Not So Basic Basics

Yet another one of those looks inspired by my current obsession with not so basic basics. Currently, I am on a high-waisted cropped raw-edge jeans high, because, well… because they pair beautifully with just about any top style imaginable, and can be dressed up with something like a crop top and blazer, or down with a cute tucked-in lose-fitting tee.

In fact, I am so addicted to this particular jean style at the moment, I’ve been buying them in every color imaginable, but the black pair I am sporting in today's post is definitely my favorite by far. I wore this look to a casual dinner with friends just before I headed to New York Fashion Week. We went to a cute vegan cafe in downtown Los Angeles, so naturally I opted to wear my favorite basics but dressed them up with a few favorite accessories.

First and foremost a pair of red pumps is always at the top of my must-have list. You know me, I love a statement shoe, and I especially enjoy the way a great pair of red heels adds just a touch of color to black and white looks. Normally, I opt for a single red accessory to make it the focal point of the look. Finishing touch - the beret of course! An absolute must-have this year, I think I fell in love with berets when I saw them floating down a runway at Paris Fashion Week, paired with just about everything from evening gowns to everyday looks. Personally, I love the way berets add just a touch of chic sophistication to a look, but also transform even the simplest of outfits into something well thought-out and pulled together! Naturally, I am OBSESSED!
