You guys have probably caught on to my method of dressing by now: obsessive. I find a look I love and I wear it ‘til it falls apart- or at least until I update my wardrobe with new options. My go-to look lately? Leather shorts with tights, a plain white tee, and a plaid button down. Perfect for fall in LA!
Leather shorts, to me, are like a perfect pair of blue jeans- they go with everything and are appropriate almost anywhere. To make mine office-appropriate or dinner appropriate, I layer opaque black tights underneath so the look is covered-up but still sexy. I’m dying to add this moto-inspired pair from IRO to my collection!
Next, I add a plain white tee to the look. Of course I’ll mix it up every once in a while, but to be honest I love a good Hanes tee or tank- you can’t really go wrong with one of those!
A plaid shirt is the next piece of the puzzle, either thrown over the tee (always unbuttoned) or tied around the waist. In my dream world, I’d love to have this Saint Laurent version in my rotation. At a cool $1350, I’ll keep dreaming for now.
Booties are my usual choice for footwear, and I’ll go for something chunky and edgy like this pair from Fiorentini & Baker.
To keep the look from getting boring, I’ll add textured or patterned tights from time to time. How unbelievably cool would it be to pair a pair of Saint Laurent’s Swarovski crystal-embellished stockings to the mix?? These are on my wish list, for sure.
Do you think you’ll add this look to your fall repertoire?
