Mixing textures is key for fashion this winter. The shiny black leather with the petite floral pattern make me happy. I first wore this outfit with black boots, but the amount of leather felt overwhelming. So I switched it up and paired it with brown suede boots and liked it better.
The moto jacket is still very much in style since it made its first appearance on my blog last year, which is great because it is such a fun style to wear! Zip it up and make it the focal point of your ensemble or leave it open and show off your outfit underneath–you can’t lose. There are moto jackets in multiple price points and materials. For a lower price point, shop second hand or check big retailers (Target had a bunch of cute and inexpensive ones recently). Mixed fiber jackets like this one, that combine leather with fabric instead of full leather, can bring the price down too.
Leather and floral make a great combination for wintery months, whether you’re seeing friends or putting up an evergreen wreath. I thought the wreath needed a few pine cones.
What are your favorite patterns or textures to pair up this season?
