Outfit 1: Something Chic "This is a great look to wear for Fashion Week since there’s so much you can do with it. You can dress it up by adding jewels or a red lip! I went with a basic black shoe but you can really do anything with this; like a bright pop of color added with an accessory."


Outfit 2: Something Bold "Leather pants are my go to for a night out or on a date. I throw on a favorite cami and a blazer and you have the perfect look for any kind of night out. I picked a neon pump to add a pop of color to the outfit."


Outfit 3: Something Cozy

"I wanted to style leather pants with a sweater for a casual daytime look, and to add a little more to the outfit. I think leather pants can take you from day to night and I like pairing a glitzy shoe with a casual sweater to make the outfit feel a little bit more elevated. If you want to take the vest off it still looks cute with just the sweater… This is technically a two in one outfit!"
