Less Is More...

As fun as it can be to layer and accessorize outfits, sometimes less can truly be more.  In early fall, we still have the luxury of spending some time outdoors in single layers.  A light sweater, chinos, and sneakers thrown together the right way can be a simplistic look but also a bold fashion statement that goes against the fall grain.  Just as much style can be found in what you pull on as in what you leave out.  Not all omission is negative.  Some crisp, cool evenings require a little less effort in the pieces of your look and a little more enjoyment of your night.
