When it comes to style we often opt to keep it simple. Don’t confuse the word simple for boring though, we’re suckers for small details that can transform an entire outfit. Sometimes that looks like layers of delicate jewelry, a statement bag, or a strategically placed texture or embellishment. We are always inspired by trendsetters that can take a classic ensemble and elevate it with their own personal touches. Our latest Chic of the Week is no exception! Keep scrolling to see why we’re smitten with this outfit…

Congrats to our latest Chic, Sara!

Cropped denim and a chambray shirt

The chicest cropped denim, and cozy layered top

We’re no strangers to the wonders of a classic chambray button-up, and this look has us inspired to layer it up! We love how Sara bundled up with a chunky cardigan over her favorite denim shirt. While it may look like she’s donning a cute pair of black jeans, we encourage you to look a little bit closer. We love the frayed hem at the bottom of her cropped pants! This makes them the perfect pants to wear with leather ankle booties. Top it all off with a patterned clutch, and you’ve officially transformed a seemingly simple outfit into something a little more interesting. Here’s what Sara had to say about her cozy look…

While I love splurging on the occasional statement piece, the majority of my wardrobe is made up of basics—especially denim! I love the denim on denim trend for its versatility but instead of the classic “Canadian tuxedo,” I opted for something a little more chic for the holiday season with dark wash denim. I’ve been living in these black cropped jeans because of their ultra-flattering high waist style and paired them with a light blue button up for a cool contrasting combo.

Since Los Angeles is still relatively warm this time of year, I opted for this short sleeve chunky knit. And for a bit of glam, I went with this cute embroidered clutch. It’s big enough for all of my essentials (keys, wallet, phone, and lip gloss) and always gets me tons of compliments whenever I wear it!

Thanks for sharing your adorable outfit with us Sara!
