Proof Is In The Picture: Functional Fashion Can Be Elegant

Frills are fine, but there is something to be said for straight-up functional clothing that's equally lovely. Yes, we're talking utilitarian gear — items you can live in, work in, and wear well as they grow old. Our street-style inspiration, Anna, sets the perfect example on the pavement of Berlin.
Donning a vintage jacket and worn-in satchel, the German gal's look reads as comfortable yet thoughtful. Plus, paired with an on-trend oxblood Muschi Kreuzberg hat, H&M leggings, and Zara flats with the perfect bit of embellishment, this retail saleswoman sells us her not-too-fussy style that's far from bare-bones boring.
