Although summer is the season of bright, bold and funky colors like coral and fuchsia, I decided to stray a bit from my floral tops and go back to my safe zone of black, white and grey. Those three are my favorite neutral colors, because they can be combined with any other color and you can always dress them up or down. I love the urban vibe of a minimalistic look; its clean, simple cuts are aesthetically pleasing to my eye.
I love this grey top I got from ZARA last summer; grey is my favorite color all year round and I believe that a closet, in order to be complete, should have at least one simple top in those three basic colors. I matched to a pair of skinny, cropped black pants; another basic piece for any wardrobe. This specific pair from ASOS is pure perfection as it is made from a soft, light, stretchy material and can be worn through all seasons. For shoes, I picked my favorite ADIDAS Superstars in white, because they are extremely comfortable and add a more casual touch to the whole look. For me, the highlight of the whole outfit is my little backpack. How adorable is it right? It is brand new from ZARA and I am absolutely in love with it already. Its spacious interior makes up for its small size. It can fit everything my MK Jet Set Travel bag can (my review), and then some. It has a lovely design and can be worn day or night. What I love the most about it is the golden chain strap that comes with it, so you can wear it as a shoulder bag instead of a backpack. I am telling you this bag is a staple piece of a wardrobe. Especially now that petite bags are a huge trend (see Chiara Ferragni). Although I love bold colors and prints for my summer outfits, I love knowing I can always go back to my basics and create the perfect minimal look. Who doesn’t like a few staple causal pieces that just ooze comfort and style?
