My get dressed quick, run out the door look is usually a pair of straight leg jeans and a sweater. It’s also the base for other thought through looks, with the only major difference being the shoes and bag I choose to wear that day. I feel comfortable in these understated pieces. They are simple, timeless and chic.
Since it’s a look I frequent so often, I like to have several options with the wash and hem of the jeans. My current rotation includes a lot of Current Elliott, Mother and AG from an ink dark rinse to faded blue. I also stock up on sweaters from Theory, Vince and Helmut Lang, since they are nondescript, well made and a fair price point. With these two pieces I can go from boots to sling-backs without missing a beat.
