I could live out the rest of my days in a uniform of nothing but a great pair of jeans and a quality tee shirt. If I had to sum up my style philosophy, it would be to start with a great base and add on from there.
My eye always goes to add ons. I love the make your own salad spots and self serve frozen yogurt shops that are seemingly ubiquitous in NYC. My bed is a veritable palace of pillows, when in reality, Raven and I only sleep with one respective pillow each. When it comes to my choices in fashion, I am no different. Whether browsing online or shopping in store, I almost always head straight for the add ons. Blazers, cardigans, shoes, scarves, belts, jewelry...you get the idea. It doesn’t matter if my shopping list is one line item only- I will inevitably drift to the add ons.
And why not? One could conceivably wear the exact same base 3 nights in a row, and with a little imagination and the right add ons, have a completely different look every time. Here, I’ll show you below...these are almost identical versions of my outfits for Thursday, Friday and Saturday last weekend (which included 2 birthdays and a fantastic day trip).
red’s tip: my absolute favorite tees are by Alexander Wang. Classic and flattering on anyone, they make for a great base. They aren’t cheap but they definitely last.
