If you could only add one more jacket to your wardrobe, make sure it’s a moto jacket. Why, you ask? Simply because it’s a style that can be paired with just about any look. Pair it with your t-shirt and jeans outfit but also, pair it with a dress or skirt. The jacket accentuates a more rugged feel to a look with a tee and distressed jeans. It can contrast a feminine dress or skirt look and give it an overall, more interesting vibe. Any way you pair it, there is no wrong way!

P.S. If you’re partaking in the early sale season festivities, a few notable designer sales:

Net-a-Porter
My picks: rich burgundy Stuart Weitzman boots for 50% off (Lowlands {review} also 50% off), Chloe wallet for 30% off, a versatile striped jersey dress for only $50, a dress appropriate for a black tie function that won’t break the bank (under $125)

The Outnet {code SNEAKPEEK for extra 50% off!}.
My picks: Tory Burch boots for $114, Saint Laurent heels for 70% off retail (perfect for all those upcoming parties), Alice & Olivia vest for under $100, neutral boots from Sam Edelman for 75% off {under $38}


SHOP THE LOOK:

Blush pink moto jacket – Ann Taylor (2 colors) (similar here & here {both under $68})

I’ve only recently been able to participate in sweater weather due to the warm November here. I picked up this sweater about a month ago and absolutely love it. The sweater is a gorgeous striped pink and off-white color combination. With the medium to heavy weight construction, it feels much more luxurious than its actual price tag. And, it’s also 100% cotton so I can actually put in the laundry without a second thought. Winning, all around! I would hurry to pick it up before sizes run out since it’s now marked down to only $18!


SHOP THE LOOK:

Navy blazer – J.Crew (this season’s budget friendly version (similar here & here {love the pinstripes})

Striped pink boatneck sweater – J.Crew (similar here & here)

White skinny jeans – GAP (similar here {40% off and under $40} & here {only $68})

During the colder months, I tend to gravitate to neutral colors with an occasional pop of color to transform the look. If you’re looking to invest in something for the fall, a camel blazer is a great place to start. Blazers are my go-to outerwear piece whether I’m looking for something work appropriate or elevating an off duty look. This rich camel color blazer pairs well with just about anything and the popped collar gives it a fashion forward feel.


SHOP THE LOOK:

Camel blazer – J.Crew (similar here {under $100} & here {boyfriend cut and only $21})

Sleeveless grey mockneck sweater – TopShop (similar here & here)

Black skinny jeans – J.Crew (similar here {under $100} & here {under $50})

Black bow pumps – Ferragamo {on consignment $140} (similar here {under $100} & here)

Black leopard east west tote – Kate Spade (similar here & here)
