Over the past few years, we have come to a conclusion that to dress boring or normal is "basic". Why do we have to dress for attention, but rather just dress in whatever we feel comfortable with. Dress for yourself not for others. To dress “normal” is the height of chic, yet to call someone “basic” is the chicest put-down, one that shows no signs of disappearing.
Today's style post is very "basic" or I'd like to call it chic. It is an easy look that is easily put together when you are in a hurry or don't have time to put something together but you still want to look effortless. One of my must have essentials in my wardrobe is the basics, which are, clean white shirts, tailored black slacks, an overcoat, and your to-go-to black shoes.
Whenever I am traveling away for the weekend I always pack my basics because it is light packing and can be put together in many ways. They go with any shirts, slacks, and occasions. During the last leg of winter, this grey overcoat is my everyday coat to withstand the chilling wind and cold. The reason why I love this coat is the way it is made. So simple and practically. It has a great shade of grey and really does go with all of my looks (as you can see from my previous style posts). Plus I am a sucker for long coat. But who isn't right? When putting it on you just feel chic.
The last accessory for this look is a nice pair of watch that adds to the outfit and isn't there for display. The Filippo Loreti watch is the watch with a story. It is an unique and personal piece of jewelry that holds valuable memories.
