FASHION FROM ABROAD: Back to the Basics

When it comes to personal style here in London, looking put together and cohesive is extremely important. Fashionistas are extremely aware of what pieces look good together and focus on this when they shop, instead of buying one piece without any regard for what it might look good with that already exists in their wardrobe. Surveying the clothes you already own is a smart and effective way to go about layering and outfit pairings. In this way, you avoid duplicating a piece and can think of innovative and fresh ways to wear things you already own mixed with your new finds.

I spotted this Fashionista in Hyde Park doing just this, as she pairs a standard pair of black skinny jeans with a creme silk top with a vintage rose-colored blazer she already had. She completes the look with a leather shoulder bag and brown moccasins. To recreate the look, I would wear dark jeans like these by Acne and this blouse from Topshop. Top the look off with this blazer in a blush shade also from Topshop. Moccasins like these from Frye and this satchel from Urban Outfitters.

Hint: Don't worry too much about matching when you are creating an outfit similar to this one. A navy blue or brown blazer would also work great with this top and bottom combination. If you want to easily transition this look from day to night, throw on a pair of heels to dress up the look even more like these nude pumps by Black Rooster.
