Fashion is all about self-expression. For some, this means embracing the trends and wearing extremes such as ornate military jackets or even men's shirts. For others, however, fashion is about the basics and a certain subdued sophistication. This Fashionisto exemplifies the latter method of expression with his updated basics and vintage influences.
The easiest way to update one's look for any season is to add a basic in the season's hottest color, in this case in the form of an aubergine henley. Combine this on-trend piece with understated yet inspired pieces such as a cargo jacket and perfectly worn chukkas and the look is elevated to something which transcends across seasons.
Hint: Feeling inspired? Head on over to J.Crew where you'll find versions of this Fashionisto's best pieces, from the boots to the jeans and the jacket. Don't forget the best part: the on-trend T-shirt! And who other than Alexander Wang would we look to for the perfect classic tee?
For men and women alike, the desire to be at the forefront of fashion often means fully embracing and attempting each of the latest trends. Take a cue from this Fashionisto and remember that pairing well-fitting, timeless pieces with small updates often leads to an impeccable end result.
