Three Leather Skirt Outfits To Wear All Weekend

leather1

The key in creating a Capsule Wardrobe is that you can style one item multiple ways and wear it for many occasions like – let’s say – the whole weekend. Combine a leather skirt with a cashmere knit and ankle boots on Casual Friday, with a silk blouse and heels on Saturday Night and with a breton tee and sneakers on Chill Sunday. A vintage leather belt and cool sunnies are the only accessories you’ll need, it’s really that easy being stylish.

Business Or Casual; Two Ways To Wear A Jumpsuit

The jumpsuit may have found it’s way to your Fall 14 Capsule Wardrobe, but styling the casual onesie without looking like a guy working in a garage is tricky.
The always stylish Celine Aagaard is showing you how to wear it; with heels to work on Casual Friday or with Stannies at your day off.

Get a similar look by wearing double denim or an army style shirt and khaki pants. Make sure both top and bottom are the same color and have the same loose fit and complete the outfit with a (D-ring) belt.

Fashion Week Style; What The Editors Wear

carine1

What Suzy Menkes once referred to as the Circus of Fashion is not my definition of a stylish Capsule Wardrobe either. Let’s look beyond the colorful designer label layers, unwalkable shoes or the so called “funny” accessories of the fashion hipsters and be inspired by the opposite of look-at-me fashionwhat the editors wear to Fashion Week.

When it comes to skirts choose either a pencil skirt, like Carine Roitfeld can rock like no other, or a long a-line skirt, worn by Christine Centenera. Wear them with oversized knits or a leopard coat for instant Fall style. Dresses get a Yasmin Sewell makeover when worn in dress-over-pants style with slim fit trousers. Leather is always a good choice, Vogue UK editor Sarah Harris is casual chic in her leather joggers, cashmere knit and amazing grey hair, which proves women can look stylish at any age.

Both Sarah and Barbara Martello are doing a chic twist on the military theme, a grey shirt loosely tucked into mens style pants or a khaki jacket casually wrapped with a D-ring belt. The fringe trend can be tacky when styled wrong, so choose one accessory like the bucket bag from Emmanuelle Alt to update a casual outfit or make a big Ozzie statement with a turtleneck sweater and black basics.

Casual Friday; Patchwork Denim

patchworkstreet

For women over 35, a skinny jeans is most flattering, but we wouldn’t say no to a cool boyfriend jeans on casual days off. So why not make your own patchwork denim as seen at Junya Watanabe? The DIY procedure is simple; take some cool fabrics and old denim and sew them on an old pair of jeans. If you’re not the crafty kind of woman, Isabel Marant Etoile and Hope STHLM also stock cool ones in their Fall 15 collections.
