For my second installment of  the Piperlime Moments of Chic feature, I’m wearing one of my favorite simple go-to outfits. A cotton striped top is definitely an essential in every girl’s closet for many reasons. This type of shirt is flattering on anybody and works really well with pretty much anything when layering. Some of my favorites to layer with include cargo vests, statement necklaces, and textured jackets.

For this look, I wanted to go with a more subdued layering piece that most of us probably have–a neutral scarf. Layering in winter is important and can be tough to do when concerned with colors and prints. I find that it’s always a simple and easy trick to remember that different shades of the same color work well to create a monochromatic look. Gray and black work well to contrast and complement at the same time.

To offset a black/white/gray outfit, I wanted to add some interest with a fun pair of flats. These aztec/captoe flats are the perfect hybrid of punchy and pulled-together. I love the structure of them and how the subtle print pop would work for the office as well as the weekend.
