Our ultimate rule in assembling a Perfect Outfit is all about relying on some special pieces that you wear all the time (like a favorite bag, or a sturdy pair of boots), and gussying it up with trendier pieces that you can get on the cheap. Take a cue from Adriana's NYFW outfit where she took Alexander Wang's massively popular Rocco Duffel Bag and paired it with more affordable cropped pants from L.A.M.B. Throw on a structured blazer or an interesting jacket, pile on the accessories, and get ready to be street style snapped. Want some extra dough to get you on the right track?
