Dressing for simplicity and comfort

Denim may be the most popular fabric in the world but there is nothing simple about it. Once you've paid a premium for a flattering cut that has been individually hand bleached, frayed, distressed, battered against rocks and washed in the waters of a mystical river, you then have to figure out what to wear it with. Even the almighty Zorro can fall prey to the dangers of double denim (and an unfortunate Caesar haircut) from time to time.

Increasingly, women are opting for a simpler, cleaner look that minimises early morning wardrobe angst (I have nothing to wear! I look terrible! Life sucks! I want to die! Now!).

It makes sense when you think about it, because after spending all that money on lingerie, it seems silly to have cover up for the sake of propriety. Just add a pair of tall pointy boots to remind yourself what season it is.

With a slight modification and a plethora of accessories, it also makes for a camera-friendly red carpet outfit.

The simplicity of this look means that you can devote more time to squeezing into those tight jeans. What I like about tight jeans (especially the ones that are painted on) is that they allow total freedom of movement should you ever need to spread your legs in a work or social context.

I look forward to seeing you and your cleavage on my daily commute.

Is it appropriate to wear a fake fur top on cold winter nights?

I think you can get away with a faux fur bra-top should the weather become chilly. Wouldn't want to poke anybody's eyes out.
