Layering is the key to make any outfit look ‘put together’. My fave layering piece is a scarf! I have so many and wear one pretty much everyday (mostly because it’s super cold here in NYC). They are the easiest thing to throw over your outfit and bring some new dimension to it. I love picking a scarf that has some similar colors with the rest of the outfit (like this scarf has grey similar to the jeans) but still contrasts nicely with the green sweater.
I got this scarf at H&M (no longer available), but found a ton of similar styles HERE, HERE, HERE, and HERE. I styled the scarf a few different ways and then added more layering with a light faux leather jacket. This jacket added different textures (a major KEY for layering) and brought the colors together with more green and black.
Keeping the shoes in the same light tones, I went with the Puma platforms (my new fave sneak because they are SO comfy, plus add a little height). I then accessorized with dark, all black, pieces to contrast the rest of the look in order to not wash it out. Keeping it simple and chic with all black sunnies, all black watch (current FAVE), and this carry-everything bag. Depending on the weather, add or take away pieces to ensure you are always comfortable!
