Architectural shapes and structured fabrics like wool, leather, and crêpe give way to swirly skirts, slouchy pants, and dresses that skim the body in a stripped-down palette of black and white.
It’s a citified way of dressing that radiates a cool confidence.
HOW TO WORK IT
Resist the urge to inject a predictable pop of color with a bold shoe. Keep the look cohesive with black or nude footwear. Adding accessories would be like clutter-ing up a refined home with tchotchkes. So rely on just one piece (like a structured bag or a basic belt), or skip them altogether. Makeup should be subtle: a strong statement like red lips or smoky eyes would undermine the simplicity of the look.
