I think it's very difficult to stay true to your personal style yet still look fresh and on trend. The best way I can describe my style is casual and classic. Often times, my style is heavily influenced by classic, casual pieces and of course, mostly in neutrals. Classic clothes and accessories are great investment pieces, but the style can become boring if it isn't mixed with others. I always try to stay true my style but love adding a twist to a classic look.
What I am wearing:
Sweater: Target ultra-soft v-neck sweater
Boots: Nine West Tilldawn (buy similar)
Sunglasses: Kate Spade Gayla
For someone who loves classic lines, a leather jacket is not always high on my list. Although, I did spend quite a bit of time last year looking for one. I gave up after a while because everything I found was either too expensive or not the right fit. Originally, I wanted a real leather jacket. Later on, I realized it wasn't a smart buy to spend over $300 on something that I wasn't sure about. For some people, leather jackets are winter staples. For me, a leather jacket is just a trendy accessory to my wardrobe. I would grab my pea coat over a leather jacket any day.
For a trendy piece I only wear a few times a year, I am happy with the standing collar biker jacket from OASAP. The faux leather is incredibly soft. The fit is perfect for someone my size. I like the cropped look with subtle rock-chic details. This particular jacket is sold out but they have several different styles to choose from. One item crossed off my fall/winter wish list =)
Here's a recap of what I've accomplished so far on my wish list:
Ankle-strap flats (purchased)
A burgundy skirt (purchased)
A cross-body bag for work (purchased)
A pair of printed pumps (purchased)
A leather/faux leather moto jacket (purchased)
6. An over-sized sweater
8. A leopard infinity scarf (thinking about getting this scarf)
10. The Vinoperfect Radiance Serum.
Readers, how would you describe your personal style?
