STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Leather and Cream Combo

Style Advice of the Week

I believe that this season is about expressing the dirty rocker side of yourself… but, of course, not in an extreme way.

We see black leather and spikes in shoes, shorts and accessories in the fashion choices of people with a romantic, preppy and hippie personal style as well. It is wonderful how is not about labels anymore; but about making any type of piece work according to your own style.

Today’s Fashionista shows us how to incorporate a black leather motorcycle jacket in a modern look for a fresh morning. The tiny gold details in her shoulders and the V-neck makes the piece unique. To make it even more special, she pairs it with those aviator sunglasses.

She combines leather with a gray tank top, skinny jeans, a printed scarf and, of course, you got to love the ballerina flats from Tory Burch combined with the Calvin Klein bag.

You can find this type of leather jacket at Tobi with black spikes or something with details in the arms like this one from Urban Outfitters.

You think that’s enough? Well, try adding accessories like a golden Michael Kors watch and a spike bracelet. It is okay to add accessories that embrace the tiny details in the jacket and shoes, just keep in mind to use the same tone and not too much. We don’t want too much arm candy. Keep it simple.

It is not only about the jacket, but you can also try letting the gold and nude colors dominate your look either with accessories or in the clothing. You can get inspired by Dolce&Gabbana’s winter collection.

Find a knock-out leather or gold piece and make it a must-have in your wardrobe. Tory Burch flats are a good investment because they are comfy and sophisticated. As you can see black, cream and gold are colors that together work for the whole day and not just for a night out.
