If there's anyone who's going to take a basic outfit formula and make it feel way more exciting than you thought it ever could be, let it be a model off duty. This time around, Emily Ratajkowski is switching up your sweater-and-jeans game and making the combination feel anything but boring. Here's how she did it when she wore the look out in Los Angeles recently.
First, she started with a sleek black Isabel Marant sweater and a pair of vintage-looking high-waisted jeans, providing a flattering silhouette as the outfit's foundation. Next, she smartly cuffed her denim to show off a pair of patent leather Gianvito Rossi boots. Those statement boots are her first go-to trick—she wears them to dress up basic ensembles all the time (see the proof here and here). Finally, she topped it all off with a double-buckle Western belt, Pop & Suki's mini crossbody bag, and dangly silver earrings. As you can see, taking this formula to the next level was all in the shoes and accessories.
