STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Fringin' Around

What could be better than leather and fringe?  I’ll let you in on a little secret: NOTHING! Why separate the two if you can have both wrapped into one amazing piece? One would think that a staple jacket like this would be overtaken by the next trend in today’s dynamic fashion world; however, it can easily become a staple for any outfit and occasion.

The simple trick to pairing tricky materials and textures together in everyday outfits exists in the complement of that item. This means that any time an item that contains already-overwhelming elements needs to be paired with a simple, classic item. Otherwise, the look gets muddled (of course, if that’s your style, more power to you). This doesn’t mean that there’s only one translational style. Whether you prefer the bohemian, classic or eclectic look, there is such a thing as the perfect leather jacket for you!  

This Fashionista paired her statement item with pieces that defined her usual look: edgy and chic. Pairing it with leather leggings brings some rock ‘n’ roll to the look. Chunky boots and a neutral colored shirt brought it all together. It’s crucial that statement pieces, like this fringe leather jacket, are tailored to fit each person’s unique style. The key to any successfully daring ensemble is confidence and personal touches. Any Fashionista/o can shine through when they wear their confidence on their sleeve.
