If you are like me, you tend to repeat the same outfit over and over again. I keep on finding myself asking, what articles of clothing I can mix and match? 99% of the time I'm in all black, and I have acquired some new chic black pieces, like these cargo pants with the statement zippers. During Autumn, layering is one of the best things you can do; logic-wise and style-wise.
Classic Top with Versatile Bottom
I started with my base - the black pants which are relatively "street style", if you will. Keeping it in the neutral family, I selected a grey fitted sweater, although the outfit seemed bland. I added a pair of red "sock sneakers" to give the outfit a bright pop, but something was seemingly missing. I was staring at my closet going over what I could layer that could still be polished yet casual. The epitome of effortless chic is looking put together with modern elements; such as red sneakers and zippers on your pants.
Play with unexpected colors, styles, textures.
