We can inject interest into minimalist staple basics by pairing them with a bold statement piece. Whether luxurious fabrics or dramatic details, an eye-catching updated piece can breathe new life into an otherwise staid combination.
The bodysuit and flare-leg jeans (here) provide the base of the look. The strapless bra is here. My basic look is okay; however, it can be improved by a third piece. Why not a Moto-style denim jacket?
After spending the past few seasons assembling a wardrobe of varied basics, I’m ready to add a few statement items. These elements introduce modernity and fun. While not crucial, statement items can give a predictable ensemble personality. You may already have dramatic pieces you love in your collection.
The oversized, fully lined, cropped denim jacket makes me feel like a rock star. I’ve been eyeing it since early last fall, so when it went on sale here, I could no longer resist.
My skincare routine is here, and the makeup routine is detailed here. My lip color is often a combination of three or more colors. The lip pencil in the color Caprice is here.
If less obvious touches of “wild child” are more to your taste, fishnet tights add a subtle, daring surprise to a basic look. Similar heels are here. The small bag is from By Far and is a couple of years old.
Wine glass socks showcase Mr. Mickey’s wild side.
After we paused to take these photos, my handsome gentleman friend and I enjoyed a delightful evening at Gourmet and Company. We rarely go out to dinner now, so it was a special event.
My adventure partner enjoyed the grouper special very much.
My delectable entree was the Jilton Vegetarian (named after Mr. Mickey).
We also tried the local apple hand pie with housemade ice cream.
