Fall Trends: Leather Mini & Utility Vest

Utility jackets/vests have officially made a comeback. Yes, they have been lurking in the closets of the fashionable for some years now but they have officially come out of hiding and are literally in everyone's closet this Fall. Be it oversized camouflage jackets or sleeveless longline vests like this one I'm wearing.
This sleeveless utility jacket has a cascade look to it that just melted my heart since I have a soft spot for cascade jackets. And since I am all about multitasking my closet, I also love the fact that I can style this vest in lots of different ways. For this look, I went with a glimpse of sexy by showing off my shoulders with an off shoulder top and my legs with a leather mini. And I polished off the sexy look with this peep toe bootie.

The transition into Fall is one of my favorite times of the year in terms of fashion. I love layering, light weight jackets, booties and boots, sweater dresses, scarfs and the list goes on. One of my favorite pairings is a midi dress over boots. Since it's still a bit too hot to pull out my boots yet, it definitely was not too hot for this lace up boots on this day. 

Looking at NYFW pictures this past month, I noticed a lot of free flowing, unstructured styles and thank goodness that fashion is moving away from the body conscious phase that we have been in the past years. I love dresses like this because of their multi-fuctional capacity. I wear this dress during the very hot summer days with some open toe sandals, during the fall with boots like this or with a turtle neck underneath during the winter with a thigh high boot and midi coat. Like I said, multifunctional.

Back to School...

Since it's back to school season and with all the back to school promotion going on everywhere, I've been feeling very nostalgic about the good ole school days when life was carefree and responsibilities seemed a thousand years away. So, Fashion to Figure and I collaborated to bring you guys a selection of back to school looks featuring the cool kids.

Look 1: The Flirt

This girl is all about showing some skin but still keeping it classy and trendy. I chose this beautiful, floral print dress that features a cut out neckline because it is a really great transitional piece for Fall. It can be paired with some tights during the cooler days and will look great layered with a midi jacket or even a sweater. I paired it with this grey booties also from FTF which are super comfortable for jetting from class to class all day.

Flirty Looks

Look 2: The Rule Breaker

This girl is edgy, on trend and does not sacrifice comfort for fashion. For this look, I picked up this hot commodity floral bomber jacket which I saw on blogger bae Val of Fashion on a Curve and just knew I had to have it. It is trendy, edgy and super comfortable. Also, it is another great layering piece. I paired it with these equally comfy faux leather panel leggings which will be a stable come cooler weather. and a super cute graphic tee.

Comfy Looks

Look 3: The Trendsetter

And finally, this girl knows the trends and knows the value of basics. Basics will always be trendy and will never go out of style. Take this black midi for example, I cannot remember a time when a black dress was not considered stylish. This midi dress is easy glam at its finest and can be dressed up, down and sideways. I went with a casual flair by pairing it with tan booties and a tied jacket for chill weather. But I can also easily style this with stiletto heels or sandals. You just got to love that versatility!

Puma Slides

When I first saw these Puma slides designed by Rihanna,I knew I was going to get them, because nothing screams girlie as much as these fur pink fur slides and I am unapologetic-ally as girlie as they come. Now I have been wearing these slides everywhere since they are ridiculously comfy but I knew that I wanted to style them with my pink satin duster for some easy glam. (See how I styled this duster previously here). These slides only go up to an 11.5 but it's definitely big enough for my size 12 feet and they come in white, pink, black and I think grey.

To commemorate the beginning of Fall, I styled this slide with a high neck cropped top and a high waisted zipper detail pant and of course, my glam powder pink duster. Satin dusters are in right now and I have seen some of my fashion gals rocking them quick a bit. One of my favorite online retailers have a satin collection out now. Check it out here.

These days classic, elegant pieces are very appealing to me. Pieces that I know will stand the test of time, and this cape jacket is one of those pieces to me. I can just imagine myself, sixty years old and wearing this cape to luncheon with my daughters lol.

You might remember a previous post I did this Summer where I talked about not sleeping on your local boutiques? In case you don't, check it out here. But I stand by what I said there, do not sleep on your local boutiques y'all! You will find the most amazing pieces there, pieces that might not be available in large scale commercial stores. I picked up two cape jackets from a local boutique recently, one white, one black and I am so happy with my purchases mainly because i know that it will take a minute before some of my favorite fashion brands get it together and produce pieces like this for plus size women. 

I was invited to an all white party recently and I wore this outfit, regardless of the fact that it wasn't all white but heck, you work with what you have right?
