There is a very fine line between minimalistic style, and a fashion rut.

While I adore my lived in Joe’s Finn frayed hem black denim – when a clean cut pair of black skinnies starts to fray, they get the boot (or get altered).

Make a mental note – a true lived in basic look better with age, not worse. ie. a leather jacket vs. your LBD

As I was getting dressed the other day, I realized that I had literally donated most of my bottoms – and had  created the ultimate capsule collection consisting of  2 pairs of denim, 3 pairs of black pant ranging from distressed to high-waisted and skinny, and an assortment of  summer/ San Diego essentials like a black leather, sequin skirt and a few pairs of denim cutoffs.

What to add? That is when I saw this really cute black midi jumper from StyleWe – I have been wanting to try the midi length, and I love the fact that it is a jumper which adds an unexpected twist to an otherwise plain option.

The little black jumper is a mix between Parisian chic, and American grunge and can be styled with everything from stripes like I am wearing in this post, to a much more irreverent statement T, or crop top.

One of the many things I love about creating a minimalistic wardrobe is how easily outfits come together! If you read my post earlier this month on the essential tops every girl needs this fall you will find that this jumper goes with all of them!

Stay tuned for more minimalistic essentials to add you your wardrobe, and don’t forget to checkout – they have such cool new designers for really affordable prices!
