The casual flip of a cuff, peek of a lining, glint of a button, all little details that catch my eye as I flick through street style photos or glance around a coffee shop. I’ve always been drawn to the details of an item or an outfit, and as my closet slowly migrates toward a more monochrome and minimalist aesthetic, those little interesting details are becoming more important to me.
For example, this stripe tee, while seemingly basic at first glance, caught my eye with its “The end.” patch detail. The lettering against the stripes reminds me of lined notebook paper, specifically, marking a story that has yet to be written. I really love this imaginative detail, and it makes a simple stripe tee a much more interesting and dynamic piece of an outfit.
Other details I thought about while putting this outfit together include adding the light grey lapel pin to balance the grey jeans and booties on bottom, and the extension of stripe tee sleeve beyond the rolled blazer cuff. Without these details, I don’t think the outfit would have been all that interesting, but thanks to them I found the outfit quite pleasing to look at.
