How do you turn a simple outfit into something extraordinary? It’s all in the details. We love basics with a twist - the white button down with tuxedo pleats, the coat with oversized buttons, the pants adorned with an oversized bow. The beauty of these pieces is that they’re simple and understated - yet they pack a fashion punch, especially when combined. Here’s how to get a stunning look from these basics with a twist:
1. Start with a tuxedo pleated white button down shirt. Pair the tuxedo shirt with a pair of drapey trousers adorned with a bow.
2. Layer on a vest. We love that the black sweatervest features a variety of textures - from the simple knit to the lace detailing.
3. On top, pull on an Audrey Hepburn-esque 3/4 length coat. We love the scalloped detailing and the oversized, contrast buttons.
4. Finish off the look with a pair of ankle boots, adorned with zig zag detailing and a buckle at the ankle.
