simple but significant


Make it simple but significant. – Don Draper

For all my scoffing at the whole capsule wardrobe talk, I obviously have my own signature style. I was compiling this set as inspiration for the upcoming season, but I realized almost immediately that, 1. my wardrobe already consists of items like the ones pictured and 2. if I’d created this set years ago, it would look basically the same.

I stick pretty closely to a uniform of printed vintage skirts, knit tops, and striped dresses. The waistlines and lengths have ebbed and flowed over the years, but I’ve always been drawn to simple silhouettes with unexpected details in the patterns, cuts, and seaming. It’s nice to see that consistency and to be reminded that my natural preferences do create a recognizable look – no need to seek out flash trends.
