STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Red Leather, Yellow Leather

Style Advice of the Week

There’s something about vintage that just can’t be beat. When you see something old fashioned at that amazing little second hand store, your wardrobe all of a sudden can’t live without it. This year has been such a crazy flashback to the ’60s and what better to get that vintage masculine look than a worn leather briefcase? This Fashionista knows how to carry books in style, and her satchel is a must-have for every secretly fashionable library-goer.

This Fashionista’s bag is actually a handmade piece from Spain, but there are so many ways to get this look both easily and affordably. Leather is timeless and the worn, distressed quality that this bag has is definitely working for her look. A leather briefcase like this will last a lifetime and will take all of your outfits to a whole new level of smart-casual. The slightly orange undertones of the leather paired with the big gold buckles make for a classy, “get down to business” feel. For a slightly more feminine take on the man bag style, try this Tommy Bahama case. The extra outer pockets give it a little more shape, and tons extra room for all your lip glosses. A bag like this will look great with every winter outfit and it’s perfectly appropriate for any and all school-related activities.

Around this time of year it generally feels like we all live in the North Pole. So when one warm day comes along, Fashionistas everywhere pull out their shorts and tights. This fashion maven’s simple black shorts look adorable paired with sheer stockings and little red leather booties. If it’s warm enough, a look like this is a cute and chic winter option that will bring a little playful dressiness to your average library day. Try out these BCBGMAXAZRIA high-waisted black shorts for a bolder statement. They have a slight A-line shape that is not only super flattering, it will also go wonderfully with almost any blouse.

When the sun finally comes out, ditching the snow boots and getting creative is a fun way to start the day. This Fashionista’s little lace-up burgundy leather boots are an awesome choice. It’s never a bad idea to use your footwear to get just a little pop of color into your outfit. Try out these little red boots to give your winter day some vibrant vibes.

So take advantage of this mild weather, fashion lovers! Now is the perfect time to hit up your favourite thrift stores and take your look back a few decades because vintage never goes out of style.
