With only a week left until Thanksgiving, I’m finding myself slowly but surely getting into the holiday groove and it’s even begun to show in my current wardrobe. Every year I like to make a mental note of items that I’d like to freshen up or revamp, and leather trousers were definitely on that list. In the past I’ve gravitated toward leggings but this year I was leaning towards something a bit more elevated, and these paper bag waist trousers were the perfect option. In my opinion, the straight leg and tie detail allowed for a more chic and sophisticated take on the edgy garment. Aside from that, I’ve already begun to feel slightly overwhelmed by the abundance of turtlenecks and mock neck sweaters on the market. Granted, we’re approaching the Winter months so of course it’s expected, but I personally wanted to challenge myself to style a different type of top. To my surprise, this ended up being a lot easier than I initially thought and just as I was losing hope, a chain printed button up caught my eye. “Scarf printed” shirts are quite on trend at the moment and though I felt like this was slightly out of my comfort zone, I decided to go for it anyway. To keep the top as the focal point of the look, I knew I wanted to keep any additional pieces black; however, I figured this would also be a good time to incorporate different textures. Despite wanting to stay away from turtlenecks, I made a slight exception and chose to layer a lace version under the shirt for some added interest. The rest of my accessories, were solely added to play off the colors in the bold print. I wanted to highlight the gold chains by adding a pair of black pumps with a metal cap toe detail and my ring-handle bag. For some final touches, I chose to complete the look with my red tinted frames and a bright red lip for a pop of color. Overall, I’m pleased with how this look turned out and I’m excited to style some more outfits suitable for this festive season! Let me know in the comments what types of holiday looks/content you’d like to see in the upcoming weeks. Until next time!
