Sometimes it’s easy to fall into the realm of simplicity when it comes to dressing, and often times people are just simply dressed a bit too basic. However, it is possible to be clad in all different types of rather simple pieces and still look like a Fashionista. Although this Fashionista wears fairly plain items, worn as a whole they work together to make her entire outfit far from boring — and the key is to correctly mix simple with something even more simple.
