Line I Love: AS by DF

One of my favorite brands that we stock at stylehaus is AS by DF, the upscale sister brand of Alpine Stars.  Designed by Denise Focil, the label focuses on sleek, refined separates for the global traveler and offers gorgeous leathers, the perfect cozy sweaters, and wardrobe staples that are anything but basic.  Every season I have to add at least one AS by DF leather jacket to my collection, and this season it was this luxurious forest green version!

The mix of colors on this jacket- green body, black sleeves, gold hardware- reminded me of my favorite colorblocked Celine Trapeze bag!  This deep green feels almost like a neutral that I can throw on over anything, but it looks especially sleek & chic with an all-black outfit.   I chose an AS by DF lace top to wear underneath (also available at stylehaus!) and added my trusty leather leggings to the mix.

Some simple gold rings from Kami Lerner and shades from Karen Walker completed the “girl on the go” vibe!

I love this mix because I feel like I could go anywhere in it:  the airport, out for drinks, a business meeting, or shopping for a client.  Leather simultaneously says “laid-back” and “luxury”, especially AS by DF leather :)
