I’ve lately found myself stalking the outfits of an Instagrammer whose style could only be described as boring. But I mean that in the best way possible. Sandra Sauceda (@filis_pina) is an Arizona-based style star whose go-to look is an oversize sweatshirt in tones of camel or heather gray tucked into a pair of high-waisted pleated trousers and finished off with a simple pointy heel or a chunky sneaker. Sometimes she swaps her sweater for a white T-shirt and a boxy blazer, but simplicity is always key with outfits pulled together by this chic mom of two whose style is so good, it almost feels unfair.
But she’s not alone when it comes to the recent trend favoring clean, minimal clothing, all served up in a neutral color palette. Call it boring. Call it simple, but you have to admit that whatever it is, it looks really good (and it makes getting dressed in the morning a million times easier). So here are five ways to nail the “boring” trend without looking like a snooze.
