FALL 10x10 - LOOk 6

the-thoughtful-closet_fall-10x10_challenge_outfit-6_-7.jpg

This is probably my most basic outfit in my 10x10 but there's nothing wrong with basic! It's comfortable and has multiple pieces that I'm obsessed with. I'm also happy to be wearing a beanie! I love my beanies and I get so excited when it gets cold enough to wear them! They're also amazing for bad hair/I haven't washed my hair since I don't know when days ;) 

Style Notes

| FRENCH INSPIRED | to me, this outfit is comprised of all of the components that I would expect to see in a French woman’s closet. A simple turtleneck, chic straight leg jeans, a basic black heel and an urban backpack. I’ve made it slightly my own by adding a beanie (one of my favorite fall accessories) and my go to statement necklace. Overall it’s a pretty basic outfit but sometimes it’s nice to venture back to basics!

| REMOVABLE TURTLENECK | talking about this sweater one more time :) this time it’s a turtleneck! I was hesitant at first with the idea of a removable turtleneck. I thought that the buttons might make it sit weird or that it would be a terrible hassle. The buttons did take a little bit of getting used to when reattaching the turtleneck but really it’s a small price to pay for an item that is as versatile as this one!

| COOL TONES | my 10x10 has definitely been divided into warm and cold looks this go around. I have never really put much thought into warm or cool tones but I’m trying to be more mindful of it in my looks. Especially as I try to nail down my favorite colors for each season! This look is definitely on the cooler side and I love how it contrasts with my red hair! 

| ELEVATING DETAILS | I love focusing on the details of an outfit and how small tweaks can elevate a look. For this look what sets it apart from a basic look in my mind is the beanie, backpack, jean cut & drop shoulder sleeves. Accessories are easier to work with when you want to elevate a look. But when it comes to the actual garments that can be tricky. I find that if I’m looking for a piece that will add a little summin summin to my outfit I start with a basic garment. For example let’s take the jeans in this outfit. I wear/wore skinny jeans all of the time. I also wear crop cuts all of the time so investing in a slim straight leg with a crop was an easy decision for me. It’s just a combination of two things I already love!
