We are expecting a crazy heat wave the first part of this week, so styling anything will be a challenge! But I did want to show you another way to style this long pleated skirt–with an edge!
Leather jackets are always in style and are trending bigtime this season, too. The leather jacket definitely gives the skirt the edgy look I was going for!
In order to add some interest and not go too far to the “edge,” I added this stretch lace top. I have had it for a long time and have been seeing lots of love in the fashion shows and coming trends. I like to add something that is seemingly the opposite of an outfit’s theme and leather with lace definitely does that.
My belt is also an old classic in black with leather accents. My black booties (well, OK, make that bootie!) were the perfect complement with the silver grommet accents.
The clutch is also an old standby. I purchased it from Nordstrom a year or so ago. I love the silver and black marbled effect. and it is big enough to hold everything I need.
Silver earrings and a long black and silver necklace complete the look. I would wear this to a casual work party or a holiday dinner for fun.
I thought I needed a little different look with my hair, too, so I pulled it into a ponytail on one side. An easy do for a bad hair day!
