I will be the first to admit that I am a creature of habit – a lot of the pairings I wear day to day (particularly in winter) are just different variations of the same theme. Button-down shirt + sweater + skirt or pants. Even though there is nothing ground-breaking about this combination, depending on the pieces I choose, the finished looks can be very diverse (casual or sophisticated). In this look, the bow-tie adds more character to this preppy look, than the usual collar neck. So the next time you are standing in front of your closet and are unsure of what to wear, try your own adaptation of these layered basics…it works every time!
I am already in the mood for spring-like weather. So today with the almost 40 degree weather, I had to dress the way I felt. This look is very fun. This luxe vegan leather skirt can chicify any wardrobe. I adore it best paired with bright colors and statement jewelry.
Don’t limit your skirts to warm weather, pair them with tights and leggings for a twirl-worthy outfit even in the winter months. Add a pair of cute booties to the look and you are stylishly ready to take on the still-chilly-almost-spring-like day.
Today I chose to focus on leather. I paired a leather skater skirt with a white button down and some neutral accessories. I added the leopard print wedges to the look, after all as the talented Jenna Lyons says ‘As far as I am concerned leopard is a neutral‘.
In my opinion, everyone should have a little leather in their wardrobe for the season – it adds just the right amount of edge to classic pieces such as my simple white shirt and instantly makes any outfit cooler. I love the vegan styles because they are more affordable options and don’t have the overtly tough feel.
