Black & white. Sporty & luxe. Sequins & …minimalism?
Today’s look is all about embracing opposites to add interest to the most basic wardrobe staples. I thought I would be bored of my basics this far into my capsule wardrobe experiment, but the truth is that I’m still coming up with new outfits! Here’s how to take your capsule wardrobe from minimal to holiday ready:
Neutral top + bottom + ankle boot + statement jacket + statement bag …Really, that’s it. The result is a warm, practical & daywear friendly festive look. Or just wear your work blazer during the day & swap it out for a funkier jacket for cocktails.
I’m SO in love with the contrasting vibes between the dressy shine of the jacket and the athleisure vibes of my new Radley London backpack! Wearing a backpack instead of the typical clutch is an unexpected choice which feels modern & fresh.
I need to gush about the backpack a little more because it’s perfect beyond words (mine is the Northcote Road style). The leather and construction on this little baby is beyond luxurious, and the gorgeous box it arrived in is the stuff Christmas dreams are made of <3
Even if you aren’t on the hunt for the perfect minimal backpack, Radley London has a big variety of styles & colors to suit any personal style (a few of my other favorites here (on sale!!) & here).. They have easy to shop Christmas gift guides & free US shipping & returns.
PS Don’t miss this video full of adorable dogs, I already made all my friends watch it 🙂

I was lucky enough to receive this backpack c/o Radley London as part of their Christmas campaign but all opinions are my own 🙂
