With the hustle and bustle of a busy city, a functional outfit is much needed for running errands on the weekends or meeting friends for brunch. We’ve put together a few key essentials to create an effortless look and chances are if you’ve seen me around the city, this is my go-to: sheer blouse + skinny jeans. Stick to the basics and you can’t go wrong!
Bottoms: I practically live in skinny jeans! A staple in my closet and for a good reason. They create a flattering look on a wide range of body types and can be worn with practically anything.
Top: I’ve recently developed a major love for sheer blouses. Since skinny jeans are so fitted, I prefer to pair with a loose top, tucked into the jeans. Easy way to dress up a pair of jeans. Add bold accessories and you’re good to go!
Shoes: I’m partial to my Cole Haan black suede booties. Shortest of all my heels, at 3 inches, I’ve survived two New York Fashion Weeks in them so far. The heel height is perfect for walking long distances. I’m quite petite (5’2) therefore love a good heel to elongate my legs. This look, however, would be perfect paired with leopard loafers, basic flats, or knee-high boots (again, the versatile beauty of skinny jeans!)
Accessories: I am forever loyal to my Marc Jacobs Stam (3 years and still going strong!) Quilted leather, chain-link straps, and kiss-lock topper make this an ideal bag for weekend runs around the city.
