I partnered up with a good friend of mine some weeks ago to contribute to a beautiful portrait series he had been working on (which you should check out here). For this shoot, I picked out three really simple looks to show you how a lot of times, less really is more.
Classic silhouettes, no adornment, raw.
Sometimes, a good combination of color says it all. Fall is my favorite season for color due to my irrefutable inclination towards those deep berries and rich jewel tones. I also love a good mustard. All this outfit entails is a round neck t-shirt, tapered trousers, a single breasted blazer, and flat oxfords that work together in colorful harmony.

This next one is a lot simpler than it looks. It challenges proportion with the longer length shirt and four inch pumps but as long as you balance it with a shorter top and some tapered trousers, it works. Hats also add another dimension.
Then of course there's the all black leather on leather look which is a no brainer. What matters in this case is the quality of the leather and making sure you're considering the fit and longevity of the garment. The more you wear a great leather piece, the more the leather conforms to your body making it that much more personal. Leather jackets are pieces you want to invest in. You will wear it forever but even if you don't, it will read dollar signs...that is, if you invest in the right piece.
