Style Advice of the Week

Do you have a favorite coat? Not the practical coat mom buys that she promises looks “so cute” even though you feel like the little brother from the Christmas Story… Do you know what I’m talking about?

No, I mean a favorite coat — the one that makes you feel like a million bucks as you strut down the street in it. Anything is possible when you’re wearing a great coat! That’s why, this week, I was inspired by this Fashionista and her lovely piece of leather. Bomber jackets are the outerwear of the season and our Fashionsta was lucky enough to score this beauty at a local thrift shop for only 10 dollars, though similar ones can be found in online stores such as ASOS. The rust color of this piece stands out on its own but layered with the complementary oranges and blues like our Fashionista has done has taken the look to a whole new level.

Another great element to this outfit that can be easily overlooked are the tights our Fashionista is wearing. Printed tights are a perfect way to add texture to an outfit and pairing them with leg warmers and leather boots is sure to keep you warm.

I think what I admire most about this ensemble is that nearly 100 percent of our Fashionista’s pieces are thrifted. If you read my STYLE GURU BIO a few weeks ago, you’ll know that I am an avid thrift shopper and appreciate when an on-trend outfit can be produced on a budget. Next time you’re feeling the need for a wardrobe update, check your local secondhand shop — you might be able to find some leather layering pieces of your own!
