Standout Neutrals

Necklace, Kenneth Jay Lane.  Jacket, Vintage.  Tank, Balenciaga.  Clutch, MCM.

Generally, I don't like to repeat outfits; I try to keep my fashion fresh by never combining pieces into the same exact look.    This combo, however, has been an exception to my rule:

Jeans, MNG.  Shoes, F21.

I love the look of neutrals and the idea wearing a crisp, clean, no-fuss outfit, but the minimalism trend isn't one that really suits my style.  I prefer to wear my neutral-colored pieces in a way that adds some intrigue.   One way to ensure that your outfits don't look too matchy-matchy is to rock pieces with different textures.  I'm drawn to the matching colors but clashing textures of this silk Balenciaga tank and vintage fur-trimmed jacket.  

The vintage MCM clutch and Kenneth Jay Lane pearl-and-panther necklace add some funky touches to an outfit comprised of delicate materials.   Jeans lend a casual vibe and nude pumps finish off the look!

BTW, all the elements of this outfit came from the same store: Second Time Around.  Check out their website for a list of locations and go get yourself some elegant neutrals to add to your closet!

  2. It's refreshing to see an on-trend ensemble that has elements not directly influenced by the exasperated 80's theme. Well done!
