My theory is that colour is for the brighter days and the better moods. This seems like more of an excuse, but I can’t help to gravitate towards a monochrome look – it happens without me noticing. I’m a fan of contrasting colours because I think it’s the easiest way to make a look appear put-together and effortless simultaneously. The R13 Nancy Striped Boy Tee is a perfect example. Stripes are such a simple pattern, but make this shirt seem more complex in contrast to a plain black or white tee. The Black High Waisted Jean Shorts compliment and bring out the black in the t-shirt, but to make this seem brighter, white shorts would work too. The distressed demin and studs expose the stylish design without going over the top.
A Wool Hat is essential for this season, even if shorts aren’t. The 100% wool hat includes a subtle leather band for texture contrast. To finish the look, I included the Dioon Elastic Chelsea Boot available at Office Shoes. The chunky 90’s inspired boot includes a platform for extra high and intensity.
