The Must-Haves of Falls

Shearling swept the Fall/Winter 2016 runways in a more than unconventional way… Lucky for us, the Ready to Wear lines have adapted the extravagant furs into a perfectly attainable statement piece. As neutral lover, I can’t help collecting these pieces in blacks and tans, so they’re easy to style with the popular colors of almost any time of year- except maybe not the midst of summer. I paired my thrifted shearling vest with a boat-neck sweater and contrasted those pieces with shorts to show off my other fall must-have item: over the knee boots. These are the ultimate pair of boots for versatility. They can be worn day or night, on a warm fall day or when the air turns cool after nightfall. I finished off the look with gold jewelry and a bold, berry lip.

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.
