Keep. It. Simple. Stupid. This acronym applies to so many situations in life. For this instance it applies to dressing. This look resulted from a combination of my lust for a long, white tuxedo vest, and my not knowing exactly what to pair it with. So I turned to my closet staples to guide a simple look away from the bog lands of boring and into the realm of classic.

As you can see, the staples are: a great pair of super skinny jeans, a fitted black tank, great black heels, a black clutch and classic sunnies. Toss literally ANY vest, blazer or jacket over these and you’re set.

Accessories play a big part in de-blahing an outfit. In my opinion (humble or not), a crisp white tux vest is pretty badass so studded bangles and a snakeskin cuff were a must. Angular rings and a classic clutch with gold hardware carried the hard lines through to the details.

When photographer extraordinaire Agata (see her genius here) mentioned a concrete staircase as a location I knew this look was destined for it. We were thrilled to see how the beautiful grey tones and harsh lines in the concrete created a perfect back drop for the crisp whites and contrasting black in the look.
