quotes

plainness

“there was a consequential good taste in the plainness of her clothes, the blues and grays and lack of luster that made her, herself, shine so.”
– “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” Truman Capote

The most chic of women so rarely call extraneous attention to themselves by overdoing things. Instead, the silent siren of good fit and lasting quality calls our attention to their own beauty instead of the distraction of clothes.
