F/W 2014 Essentials

There is something about the temperatures dropping and daylight becoming more and more scarce each day that makes me want to pile on as many layers as possible… Which also leads to wanting shop as much as possible for all of the cold-weather necessities.  There are certain pieces that are so covetable this season, I had to share them with you.  To ensure you are not left out in the cold (wink), grab these winter-time essentials to have ready at a moment’s notice!

Roughin It With Leather

No longer do we see leather only associated with bikers on Harley’s.  Anyone who knows even the slightest bit about fashion knows that you cannot have a complete wardrobe without some leather!  Those in the know are also aware that leather has transitioned from basic black (although that is most definitely still most popular) to a variety of colors!  You can wear leather for it’s warmth – such as jackets, gloves or boots, or you can wear a leather shell top or skirt and feel instantly slimmer and a bit tougher.  Maybe we haven’t left behind the whole leather-wearing-badass-on-a-bike picture, however we’re making it a much chicer trend these days.

Here are some pieces that I love!

Alice & Olivia Front Zip Leather Leggings

Free People Vegan Leather Sleeveless Dress

Everyone’s a Fashion Star

As I’ve previously stated, Michael Kors truly knows what looks fab on every woman, and his Fall ’12 looks do not disappoint!  Kors knows that every woman secretly dreams of a fantasy world where she stars in her own major Hollywood movie or sings her heart out in a big time music industry music video.  So, he created looks just for all of us who totally wouldn’t mind being caught photographed out in a pair of sexy, sleek leather pants or over-sized sunnies.  If you were a rock star or movie star, MK has got you covered with every piece of wardrobe you may need.  So rock that metallic mini or escape paparazzi in a warm, comfy coat.  Oh, and Michael Kors’ Fall ’12 catalog-come-to-life-video (below) will totally get you in the mood for chilly weather and all the bountiful fall fashions it has to offer!
