Fall Favorites


One fall trend that I’m loving is plaid and leather. On my first day in New York for Fashion Week, I wore my plaid skirt from Karen Millen, with a simple tee and a leather biker jacket to presentations and to enjoy the city of New York. I wasn’t sure if it was going to be hot or not, so I left the hotel with a sweater but ended up tying it around my waist, which brought more patterns into my outfit.


There are so many ways to wear plaid and it’s been a fall favorite for many years but I really like the modern silhouette on this classic pattern. Plus it can be styled in so many different ways from preppy to grunge as seen here.songofstyle-leatherjacket-newyorksongofstyle-wrapskirt-newyork

Every girl should own a great leather jacket that you can always count on. It really gives your outfit that cool girl swag and really edges up your outfit! I love this one from Karen Millen because of the quilted details on the sleeves, as well as the usage of zippers throughout. I felt like a badass! songofstye-laceankleboots-plaidskirt
