Sometimes the best way to dress is the simplest. Perhaps because of all the street style blogs and trends seen on the runway, style had become a matter of who could wear the most extravagant pieces. For some, this is just their style and that’s great, but other people dress this way only to stand out and be the centre of attention.

We often forget that less is more and simple dressing can be as stylish as dressing overly extravagant. You can choose the simplest pieces in your closet; all you have to do is pair them with the right accessories to avoid appearing boring.
