I don’t know about you, but I find that fashion is evolving and reinventing itself faster than ever these days… mostly due to social media and the ever-present pressure to keep up with what’s “in”. The manner in which we choose to share our lives with the world has evolved from sporadic Myspace messages, to daily Facebook updates, to hourly Instagram live feeds, to 24/7 Snapchat stories — how on earth do we even keep up anymore?
Unplugging and taking some time off, away from all the noise sounds like a dream… but for those of us who can barely afford enough time to do even that, deferring to a “this-goes-with-everything” classic is a great reminder of just how good getting back to basics can be (and just how much you actually DON’T need that crazy pair of shoes you saw on your favorite pop star).
Inspired by the timeless and classic spirit of Yves Saint Laurent and the Saint Laurent Fashion House, the iconic smoking jacket has been a staple that has transcended time, trends and even gender. Take a page out of Angelina Jolie‘s book — sometimes picking the most basic option is anything but basic. Fashion fades; style is eternal… now where have we heard that before? ;)
