts and front button-up skirt that I’ve grown tired of. Taking inspiration from the Off-White show, I wore a white T-shirt to keep things simple and let the patchwork denim stay front and center. I added some pointy toe nude pumps with a low heel to add the same touch of sophistication that the models showed on the runway. As a final touch, I grabbed a beige structured purse with some pretty gold detailing to match with my simple gold necklace.

This look was so easy to pull together and had the perfect mix of classic and trendy styles that, combined, gave that effortless vibe that comes from the classic denim and T-shirt combination.
