Midi Skirt & Leopard Print Look + The Trick to Wearing Anything & Everything Well

I love a good leopard print piece. While my beret has been sold out, I linked two other similar options that are also cruelty-free and wool-free. I love styling berets because they’re such fun pieces and it takes me back to my time in France. This is really such an easy piece to wear; the main thing you need to remember about styling a beret is wearing it with confidence. Actually, that’s the trick to wearing most things, really.

Think about when you see a model strutting down the runway in her stilettos, her hair whisked back by the force of her body confidently cutting through the air. She looks cool, confident, and pretty much fearless. Now think about a girl wobbling in her heels as she walks down the street, uncertain whether or not she’ll make it to the next step or fall flat on her face. I’ve seen a lot of the former here in Las Vegas on the strip late at night as girls try their best to keep going in their heels even though they’re clearly in pain. I digress, but if that’s ever been you, girl, take your heels off and walk tall.

Did you know a lot of those models on the runway often wear shoes that are a size or two too small for their feet? Yep. Yet, they still walk with such unbelievable confidence because that’s what sells the look. So, next time you’re unsure about how to wear something just remember to wear it with confidence and be your stylish little self.

I can’t end this post without mentioning this chain link satchel. It’s made of faux leather and it’s the most gorgeous shade of cognac. I’ve been showing it on my Instagram feed and stories and so many of you saved it and some of you even purchased it, yay! It comes in three colors and it’s a really versatile piece. Also, the quality of this vegan leather is amazing.  Both the top handle and the cross body strap are detachable. I love the hardware on it too, it’s got such a good weight to it so it feels more high-end than it’s $50 price point. It comes in three colors: cognac, black, and bone.

Plaid Pants Punk

Plaid was something I’d been, for the longest time, reluctant to wear. The pattern can be intimidating but it’s actually really easy to wear. Plaid would exclusively remind me of punk rock chicks or Catholic school uniforms. Since I am neither, I stayed away form these looks thinking they weren’t my style. The trick, however, is to take a strong element from a look—like the ones below, for example— and interpret it your own way so that you feel comfortable and like yourself. Plaid overload works for Gwen because she’s the front woman of a rock band, and she’s…well, Gwen Stefani: fashion icon—duh.

Unless you’re Gwen Stefani, wearing plaid this way for everyday can be tricky.

Since I am most definitely not the front woman of a rock band (I do all of my singing in the shower—fun fact!), I paired my Kut from the Kloth plaid pants with a black ribbed tank from James Perse to keep it casual, and a cashmere blend wrap from DKNY. The drapey cashmere wrap adds a touch of luxe but keeps the overall look of the outfit effortlessly casual. Simple black sandals complete the look.
