Murph11's recent thread on that stunning TT coat got me pondering. I love maximal looks when it comes to color, pattern and texture. But here's my issue - I'm not good at or into complex layering or piling on of jewelry. More than one full layer on my upper body almost sends me into panic mode due to feeling constricted and lumpy. It's not that I prefer minimalist looks, but they are just so much easier for me.

With that in mind, I'm thinking that I need to be on the lookout for pieces that incorporate maximal looks and give me the most bang for my buck in themselves. This has always been my way of doing statement looks anyhow, but do you think it makes sense? And what kinds of pieces do you see out there in retail world that would work?
