My philosophy for dressing has always been about investing in really great basics and then sprinkling in more trendy accessories or pieces seasonally at a lower price point. Some of my best wardrobe pieces are basics that I may have invested in up-front but still have over 5-7 years later and they still look great.
While I wear a lot of black and neutrals, I think that putting together an effortlessly casual chic look that looks fabulous all the time, is an important thing to nail down each season. I for one am not a huge fan of leopard. I think it looks great on everybody else but not necessarily on me, unless it is in really small doses. Last year I bought my first pair of leopard flats, which I now wear often with all black and love them. I also love this look below integrating a skinny leopard belt with well selected neutrals. It’s an easy look to run around in, yet still look polished. Just add some gold bangles and voila!
1 | you can’t go wrong with a camel cashmere sweater. this v-neck version by J.Crew is simply a classic.
2 | these skinny black pants from Zara are a great fall staple. I picked up a pair of black skinny coated pants from Zara last year and they have turned out to be one of my best basics.
3 | the detail this look needs is in this belt.
4 | these black and gold earrings are a must have! I added them to my accessory collection last year and wear them all the time. I love the gold simple gold accent and get compliments on them all the time.
5 | these Lanvin flats are a no brainer. beautiful, classic and a basic that will take you across seasons for many years.
Wishing you a beautiful day,
