As a Fashionista or Fashionisto, it’s really easy to get carried away with accessories, patterns, and silhouettes. But, sometimes it’s just as chic to keep things simple. You don’t need all the frills to stand out in an outfit. Classic, simplified shapes will make your look polished and timeless. It’s a breath of fresh air.
I saw this Fashionista looking sophisticated in a simple oversized sweater and jeggings. This sweater caught my attention because of its silhouette. This sweater is loose fitting in the bodice and then tight in the sleeves which gives the sweater a really cool shape. This fall and winter, try to tone things down by finding modern, uniquely fitted pieces whose shape keep them stylish and chic without having to add the extra embellishments. I found a great piece on ModCloth that has a really cool style being short in the front and long in the back. The key to mastering chic simplicity is to stick to basic lines, colors, and minimal accessories. If you find a great piece, that’s all you need in an outfit. Just pair it with jeans and flats or boots, like this Fashionista, and you are good to go!
Hint: Another cool way to keep things simple is the cape. If you want some variety in your wardrobe try this trendy style. Capes can be worn like sweaters or they can also be worn as coats. I found a great piece at Dillard’s that is more like a sweater, but I also found this ‘Morton Cape’ by Spiewak that can be worn as a coat.
