Necessary Basics








Since coming to New York I've definitely undergone a nice style transformation.. nothing major. But I now think I really understand the concept of "effortless chic"and hope to perfect the concept when I move to Paris in a couple of weeks (I know, freakin' out!). Not saying I'm that great at it yet.. but I like the direction my style is heading.

Although there are no rules or guidelines to this concept, the style-ites here in New York live by the motto of looking chic-as-hell and, well, not fussy. There's some pattern mixing, textures, staying in a somewhat neutral (I prefer the word cleansing) color palette.. etc etc. It's all about having fun basic pieces to mix & match with other pieces in your wardrobe.

My Necessary Clothing black deep-V bodysuit is the perfect piece for layering and looks SO chic when worn simply or fun. It's really casual yet elegant- perfect for perfecting this new york style. I mixed it in with some of my other favorite basics and some new walking heels (haha) from Enzo Angiolini and some fun & quirky prints. 

What do you think about this style? I think I'm hooked.
