Slouchy, Pulled-Together Chic

I’m a bit mystified by why I’m so excited about this look. I think it’s because it looks relaxed and effortless, but still tidy. A long tunic over dark wash boot cut jeans and wedge espadrilles is classic. The slightly belled sleeves are a thoughtful touch that sets the laid-back mood. Then the cardigan echoes the flowiness and adds some edgy asymmetry, while keeping the lines clean with its lack of fasteners. Its three-quarter sleeves are a brilliant touch, keeping the look light and sharing the spotlight with the tunic’s sleeves. The thin bright belt reigns in all that volume and the big slouchy bag is clearly the only way to go.
