For my weekend going out look this week, I wanted to something casual and perfect for running errands and shopping on Saturday or Sunday, in gloomy, wet England. It’s chilly here right now, but it’s not cold enough to warrant layering up on numerous coats, scarves and hats, so my outfit here, centered around the Citizens of Humanity Rocket high rise skinny jeans in Axel reflects that perfectly. I chose these jeans as the black skinny makes a great base and these are incredibly comfortable!
I paired the jeans with the iconic Chloe Susanna boots as these make a statement on their own, while looking chic and stylish. I wanted a bit of Autumnal colouring though so I chose this Hobbs Sara sweater in plum burgundy to spice it up a little and then for warmth, layered on a leather jacket, like this Saint Laurent leather biker jacket. To keep it from looking too dark and black though, I lightened the ensemble up with this Wallis beige tote to add some neutral tones to the mix. This is definitely something I would wear myself if I had the pieces! What do you think of it?
After seeing the new leather and suede styles by AG, I instantly knew I wanted to use them for my ‘3 Ways’ post. Even though AG came out with a pair for men, I decided to choose three pairs from the women and show that they can work in the slimmer man’s closet like mine. See the three looks that I came up with below.
Gray leather is a territory that is rarely touched because just like denim, it is something that needs depth to give off a sense of luxury. The good thing about the Shark wash by AG is that they don’t need much help as it actually elevates looks instead of needing pieces to elevate them. So I wanted to do a look that was mostly monochrome and easy, but not so casual. To help elevate the easy feel, I paired the pants with a pair of boots from Loakes and a jacket from Haider Ackermann. Then I just love the pairing of gray and white together, so as a layering piece underneath, I went for a simple t shirt by Elwood. To finish it off, I chose a beanie from Forever 21 because I think it just somehow pulls the whole look together.
I have been waiting for black suede pants for the longest because there is a sense of luxury to them that is just a step up from black denim, but not as bold as leather. And I love that AG came out with such a classic jean style with this Super Black Suede pair.
As they work just like black jeans, I went for a casual look with them. I paired them with a white longline tee by Stampd and the Adidas Ultra Boosts. To bring in an edge to the look, I decided to go for a longline bomber jacket from Zara. Green, black and white is just a classic pairing and will always look right when they are together. As there is a streetwear thing going on with the look, I decided to finish it with this cap by Gents Co..
I couldn’t do this post without, of course, the Super Black Leather pair. The option in styling is just endless and can be worn in numerous ways. For this look here, I wanted to do something in between the two first ones and somewhat in the vein of Harry Styles. I went for a black longline t shirt by Stampd to be layered under a jacket by Coach. For shoes, I wanted a pair that was casual yet smart and Chelsea boots are perfect for that. These by REPRESENT have an amazing color that contrasts great against the black leather. Then to finish it all off, I chose the same Gents Co. hat as the look above for its simplicity and cool of it.
For my look this week, I chose the Citizens of Humanity Rocket High Rise in Porter. It is one of my favorite styles by the brand in not only the fit, but also the wash. The fatigue of it has this life that just makes them standout from the other distressed styles.
I wanted to go for a layered look (as the cold has definitely hit) and play with contrast a bit with the prim sense of the sweater and accessories against the edgier jeans. To bring that to life, I paired the jeans with a knit sweater by NLST to be layered under a Haider Ackermann jacket. As I had this envision of the proportions exaggerated and the sweater being oversized under the more fitted jacket, I wanted to keep the accessories clean with these Margiela boots and Saint Laurent belt. It is a look that is different from the casual that I go for, but in the time of cold, it is one that works. How many of you are excited to start layering up?
Getting some inspiration from Kate Hudson’s recent look, I decided to style my weekend going out look around these MiH Skinny Marrakesh Flares in velvet. Now that the temperatures are starting to get cooler, it is the perfect time to break out the velvet! I love that the fabric adds a touch of glamour to a more casual outfit. Since these do have a bit of a higher rise, they’re a great length for a cropped sweater, like this fringed one from Rachel Comey. For shoes, I chose to add a bit of sheen with these silver Giuseppe Zanotti oxfords. Lastly, I wanted to add a punch of autumn color with this maroon Sophie Hulme bag and brown Essie Chocolate Cakes nail polish.
