Making A Statement With Simplicity
Architectural sleeves, artful pleating and a brilliant blue – this gem from Jil Sander is a lot more than it seems. In collaboration with Matchesfashion.com.| April 13, 2017
Those of you who have followed me for a while would know that when it comes to my personal style, I love minimalism best. I’ve never shied away from playing around with prints and embellishments, but my heart still belongs to pieces with clean lines and shapes. Minimalism with a twist is something that I love in wardrobe and this pleated Jil Sander gem – available at Matchesfashion.com here, also in white and beige here and here – captures that aesthetic exactly.
It doesn’t have any obvious details, just skinny pleats and voluminous sleeves. Yet, it managed to get quite a few stares when we took this around town. It’s a statement piece for sure, but still very simple at its core. The blouse is versatile, too, but you know me, I can’t help falling back to my routine of jeans and sneakers.
The weekend isn’t here yet, but we see no reason not to begin the celebrations and self-pampering just a little bit earlier.
