Polka Dots & Leather Skirt Anyone? A Beautiful Pattern and Texture Mixture


B&W Polka Dot & Leather Skirt

This outfit blends a polka dot patterned blouse with a leather textured skirt by Ann Taylor to create an alluring silhouette.  The leather red belt brings the outfit together by creating a focal point for which the eye is drawn.  The coordinated necklace mimics the polka dots found in the blouse and adds another dimension to the outfit.  As a whole, this outfit is visually pleasing with a flair.

For other accessories, I would wear a pair of studded earrings or a very simple pair of complementary drop earrings.  I would be sure to keep it simple so as not to clash with the outfit.  Whether to wear tights with this ensemble depends, in part, on the weather and your geographical location.  I’m located in Florida and it’s not “tight weather” too often.  However, a pair of black tights would look great with this outfit.  For shoes, I wear my ankle boots with this outfit.  I just purchased a new pair for the season and I can’t wait to show them to you!  Knee high boots will also work well here too. This outfit is so ornate that few accessories are necessary.  If you overdo your accessories, the impact of the outfit will suffer.

This outfit is one my favorites for fall because the blouse is summer breezy and carefree while the leather skirt brings a heavier more cold seasonal feel.  It’s blending the two seasons into one outfit. Because this outfit includes a leather skirt and you are likely to wear either black ankle boots or knee high boots, I think this is a great day-to-evening outfit.  The blouse is light and carefree which makes it great for day whereas the leather skirt and boots give it a more nighttime look.  For brunch, lunch, or dinner, this outfit will make you stand out like a true Fashionista!  Not only will this outfit turn heads, it will make you the center of attention!

Paisley Tunic in Orange, White & Black Great for Fall!

This paisley print tunic with three quarter sleeves and fall colors is perfect for almost any time of the year.  The tunic’s fabric is made of linen which makes it breathable, but not practical for colder climates during the frigid moths.  Regardless,  I’ve found this tunic to be a welcomed addition to my wardrobe as I can wear it year round living in Florida.

What do I pair it with?  I like to wear it with khaki pants (the skinny cut) or my black jeans.  The tunic looks almost dress-like so I stay away from skirts.  However I can see wearing a cute skirt with it and it looking great!

Don’t forgot accessories!  Even a busy print like this paisley tunic needs a necklace so I found the one in the photo in my jewelry wardrobe.  It’s a simple piece consisting of orange and dark charcoal stones.  It goes with the tunic quite well.

This tunic was a great find and an asset to my wardrobe.  Do you have any great finds in your wardrobe?  If so, I would love to hear from you!
