I will be the first to admit that I'm a creature of habit - a lot of the pairings I wear day to day (particularly in winter) are just different variations of the same theme. Button-down shirt + sweater + skirt or pants. Even though there is nothing ground-breaking about this combination, depending on the pieces I choose, the finished looks can be very diverse (edgy, sophisticated or preppy). So the next time you're standing in front of your closet & unsure of what to wear, try your own adaptation of these layered basics...it works every time!
