On days when I don’t have a lot of time to think about my outfit, an all-black base for my look is one of my go-to hacks. Every year, I purchase at least two new pairs of J Brand Maria high-waist skinny jeans in black because they are an essential styling staple during the cooler months.
Since it’s mid-fall (or feels like winter every other day here in NYC), the faux fur vest is a seasonal layering piece that is an absolute must because it can also be worn on repeat. A fur vest makes wearing this off-the-shoulder top with built-in choker possible, adds a pop of seasonal texture and makes me feel like I’m wearing a warm hug. These suede over-the-knee boots by Stuart Weitzman are another critical item in the fall-to-winter wardrobe, as they can be worn often under skirts or over pants.
Since this look isn’t exactly revolutionary and is a bit of classic for any city-dwelling gal that stays on-the-go, I’ve found that by adding accessories like a colorful bag (this gorgeous green satchel is by Deux Luxe), an ‘it’ girl belt or an additional texture like a velvet cap can elevate this simple look.
Below, you can see more of this easy styling hack, as well as a round-up of faux fur vests and suede boots. Stay warm and stylish, my friends!
