Here is a new outfit post. Honestly the versatility of this See by Chloe vest is crazy, I love it so much, definitely one of my smartest buys for this season, though I would like to think all my buys are relativity smart.
Anyway as a layering obsessive the whole skirt over trouser thing is definitely up my style street, I remember trying out this combo for the first time last winter after seeing the Celine Fall 2012 looks and have been obsessed with the super chic combo ever since.
With this look I chose to wear my mid length DKNY washed silk, skirt over my Joseph leather leggings, as sometimes with layering pieces such as these and especially so in a darker pallet, it can be more effective to choose different textures. Plus it helps create a certain amount of depth which can be important to remember when layering darker pieces. The skirt doesn't naturally sit this high but I belted it up that high just so it had more of an effect. I stuck with a white shirt for my top and went with an A-line shape, just for something a little different. For something more unexpected I added in a luxe tie and to also compliment the androgynous tone it set I wore this See by chloe vest.
For my shoes I got out these Jeffery Campbell beauties (that I lived in last winter) as their chunkiness gave balance to the a-line shape of the shirt. I can't help but think of school shoes when I look at these, so here's to school girl- chic, that is if there is such thing as school girl-chic?!
Anyway I've tired myself out just writing this, so thanks for hanging on in there. Hope you like this look and as always I super grateful for any comments.
p.s All my love and prayers go to those effected by the superstorm Sandy.
