Leather & Sweater

This scarf I picked up from H&M earlier this Fall, as so many perfect colours in it.  It was the inspiration for this outfit of the day.

They perfectly match deep brown of my hat and the camel suede of these Nine West flats that I found deep within my closet as I’ve been purging.  Speaking of purging… have you visited my TrendTrunk?  Shop my closet friends!!! 😉

Leather pants can be tricky.  There are only a handful of days where the weather is perfect enough to wear leather pants all day comfortably.

You don’t want to end up like Ross from Friends dumping baby powder all over your legs.

I picked up these leather pants many years ago from The Bay.  They were the perfect length for my 5’2 height!

Plus, what’s really great about them is that only the front of the pants are leather, while the rest is fabric.  Making it a very comfortable to wear.

I got this asymmetrical sweater as a birthday prezzy this year.   It has a flattering neckline with faux leather trim (which you can’t see cuz of my scarf).  That’s what made me want to pair it with my leather pants!

 

I know I’ve read many a style article warning against wearing leather on leather looks…

Your leather pants should be the only part of the look that’s this material. Otherwise you’ll look like you’re dressed in a biker chick Halloween costume, or part of a motorcycle gang.

Well, call the style police, cuz I did it!

Turns out my hat and sweater alone weren’t warm enough…soooo I went with function, over fashion I guess… :/

How I Got The Look:  Moto Jacket, Danier Leather; Scarf, H&M; Leather Pants, Edit by Jeannie Beker; Camel flats, NineWest; Angled sweater, Reitmans; Hat, Winners

What do you think of this leather & sweater look?  Was my leather-with-leather a terrible, horrible, ridiculous style choice?

Make ’em Swoon

Whether you need a special dress for a cocktail function, be a fabulous guest at a wedding or just want that va-va-voom dress for a special night,  Kiyonna will have a dress for you.

No matter your shape, the contrasting side lace panels will give you a knockout hourglass silhouette.  The silky stretch fabric on the front of the dress elegantly flatters your curves while the ruching in the mid-section masks any tummy troubles.

It’s a fantastic dress!
