I don't think there is a look out there that has better stood the test of time than the simple pairing of a great pair of pants and a sweater. It's the perfect weekend attire and the layers give you the option of wearing the look throughout the transitioning seasons. Simply pop off the sweater as the day warms or throw it back on when the weather gets fickle (as it seems to be doing lately, am I right?). I swear, one day its beautiful and hot and the next it's frigid - what's up with that Mother Earth?

If you're looking for a new take on the old classic, look for not-so-basic basics, like skinny jeans in a different texture, a sweater in a bold weave or punched up boots. Think corduroy or velvet skinnies or a patterned wrap cardigan. It's a great way to shake things up while staying classic.
