If there's one thing to invest in for your fall and winter wardrobes, it's definitely a quality outerwear piece, and while this leather stunner from IRO is definitely a splurge, VAULT offers several great options to keep you warm and stylish this winter. (For a hard-working, goes-with-everything pick, I love this grey leather jacket by Latitude Supply Co. for under $200.) The leader of the outerwear pack, a leather jacket is a true wardrobe staple that comes in especially handy on those days when you change clothes five times and create a closet disaster before leaving the house. I actually haven't had a leather jacket for a few seasons and just picked one up this fall. On the not-so-rare jeans and tee days lately, a leather jacket is a nice alternative to throwing on an oversized sweater. It'll take your look from just rolled out of bed to somewhat pulled together, instantly.
For the look above, I love how the edgy and oh-so-luxe leather jacket pairs with a sweet and simple tunic and over-the-knee boots. I've searched for a couple of months now for a great pair of over-the-knee boots that are simple, well-made, and affordable, and this flat version from World Footwear Group (available in black or brown) is about the most insane steal I've seen. (They're right around $50. Bananas.) They're on their way to me now, and I can't wait to wear them...everywhere. I'm a serious scarf lover, so this cozy little snood was a no-brainer addition. Along with the leather clutch and blue mirrored sunnies, I love that it adds a bit of color to an otherwise drab look. An eclectic mix of silver and black jewelry completes the look. For these pieces and TONS of other great finds, head over to VAULT to browse their handpicked selection of fantastic designers. My picks? Check out a few of my faves here. Hope everyone had a great weekend!
