Back to Basics

Whenever I'm feeling like I'm in a fashion rut I know it's time to go back to basics. Classics like black and white paired with denim is tried and true fashion go-to. I love stocking up on quality essentials like this sheer turtleneck or tissue tees from BCBG. They are simple, awesome for layering and will never go out of style.

Here I wanted to add a little spice to look by playing with proportion and taking a nod from traditional men's style. The classic structured vest is updated with a longer hem line creating a sophisticated, chic look. Paired with some distressed denim for a little edge. And completing the men's inspired theme with a baroque detailed bootie.

My favorite kind of look is when there is an unexpected detail. I love the addition on this vest! Down the back is a zipper that acts as an adjustable vent and shows off a sheer panel that peeks through for some added subtle femininity in an other wise masculine piece.
