It seems like we are in the 10th month of winter here in NYC.   I am so over the cold temps, but unfortunately we have a few more months to go.   At this point I feel like I have worn almost every possible outfit combination for this weather, but one of my consistent go-to looks is a cozy turtleneck sweater and my Zara military style jacket.  I love the polished and masculine fit of this coat.  It adds such a cool look to almost any outfit.  The fit also allows you to layer underneath without looking to bulky.  This jacket was a purchase I made a few years ago but it is a style that Zara always repeats.  To amp up the edge, layer a moto jacket underneath and wear the coat over your shoulders.  To shop this look, click the links above and below.

The holiday season is officially upon us and that means lots of parties and family gatherings to attend.  I have a few go-to holiday outfit combinations that work in pretty much any setting.  A nice pair of velvet pants paired with a blouse or a cami and blazer is a great and easy way to dress for your special holiday occasions.   I also really like anything sheer or sequined for the holidays.  This sheer star print H&M blouse is a super chic and affordable top that is perfect for a holiday party!  Whether it is drinks with friends or a NYE party, this top can be worn with so many different outfit combinations.  Today I paired it with my favorite J Brand velvet pants for a chic black on black look.  If you wanted a dressier look I could easily swap out the pants for a leather pencil skirt or sequined bottoms.  If you need help finding the perfect outfit for your upcoming holiday parties, let me style you!

One of my favorite pieces I own is my military  jacket.  I bought this jacket years ago and it still remains one of my fall staples.  I am all about accessible clothing and investing in pieces that are going to last a long time and can be mixed and matched every season with new pieces.  Today I am pairing it with this vintage inspired Anine Bing t-shirt and my go-to J Brand skinny jeans.   I am a sucker for a good t-shirt and love it when the fall season comes along so I can layer them under all of my cool jackets.  This jacket adds a great edgy vibe and the stiletto boots dress the outfit up.  These boots were another investment piece I bought about two years ago.  Every season I do a closet edit and challenge myself to create new pairings with these investment pieces to maximize my cost per wear.  To shop this look, click the links above or below.

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
