A Note on Style: Closet Update for 2018

Hello, LDV readers! This is Karima from A Note on Style. Like many, the new year brings a fresh perspective and an opportunity to start with a clean palette in the home, closet and even mentally. I’ve spent the last week editing and reorganizing my closet which has allowed me to see voids to fill and mistakes not to repeat, like buying too much of the same thing. How many black or gray sweaters do I really need?

One thing I’ve decided to focus on is to look at ways to modernize so many of the classics I already own. With a base of black and white, which can go in almost any direction from polished to boho, I love the addition of tan leather, especially in pieces that have a handcrafted, earthy vibe. The color adds a beautiful warmth. The tan accessories I’m falling for this season, a braided leather Loewe necklace, a macrame Staud bag and two-tone Trademark sandals, are unmistakably luxe additions that elevate the simplest outfit.

In addition to a batch of cool new accessories, I am continuing my love for blazers. Fall brought us some great tweeds and plaids, but a crisp stripe looks so right for spring. I’d wear Veronica Beard’s striped twill jacket with everything from straight or wide leg trousers to jeans or even a strapless dress. It’s chic and quite versatile.
