Leather should be a staple in your closet and if you are looking for some New Year's Eve Inspiration, you've come to the right place. In this video, I show you all 3 different leather looks that can be rocked anytime during the fall or Winter and the best part about these looks are that they are all affordable and you probably have majority of the pieces in your closet already. Hope you enjoy!
Look 1: Leather Shorts
This look is for those that want to be cute and comfortable. I paired these faux leather shorts that I got from Forever 21, which was about $25, with a white chiffon shirt with gold sequins and buttons that I think I got from Love Culture about a year ago. The heels that I chose to wear was my peep-toe tie-ups that I think I got from Payless a year ago. The only accessories that I wore were some black and gold earrings from Love Culture that complemented the outfit. I didn't want to wear a necklace because it would take away from the sequined collar. I left my hair straight with a flipped side-bang and the make-up look that I went for was golden-plum eyes with wings, lashes and a soft pink lip.
Look 2: Leather Skirt & Leather Boots
This is for those that want a look that's fun and flirty. I paired my SierraSharae.com faux leather skirt with a light blue denim shirt that I brought from Forever 21 months ago. The black leather boots were a Christmas gift from last year that I matched with some thigh-high socks that I found in Forever 21 the other day. They were a necessity for a playful look and for about $5, I couldn't pass them up. The only accessories that I wore in this outfit were the same black and gold earrings from Love Culture and a black and gold strapy "watchlet". This time I did soft curls with a regular hair curler that has a 1 inch & a half barrel. The make-up look that I went for was the same golden-plum eyes with wings and lashes but instead a dark purple lip. (This outfit was very similar to a outfit that I did in my "Ways to Wear a Leather Skirt Video" but with a twist. If you want to see CLICK HERE.)
Look 3: Leather Jacket
This look is for the GROWN and SEXY. I wore a black and white, tight-fitted Aztec printed dress from Forever 21, with a black leather jacket from Body Central, which were both Christmas presents. The black leather jacket gives the look that perfect edge while keeping it feminine with the dress that shows your silhouette. The shoes that I wore were my red and black heels with gold spikes that I got from Alloy.com. I love those shoes!! The accessories that I wore in this outfit were the same black and gold earrings from Love Culture, a gold choker and the same black and gold strapy "watchlet" that I wore in the second look. My hair was wand curled and the make-up look that I went for was once again the same golden-plum eyes with wings and lashes but this time a red lip. I'll admit that the red lip is kind of bold with the golden-plum eye shadow look, so I would advise you to lighten up the eyes if you're going to try this look.
You can mix and match these make-up looks, hairstyles and outfits in so many ways. Just remember that the fun thing about fashion is finding new ways to wear the same old pieces of clothing. To me it's a challenge that I enjoy taking on and I hope you will too.
