Pair a few classic pieces with one bold accessory.
I have always defined my style as “classic with a twist”. I’ve adhered to that motto for most of my conscious life I say most because there were a few iffy years way back when. (It was 2001 and Abercrombie was just “so cool”). I paired a simple navy polo with basic-wash chinos and my Matt Bernson loafers. The pop came from this killer Botkier Eden Satchel in black pony hair. Yes – this bag is hairy and I like it. It’s so luxe and upgrades the outfit from basic to bold. If this bag had been in any color other than black, this outfit wouldn’t have worked and would’ve bombed. However, choosing a neutral accessory that compliments (rather than clashes) with the current color palette makes all the difference.
