Understated

Lately I've been observing girls on the web and on the street who have an understated yet sharp sense of style. They don't rely upon bold prints, creative layering, edgy silhouettes, or unique use of color or proportion. Instead they utilize simple basics such as tanks, blazers, jeans, and leggings, and then they add accessories to lend their looks their own personal flair. Their style isn't one which says "look at me", but one which says "I've got understated elegance." Some might argue that their style is boring. I say to each their own. Everybody has their own eye for style, or (as I like to say) "fashion eye." Sometimes the most basic ensembles look effortless, and that's just the type of look that has versatility and transends the ever-changing cycle of fashion trends. My tuxedo blazer and jeans combination pictured below pays tribute to those ladies who inspire me with their understated sense of style.
