It is really easy to get carried away with crazy designs, colors, patterns and materials. This fall, try to step back and simplify your look. Start with the top half of your body. A simple black sweater can go a long way in establishing a good look. It is a functional color that can tie accessories to the rest of an outfit, and can go with just about any pair of pants. It may go without saying for some, but for the rest of us… not everyday has to be an exhibit of jaw-dropping colors. The key part to pulling off a simple black sweater is to accompany it with a nice scarf, or a great pair of jeans. Try this simple sweater or this one in black to keep it casual while still maintaining a classy look. And when it gets chillier, pop your trench over and you’ll look like dynamite.
