As much fun as I had with my rambunctious rainbow story from last week, I need a metal and visual break from all that eye candy. You too? You've come to the right place. BLACK ON BLACK ON BLACK.
If I might make a sweeping generalization for a moment, us girls tend to be cooler than our male counterparts- in temperature that is. (But like DUH also in the dopeness department.) And yet for fancy, festive occasions, boys are outfitted in pants and jackets, while we are left with few options other than being half naked and shivering all night. Sure, we can borrow a giant jacket from the fellas (thanks, boys!). But let's be honest, this both kills our cute outfit, AND inhibits us from all the embarrassing dance moves one naturally wishes to perform in any/all festive environs.
Enter: fabulousness via fall layering with black leather skinny jeans. Whether long and flowy, or short and fitted, a dress can become both warmer and cooler when paired with a leather skinny. Throw on some heels to keep the look fancy, and you'll stay warm and be able to boogie your well-dressed, on-trend butt off.
*** Did I mention how handy this layering trick can also be for woops-I-forgot-my-razor / I-really-don't-feel-like-shaving situations? Yer welcome.
