Being the fierce boss women that I know we all are, sometimes it can feel like we are constantly in our closets picking out something to wear. It can be exhausting putting together outfits appropriate for meetings, classes, dates, friend dinners, and going out, all the while making sure they are fabulous and true to your style!
Sure, the answer is always layering. Whether it’s a sweater, cardigan, or jean jacket, removing this added layer seems to never leave me satisfied. It’s the same outfit, except now I’m cold. Fortunately, this Fashionista seems to have finally cracked the code on day-to-night versatility: keep the layers and mix the textures.
Less is more when mixing textures. Playing with complementing neutrals often help make the look pretty and effortless. Keep the bottom simple! My black jeans are my go-to as they’re chic, but not overdoing it. If you feel like getting out of your comfort zone, try leather or neutral corduroy pants for even more understated texture. It is hard not to acknowledge that over-the-knee boots are taking over college campuses as the shoe to have this season. A classic black boot in this style elongates your legs for a flattering look and are perfect for day or night. During the day, cozy up with an adorable chunky shawl or a bulky sweater. Underneath, add the surprise texture. This Fashionista chose a great satin blouse that created a cool contrast. Try mixing leather and fringe or wool and pleats, and have fun with it! For your night on the town, take off the layer and reveal the sassy surprise!
