I'm Not Boring, But Simple Outfits Excite Me—These 7 Looks Are Very Chic

Let me start this by saying that I’m not a boring person. Well, I don’t think I am. That said, in the fashion realm, it’s the more pared-down outfits that excite me most. Given that I live in basics in my day-to-day life (aside from more statement-making accessories from time to time), I just gravitate toward simple looks made up of elevated yet easy pieces.

So naturally, when I scroll through Instagram and find one of the said low-key ensembles, I add it to my Saved folder to reference later. Today, I thought I’d share with you some of the outfits I’m feeling. As a preview, each outfit is deemed simple because it’s made up of just a few pieces, and these items are forward and impossibly chic. 

Keep scrolling to check out the simple outfits that recently piqued my interest.
