James takes it easy in a casual update of the collegiate look. The centerpiece here is the vintage Brooks Brothers jacket, which can be worn with many things including a button down shirt, and khakis for a more classic take. Here we’ve gone more “skateboard style” with a vintage t-shirt, Zara black denim jeans, EZ Rider blue suede tennis shoes and our models own studded leather belt with wallet chain. The jacket really takes all the elements and pulls them together. That proves my point that all you really need for a great outfit is one spectacular piece to start!

One great piece is sometimes all you need to create multiple stylish looks. Our model Anna is wearing a vintage linen jumpsuit that definitely fits the bill. Not only have jumpsuits made a comeback in fashion, they are also very easy to accessorize, which is what we’ve done here. First we added a necklace for drama, which is actually a belt! Gold and pearl earrings, gold bangle bracelet, and a beaded cocktail ring don’t compete but harmonize with the larger necklace. Anna chose her own metallic silver heels to finish the look.
Next, we brought on more gold accessories, but different shapes, the earrings are rosettes, the belt features circular filigree links, and the necklace has a large rounded filigree pendant.
Lastly, we went more mod, with contrasting white accessories, which included a white Jimmy Choo clutch, white beads, and white and black aviator sunglasses. As you can see, one wardrobe item in a solid color can really take you to new fashion heights, like our model Anna!
