Oh, the weekend; what a glorious phrase. Starting the weekend out fresh with a rocking outfit is a great way to rejuvenate after the long week. Typically the weekend is a bit spontaneous, filled with errands, social outings and hopefully some sleep. Since the weekend can always be a bit unexpected, choosing the correct look can be tricky.
This Fashionista enjoys her weekend in a casual, but chic way. Pairing together different black leather pieces creates an edgy and professional look. Loading on black is always a smart move because it is versatile, classic and sophisticated. This Fashionista chooses a worn-in graphic sweatshirt to contrast the tough leather. Pairing the sporty sweatshirt and trio of leather creates the perfect modern vs. classic look.
When mixing lots of leather, create a look that isn’t harsh with different types of leather. For example, this Fashionista wears edgy skinny leather pants, but carries a soft classic kate spade tote. To finish the nearly all-black ensemble, this Fashionista chooses to rock a flat in a simple shape with a silver pointy toe. This shoe creates the ultimate finishing touch to a classic, but edgy weekend look.
One Simple Change: Take this look to an interview! The classic black tote, leather pants and pointy flats scream professionalism. Swapping the sweatshirt for a fitted blazer and blouse creates the ultimate work-appropriate look. Interviewers will be impressed by the sophistication and notice the unique qualities of the non-traditional black pants and shoes that have some kick.
