We can't take credit for the term "vacation brain." WWD media reporter Amy Wicks coined that herself the day she showed up in our office sporting a rag & bone top-and-pants combo that was simple, yet so spot-on. With elegant accessories, including J.Crew sandals, a Chanel shoulder bag, and a wrapped bracelet made by a friend, Wicks tried to convince us that her effortlessly chic ensemble had a heavy emphasis on effortless.
Fresh off the heels of a Jamaica vacay (Amy, we're jealous), she says she found this ensemble in her closet when she got back home and "it was clean." Make that clean and smart — we already took notes on Wicks' adorably self-tied trousers that make for a very small, yet very impactful, DIY project to give her otherwise-wide-legged pants a completely different look.
