Leather + Laced

Happy Thursday, everyone! Thank God the weekend is almost here. I've been sick as a dog and trying to get through classes and work and shoots and travel preparations when all I want to do is curl up in a little ball and watch How To Get Away With Murder for the 8th time this year. It's going to be a dull few days, but I'm not complaining after the wild time we had last weekend (honestly I think I'm still recovering). I hope you all get a little bit of time to do what you love with the people you love this weekend! Cheers!!  

So let's talk about the basics of fashion. My job as a wardrobe stylist and fashion blogger is to help show you guys tips and tricks to making fashion and style a little bit easier. So what are a few items every woman needs in her closet to consider herself an everyday icon of style? One of the most important (especially in the winter, fall, and early spring seasons) is the jacket. You can take any outfit up a notch with the right coat.

Today I've styled what would otherwise be an all black basic outfit (helloooooo leather pants, I'm living in you right now!) with a camel TopShop double breasted jacket (find similar here). I paired the basic turtle neck, Blank NYC leather pant, and jacket combo with a pair of Nike Dunk Sky Hi's to keep the outfit feeling fresh. It was important for me to balance the structure of the turtleneck and suit coat by adding an urban edge with the leather pants and Nike sneakers.  

Like I've said before, fashion is all about balance. Don't be afraid to mix your blazers with your sneakers! Have some fun with your clothing and re-fall in love with your wardrobe. It's amazing how many spectacular outfit options you have waiting for you in the closet of clothes you already own.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone! All the best,
