One small detail can change the whole of many things. When it comes to food, a missing spice will leave a plate bland; as for in fashion, the added detail adds a small touch of precision to any outfit. Now this added detail can be a variety of elements, such as the watch that indisputably ties in sophistication or the perfect duffel bag, that is at once just right for class and the gym. Whatever it is, this element can stir up an otherwise flavorless combination.
On first glance, this week's Fashionista seems to wear the go-to attire: shorts and a tee-shirt, nothing too outside the standard. However upon closer look, this Fashionisto's style resides in his ability to incorporate small details that shift the entire outfit into a minimal, but nonetheless thoughtful, look. He wears a black scoop-neck tee-shirt with acid-wash jean shorts paired with jean colored lace-up shoes.
This Fashionisto must've had in mind the perfect color combination of his backpack and shoe pull tab (see details). The matching of both elements is much too precise for it to be an accident, and through this, he adds an element of detail that transforms the simplicity of his look. Not only are they matched perfectly, the uniqueness of the texture of his backpack brings in urban style to his attire as well.
So what did I learn? Always dot your i's and cross your t's, that tiny added effort can go can a long way.
