how to style black leather leggings like a bloggerI’m a firm believer in the power of layering for winter. And since I’m already starting to get bored from my winter uniform of a mama-bear down parka, I decided to winterize my faux leather leggings. Leather leggings and a moto jacket are pieces I would wear during transitional weather. So to make them winter-proof, I added lots of layers – a cashmere sweater, a cashmere scarf, and a chunky hat.

Sweater and High Heels

Black_Pants_Heels5Opposites attract. And mixing delicate with chunky is a secret style weapon (like mixing high and low). So mixing high heels and a sweater, like these delicate, strappy heels and a super chunky sweater, always appeals to me. Examples of mixing opposites are everywhere on style blogs – like a biker leather jacket paired with a long, flowing dress, or tall boots and a short summer dress, or a suite jacket and worn-out jeans. But those are not the only styling tricks you can use.

Transitional Layering

transitional weather styleLayering is my way of coping with transitional weather style. I’ve always found dressing for transitional spring weather or transitional fall weather more difficult than dressing for weather that’s definitely hot or unmistakably cold. But the one upside of transitional weather is that it lets me play with layers. And I think layers are very chic. Layered looks let me combine the same old pieces in a new way and give me a completely different look.

This casual spring look combines two of my favorite staple pieces – a leather jacket and a fur vest, that up until now I’ve always worn separately. Worn together, both pieces take on a new meaning and become almost unrecognizable. It’s a really chic way to freshen up a transitional spring look without having to buy anything new. Because why buy anything new when, less is more and minimal is chic.
