First of all, I have to give a shoutout to my Pitt Panthers, who beat #2 Clemson in Death Valley on Saturday. No one saw that coming. WHAT A WIN! Should make for a fun time in Pittsburgh next weekend.
Now onto the outfit. A faux leather jacket was a wardrobe staple that was missing from my closet until about a month ago. I truly believe they have the same versatility as a denim jacket. Wear with a dress, jeans, leggings, you name it. Now certainly if you want to splurge for a leather jacket, then go for it, but I’ve found you can get the look at a fraciton of the price.
Wearing: Cupcakes & Cashmere faux leather jacket | Cabi shirt | Zella leggings | Steve Madden boots | Kate Spade bag (old, similar here and here) | Ray-Ban aviators | David & Young leopard beanie (sold out) | Baublebar monogrammed necklace
This look is maybe a little out of my comfort zone in terms of what I would usually wear, but I plan to get a lot of use out of this jacket on nights out. I love it with a pair of jeans and black riding boots, but I think this edgy look works well too. If you’re worried a black leather jacket might be too edgy for you, I’d recommend trying it in a different color. The one I’m wearing also comes in a blush pink color that’s a little more feminine.
Another faux leather piece I added to my wardrobe this year is this BB Dakota dress, which is currently on sale for less than $50! That’s insane. I’m still going back and forth on a pair of faux leather leggings, but I think the right outfit could convince me to get a pair.
What faux leather pieces are you loving?
