If you’re looking to add a quick, modern edge to any outfit, distressing is the way to go. Nothing says effortless like a few well-placed rips on a casual day. Both the jeans and sweater in this outfit embraced this, making the combo a personification of the idea. A crisp, collard button up layered under the sweater contrasted and balanced out the edgy vibe of the distressing through the look. Nude heels added a continued prep vibe, although the silver details on the halo ankle strap showed hardness as well. I’ve always been a huge fan of mixing divergent styles together. Laid-back cool blends seamlessly with a preppy feel in this outfit, making it forward and contemporary.
