This was one of my favorite outfits from when I was home. I know what you’re thinking, “girllll, where is your jacket”. Trust, I’m wearing 2 shirts under this sweater and hiking socks. I was still cold, but it’s all in the name of fashion. My mom used to always say, “beauty is pain”.
This sweater has such a beautiful design to it, it’s architectural with its asymmetric shape and mix-matched stripes (sold out at Urban Outfitters). Since it’s oversized I knew I had to wear something tight on the bottom so I didn’t get lost in the outfit. This sweater could easily be paired with any pair of jeans, but I wanted to dress it up a bit so I wore faux leather pants. I prefer leather bottoms that have stretch to them, like a legging, because if they’re even the slightest bit loose I think they look crotch-y (aka diaper like). Is that only me? If they’re stretchier they hug and tuck everything and look sleek and sexy- cus if you’re wearing leather you have to look like a boss.
Honestly, don’t listen to what anyone says about jeggings. If you find the right pair/ design they can be both stylish and comfy. Like these leather pants, and my favorite jeans from Zara that they call “high elasticity”. Another stretchy item that should be your bff is stretch (sock) boots. Over the knee boots that don’t slouch down?! Whoever thought of this is a genius. Love, love, love how sleek they are. I hate gaps between my leg and boots. I feel that “the gap” cuts my legs off. Of course, this isn’t always the case, but being aware of your proportions and lines is extremely important to maximizing what looks good on your body type.
Get to know your body ladies, try on things out of your comfort zone and don’t be scared to do something no one else is doing. I always get people saying to me, “I would wear that, but…”. No ‘buts’, if you want to wear it, at the very, very least you better try it!
