‘Tis the season for holiday parties! For my Weekend Going Out Look, I wanted to do something that was appropriate for holiday parties, but wasn’t going to be the same as what everyone was wearing.
I chose these Helmut Lang Leather leggings because leather adds a dressier element and is a great base. I paired them with this velvet smoking blazer from H&M because I love how luxurious velvet is and it seems so perfect for the holidays. I layered the blazer over this green silk cami from Tibi as I love the green color. I finished with these black and sheer pumps from Blonda Castana, mulit-colored chandelier earrings from Banana Republic, and this gold Kotur Pearce clutch.
For this weeks weekend going out look, I wanted to style something quite festive and perfect for New Years Eve. I chose these Frankie B. My BFF Leggings in Black & Gold Stripes as they look amazing! I was instantly drawn to the black with the gold foiling, it’s so pretty!
I paired the jeans with a La Garconne cream sweater and a Topshop black sleeveless jacket. This look would look equally as good with a black blazer, but I use them a lot in my outfits, so I wanted to vary it a bit. I chose the Christian Louboutin Pigalle heels in black to smarten things up and then opted for gold jewellery to tie in with the jeans. I chose a 7 For All Mankind Gorjana Aurora necklace, a Janis Savitt Ring, a Lord & Taylor gold watch and a Kate Spade gold bangle.
The Amanda jean from DL1961 is such a versatile cut, it can be worn with pretty much anything. DL1961 asked me to style 3 different washes in the Amanda in 3 very different ways, to prove how easy they are to wear. The Amanda is a great skinny jean, it has a 31″ inseam, a 8.25″ rise, a leg opening of 11″ and is one of the brands best sellers! It’s similar to the Emma in fit, but it’s skinnier and has a longer inseam. Now onto the styling!
I chose the Pixie in Fashionably Late by MOTHER Denim as my choice to style this week for my ‘Going Out’ look. You may have remembered reading how much of a fan I am of them and I couldn’t think of a better style to choose this week. With the high-rise and slight crop, they were perfect for the slight retro vibe that I was going for.
Being that these are a higher rise, I thought a boxy crop top like this one by Topshop would work really well with them. It has a length that is just cropped enough to skim the waistband of the jeans to show a tad of skin. But as the weather is starting to cool down, I couldn’t not add a sweater. This one by Scotch & Soda has a great fit and texture to it and adds great dimension to the look.
To finish everything off, some cool ankle boots by Toga and a Givenchy bag to add some heavy metal to the outfit. Then just for a little added fun touch, I decided to top everything off with a military hat by Eugenia Kim to add a bit of a quirk to the overall feel of the look. How many of you are excited to don a similar outfit for the weekend?
