One of the main reasons why I love fall so much is because I get to wear my favorite leather moto jacket from All Saints.  I always tell people that this is one investment piece that everyone needs in their closet!  I like to wear mine with everything, but my typical uniform is not surprisingly, jeans and a t-shirt.  Today I added this fisherman hat that I got from Forever21 for an on trend touch.  To make this outfit wearable all day, I added my new classic van sneakers for a comfortable, yet edgy look.  Since a real leather jacket can set you back, I have listed some of my top tips for picking the perfect one for you:

  1. Classic colors like black, brown and navy are great starter pieces because they will go with everything and maximize cost per wear
  2. Leather stretches out and gets broken in over time so size down for the perfect fit as time goes on (keep in mind what you want to wear underneath when making sizing decisions)
  3. The jacket details like hardware, zippers and buckles matter and will make your jacket stand out.  Do some research on which styles fit your overall aesthetic so you will have more options when it comes to wearing it

I love it when a designer creates a basic top with a subtle twist.  This striped button down top from Paige is one of my favorite acquisitions for fall.  The silhouette is a staple, but the small ruffle detail on the shoulder gives it just the right amount of flare to make it a stand out piece.    This top is so versatile and can be worn with anything from jeans to a pencil skirt for an office-ready look.  Today I paired it with my high waisted charcoal DL1961 skinny jeans and denim Tony Bianco pumps.  I recently discovered Tony Bianco shoes and I am such a fan!  They have beautiful shoes at a fraction of the price of high-end designers.  To shop my look, click the links above and below.

One of my favorite outfit combinations is an old school band or concert tee with jeans.   Vintage concert t-shirts have always been a trend and recently artists like Kanye West and Justin Bieber have jumped on the bandwagon by making their concert merchandise more stylized.  My personal favorites are old school bands that conjure up nostalgia.   This Rolling Stones tank top from Daydreamer isn't vintage, but has that worn-in vintage feel that I love.  The classic Stones logo is also one of my favorites for an edgy vibe.  Since it's summer, I styled this with my high-waisted frayed hem 3x1 jeans and Stuart Weitzman rose gold pumps for a dressy touch.  To transition this look into fall, I would add one of my moto jackets for a total rock and roll vibe.  To shop this look, click the links above or below!

There is nothing like a great t-shirt and jeans.  I love finding t-shirts that have a different twist or fit and this gold colored metallic gold shirt from J. Crew is perfect for adding a little shine to your look.  The great part about this tee is that it can be dressed down like I am wearing it today with jeans or you could pair it with a skirt for a dressier look.  I added this panama hat from J. Crew for a summer touch.  It is on major sale right now so snap it up while you can!  My Gucci crossbody bag is a go-to for running around the city and even though it was a major investment piece, I wear it almost every day so it was definetly worth it!
