As I mentioned in this previous post, my style and wardrobe is very basic. I tend to stick to simple and classic pieces that can be mixed and matched as needed; like white tees, jeans, black skirts and dresses, and gray items to layer. Classic patterns, like stripes and dots, and textured knits add a little range, too.
Lately, I've been obsessed with and shopping at Loft, a retail brand that's helped me refine my style. It wasn't a destination store for me before, but recently I just happened to pop in to see what I could find for fall. With the pops of pattern and modern silhouettes, I quickly fell in love with their mix. From a textured coat-igan (picture at the top) paired with knit leggings, a white spotted collar tie top coupled-up with a leather skirt I've had for years, to a striped top over a black dress, I've been able to find items that fit nicely with my existing pieces. Loft is also perfect for petite sizes, which is great since finding the right fit can be a challenge for little ladies like me.
I highly recommend Loft if your style is fairly neutral, graphic, and fresh. If, like me, you prefer for your accessories to make a statement rather than your clothes (like shoes, jewelry, bags, or hair) then this is a brand for you. It's not super girly, edgy, or crazy trendy — although you can find some things that can add to that kind of look.
What about you? Is there a brand you're diggin' right now? One that is usually a win-win when you walk into the store or visit the online shop? Let me know!
