This week’s outfit of the week goes to Sartorial-Revenge’s layered look. This blog shows us how to layer pieces for a warm and cozy Fall outfit. Start with your favorite pair of black tights and pair it with a white tunic blouse. To fight off those cold mornings throw on a black vest or black sweater over top of the blouse. For the last layer opt for an oversized dark grey jacket or cape sweater. Look for ones that have wide arms so that the layers underneath will fit into the sleeves. Depending on the weather you can wear the jacket open or closed. To finish off the look, add a silver or grey clutch to the mix. The best part about this outfit is that you can shed the layers as the sun comes out.

This week’s outfit of the week is inspired by an Olivia Palermo look that is featured on the blog, Beauty by Karis. We love it because it’s comfy, casual, and unassumingly sexy. Look for a pair of soft skinny blue jeans with a few rips and a touch of fading. Pair it with a white long-sleeve blouse then throw on a pair of red strappy high heels to add a splash of color to the look! The shoes will make your legs look long and lean. Lastly, grab a simple beige clutch, perhaps one that has a bit of studding or gold detailing, and you’ll be ready to rock the streets!
