Sometimes all you need is one key piece to finish your look. Even the best dressed fashion babes have days where you just want to throw something basic on and go. When my schedule gets so hectic I can barely think, I go to a basic formula for dressing. Jeans, leather pants or culottes on bottom, simple sweater or t-shirt or top, then throw on a standout piece. It could be shoes, a ton of eye-catching jewelry, or a jacket to top off the look.
Plus it's just as cool from the back as it is from the front! This item is part of Rachel Roy's limited edition Graffiti Collection available at Macys. Rachel collaborated with George "SEN-One" Morillo, one of the most revered artists in graffiti history. The collection is inspired by NYC's graffiti scene in the 80's, and the current athleisure trend that is still going strong. You may remember Rachel Roy's unfortunate Instagram post that ended in a flood of "Becky" allegations. However she was first and foremost a fashion designer, and this piece is a nice, edgy departure from her usually restrained, classic items.
There really are dozens of ways to wear this baby! Today I'm rocking it with jeans, a cashmere sweater and booties. But it would be great on top of a feminine dress for some contrast, with leggings running errands, or even thrown on top of your gym clothes on the way to a workout. Just try to avoid the temptation to pair it with the matching leggings, because that would be entirely toooooo much!
