Effortless to me is when I can just throw a few pieces on with not much thought and it all just works. Striped pants, black tank with some lace detail, and a green tapestry textured jacket. Appropriate for work, school, date, whatever. Details like a faux animal print bag and bows on your heels make the basics more fun. Like I always say, "basics, but never basic!".

Tank - Salvation Army
Pants - Salvation Army
Jacket - Volunteers of America
Heels - Nine West
Purse - Goodwill
Necklaces - Bauble Bar & Nordstrom
