10 Rules for Effortless, Everyday Style

In this series, I share some simple tips for leveling up your daily looks.

Experiment with Layers — Layering isn’t just practical for changing weather; it’s also an easy way to style the basics and add interest to simple pieces. An open button up shirt over a tank, or an oversized coat over a simple base tee and jeans can make a big impact and also add more wears to your clothing throughout the seasons.

And don’t underestimate the power of a well-chosen belt, which is a bit of a stretch when it comes to “layering” but since it quite literally is layered over your waistband I’m going to allow it. I don’t always wear a belt, but sometimes when my outfit is feeling a little boring, I add one and it makes it all come together beautifully.

If you're into minimalist style, shopping quality over quantity, things I find funny + probably way too many videos of my coffee and my Great Dane Hank... You've come to the right place.
