Leather Versatility

No matter the season, my love for leather never really stops. This leather skater skirt consistently ends up in my outfit whether it’s paired with a tank or sweater. In a previous post, I styled it with a cashmere crop top, long sweater and knee high leather boots. I decided to stick with a similar theme and style it with another sweater crop top, except this one is much more lightweight. I also added a layering item like in the last outfit as well. The vest is a cream leather with gold hardware making it much more appropriate for summer. Leather ends up being more versatile than meets the eye with a little creativity.

The Oversized Shift Dress

Oversized shift dresses may be one of the biggest blessings this season. They’re perfect for giving off the impression you tried hard enough to wear a dress, but wanted to be comfortable in soft, loose fabric. Another great asset about them is how simple they are. This makes them perfect to style and add your own creative touch to the outfit. Try styling it with a vest, chunky jewelry, booties, etc. to translate throughout the different seasons.

Country to City Chic

From capes to ponchos, the oversized sweaters have been making a huge come back. They’re a fun way to change up the silhouettes in your wardrobe. To make it even better, they’re unbelievably comfortable! A/W 2014/15 has taken much influence from western pioneer culture and given it an updated, modern twist. My style is far from country chic, but I’ve incorporated the silhouette and wore it in a way that’s consistent with my sense of style. I paired it with form fitting black pants and knee high leather boots for a more sleek, urban vibe.

Statement Sweater

Out of all my thrifting trips, this sweater has been one of my favorite finds. I picked up this Rehab sweater for $18, originally priced around $70. It’s truly a unique garment, which has been fun to incorporate into my wardrobe. The sweater is definitely an eye catching statement piece but extremely comfortable. I can easy pair it with simple leggings and leather boots to create a well put together outfit. Add some red lipstick and the look is complete.

Black on Black

I bought this sweater dress years ago, and it’s remained a staple in my fall/winter wardrobe ever since. It’s absolutely perfect, because it’s so versatile. I’ve worn it just about every way possible over the years. It’s been styled over a body con dress and worn as a vest to a simple sweater with leggings and riding boots. This look is definitely one of my favorite ways to style my sweater dress. I love wearing tights with details, because it’s a unique way to break up a solid colored outfit or mix and match patterns. I’m always a huge fan of the all black look, but the gold jewelry and belt coordinated with the lace patterned leggings is a fun way to make all black a bit more exciting.
