Having an outfit like this in your closet is perfect for traveling, shopping or days when you're just too cold or too tired to care about what you put on. Throw on neutral layers and a large pair of shades and you're good to go.
The key to achieving this look is to use neutral colors to build your layers. Gray, black and nude is a sophisticated palette that works well on top of simple basics like dark-rinse denim and white T-shirts. The key is to have many elements to your outfit that are all working together and not have one piece that stands out among all the rest.
