My Favorite Spring Outfits Will Be Composed of These Simple Items

After taking a quick inventory of my style choices recently, I realized that my best outfits are always my simplest. Why? I’m most confident when I’m in something minimal, timeless, and wearable. This spring, I’m all about harnessing this energy, which means I’m focusing on neutral color palettes, easy silhouettes, and classic pieces, like an oversize button-up or an eggshell-hued ribbed cardigan

As for outfit inspo? Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy and ’90s Helmut Lang are perennial favorites. Hey, even Coco Chanel said, “Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.” So heed her advice, and check out my 29 chic picks below.
