“Simplicity is the ultimate Sophistication”. When I first heard this phrase a few years ago, it immediately resonated with me for some reason. I couldn’t put a finger on why it did, at the time, but it just did.
Over the years, I have found that my style is ever evolving. I don’t really follow trends, or style rules. However, the one thing I always keep in mind is that simplicity is, truly the ultimate sophistication.
Hence, if I do have an element that is a little over the top, I ensure that the rest of the outfit is simple and understated. This allows that statement piece to stand out and have its moment. The statement piece can be anything, a top, skirt, dress, bag, shoes or like in this case, the jacket.
Although the big ruffled sleeve and the layered texture of the fabric of this jacket make it a statement piece, I have kept the rest of the outfit simple by teaming it with a black cami and skinny black jeans, black sandals and a simple black bag.
What is your favourite, statement piece in your wardrobe?
