Elements of Lauren’s Outfit
1. Sweater + Cardigan + Scarf
This cream sweater by American Rag is great for layering because it’s not too thick to put under another piece. The green and black diamond-patterned cardigan adds a subtle color and pattern, but keeps Lauren's look cozy and casual.
2. Distressed Jeans
Denim is the right choice to go with this outfit. Lauren chose to wear her staple Levi’s. Lauren is a true DIY-er; she distressed them herself!
3. Black Buckled Booties
These black heeled booties give a bit of edge to Lauren's otherwise bohemian outfit. The suede and strappy buckles toughen up the glam silhouette of these everyday shoes.
4. Black & White Scarf + Jewelry
Lauren’s black and white striped scarf from American Eagle puts the finishing touch on this outfit. Her mixed metal rings give a polished look to her whole ensemble.
