Balance is as much a necessity to cultivating a beautiful life as it is to creating the perfect outfit. Textures, patterns and colors all have to compliment each other for an assemblage of clothing items to truly become an ensemble. It's during the fall and winter that I can play with more layers, crafting looks that convey both my sophisticated sensibilities and my edgy energy.

I achieved aesthetic balance with this look by combining differing textures all in the same neutral color family, with no singular shade taking precedent over the other. Starting with a Gap heather forest green sweater, I accessorized with a beige baseball hat from OBEY and sleek suede shoes from ASOS. A classic overcoat from Topman was well juxtaposed with my ripped jeans from Pull & Bear. I wanted my otherwise classic ensemble to look a little more casual and gritty with the infusion of streetwear.
Finding the balance between stylish sophistication and urban street credibility can be a testing process, but when you eventually get it just right, the results can be brilliant. Be fearless in your pursuit of fashionable equilibrium.
