The last week or so has been insanely busy for me, with lots of deadlines looming and new assignments popping up out of nowhere. So busy that I’ve hardly had time to put much effort into my everyday ensembles. That’s one of the main reasons I’ve been keeping my outfits pretty simple recently, relying on basic pieces like solid-colored tees and skinnies that are easy to mix and match no matter what shoes, accessories or coat I’m wearing.
I kept with this minimalistic mindset today—black long-sleeved T-shirt, dark-wash jeans and olive suede booties—but breathed a bit of life into it with my favorite animal-print coat and go-to red lips. The mix of neutrals (yes, leopard print is a neutral!) with a pop of fiery red and a hint of gold jewelry is an effortless combo—just what I’m looking for on a day when my schedule is jam packed.
What outfits do you turn to when you need a chic look that takes seconds to put together?
