The Lady in Leather and a Crop Top

Fashion, Luxury, Style

Whoever said you can’t be ladylike while baring a little midriff obviously didn’t try hard enough. This outfit is the perfect balance of classic and modern. The small strip of skin definitely ups the cool factor, but the leather is what really gives this look its edge:

Lady Crop Top

OPENING CEREMONY top / TIBI skirt / JIL SANDER coat / VICTORIA BECKHAM bag / CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN boots / AGENT PROVOCATEUR gloves

The Christian Louboutin boots, Victoria Beckham purse and Agent Provocateur gloves completely modernize the look. The clean lines, rich leather (very trendy right now) and unexpected color palette bring this look to life.

In the winter the leather boots are a necessity to keep bare skin to a minimum, but in the spring they can easily be swapped out for some heels to transition the outfit. Just make sure they contrast with the propriety of the skirt and top. The trick to looking cool in a matronly skirt is to keep the rest of the outfit relatively hip.

Fur Booties and Cropped Pants

Fashion, Style

I love the whimsical feel of this shirt.  It works fabulously with the sunglasses.  The mustard color paired with the plum of the bag is great and plays off of the plum in the print of the shirt.

I love how cropped pants look with booties.  The fur and the color scheme keep the outfit looking fall/winter, even though the pants could look more spring/summer.  Pair this with a black scarf and you’re set for the November chills to come.
