downtown chic

by haley sherif

I love a downtown chic look. I haven’t worn a very downtown look in Boston yet, but on Tuesday I decided to wear exactly that. I wasn’t in the denim mood or the cord mood so I decided on a simple black maxi dress from Calypso I purchased earlier in the summer.

Calypso dress

I knew that the dress could easily be worn in the fall with the addition of some extra layers and a great pair of boots. So I layered the dress with a cool and chic oversized striped Vince knit. I added Isabel Marant black leather boots, a Jerome Dreyfuss cross body, and Oliver Peoples to complete the look. Every one loved the look and though I didn’t think much of it at first, just threw it on, those seem to be the best looks, the ones we never put too much thought into. I can’t wait to wear the downtown chic look again.
