This photo is a classic example of why accessories matter. A black coat and leather pants are chic on their own, but with a pair of standout shoes and a colored bag create an outfit I know I’d look at twice. It would be so easy to just grab a pair of black boots and one of my many black bags, but choosing tan is so much more interesting and modern. Plus, the boots have the seamed moto-detailing that make them current and my favorite for the season*. A close to the neck, knotted scarf is how I’m wearing my scarves lately and it’s another element that’s easy to incorporate into any outfit which brings a simple look up to speed.
