i used to be the queen of accessorizing. at any given time you could find me in a statement necklace, an oversized flower pin, or a bowed headband in my hair. and then there were those elusive moments where i thought it best to wear all three at once. clearly i needed an accessory intervention. sadly i never got one. instead, i just got older and realized sometimes less really is more (that, and wearing that many adornments makes me look 13 not 30).

nowadays when i put together an outfit, i try to keep coco chanel’s words in the back of my mind. the fashion icon once said “once you’ve dressed, and before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take at least one thing off.” the result is a simple, chicer look which showcases the clothing and the beautiful person beneath it rather than a sparkly bauble or hair clip.

if there ever was a “less is more” outfit, it’s a simple white t-shirt and jeans. i recently picked up one of everlane’s clean edge muscle tees and it’s the perfect fabric weight to avoid the dreaded “see-through shirt” syndrome. as far as jeans go, when i’m not wearing my madewell high-riser skinnies, i’m slipping into my favorite broken-in pair of gap’s always skinny jeans in a classic wash.

consider this look a return to the basics. i think coco would be proud.

outfit details:
clean edge muscle tee | everlane
always skinny jean | gap
brown braided belt | h&m (similar)
black sweater | madewell (similar)
suede booties | sam edelman
crossbody bag | marc jacobs
ensign necklace | madewell
mirrored sunglasses | urban outfitters (similar)
