5 Wardrobe Pieces Every Millennial Needs in their Closet

As millennial’s, we’re running from work to happy hour to our dinner dates often without being able to go home in the midle.  When time is limited and our style is important, how do we satisfy both?  The key for style success as a millennial involves five key wardrobe pieces.

The Edgy Leather Jacket

Leather jackets are one of the most versatile pieces you can own because they give off a different vibe depending on how you pair them.

The Strapless Bra 

The strapless bra may be your most convenient piece in your wardrobe because it will work with a wide variety of outfits.  In the day of course you’re more than covered, but at night when you want to strip down to your strapless dress, you’ll be covered without those annoying bra straps showing.

Little Black Cocktail Dress

This off-the-shoulder dress is the perfect example of a dress that will make you love the convenience of your strapless bras.  A sweater of jacket can make it more conservative by day.  It’s simple and elegant and can be dressed up with the perfect jewels for an evening out.

The Chunky High-Heeled Bootie

Of course we all want to impress when we say we’ve been wearing our high heels all day from the office to our walk home or to the bar, but who really wants to do it in stilettos?  A chunky high-heeled bootie with a cushy sole and a small platform is a woman’s best friend and best kept secret.

The Baseball Cap

While I’ve never been much of a hat person, I recently found a brown leather baseball cap that has proven to be invaluable to me on many different occasions.

Whether you’re going to a sports game, hiding from the sun, running errands without makeup, or just trying to add some sportiness to your look, a leather baseball cap is a more stylish alternative to the typical sports baseball cap that many guys wear.

Love,
Molly

This Fall’s #1 Statement Piece in Every Color!

img_6482On any given year, the Fall is when we can look forward to cool jackets, chic sweaters, and ankle booties!  But this Fall, all my attention has been diverted to leather jackets in a variety of colors!

pink-1

My favorite purchase this fall is this light pink vegan leather jacket from Zara.  I stood in the store for about 45 minutes trying to decide between the light blue or the light pink one.  In the end, my signature color won, and I’m happy it did!

Colored leather jackets are the perfect statement piece to wear with any of your Fall basics like a white tee and black skinny pants.

Just when I thought my leather jacket quota was reached, I fell in love with this hot pink leather jacket, which you can buy here: Neiman Marcus

One of the best qualities of a leather moto jacket is that grungy, edgy vibe! Since light pink and hot pink doesn’t really scream “wild and edgy” I needed to incorporate another color into my leather jacket collection!  This metallic silver/pewter jacket is my go-to when I want to kick up my “bad girl” vibe! 😉

When Summer Turns into Fall, FarFetch has you Covered

When guys throw on a button-down shirt over a tee, pair it with dark wash jeans and sneakers, they’re dressed to impress.  But when they top off the look with a leather biker jacket, there’s no stopping them.  The biker jacket is one of those trends I look forward to each season. They’re one of the most versatile pieces you can have in your closet, and that goes for both men and women!

If this is your first foray into the wide world of leather biker jackets, stick with the classic neutral colors: black or grey.  There are so many black leather jackets out there, how do you choose? Pay attention to the details and cut.  A strategically placed zipper can turn a plain biker jacket into a statement piece that no one will be able to ignore.

Admire the jacket both zipped-up and undone.  Both should be flattering and fit you like a glove. Examine the collar; does it give you that dangerous Brad Pitt vibe?

Does the jacket have pockets?  Even if you don’t have a motorcycle to go with it, you never know when you’ll need a spot to hold your smokes.  Not a bad boy? Fine, you can use it to hold your gum.

Once you’ve chosen your biker jacket of choice, learn all the ways to wear it!  Check out FarFetch’s step by step guide below.

3 Looks for Effortless Style

There are two kinds of sexy: One where your at risk of looking like you’re trying too hard and the second that looks effortless.

The look below falls into category number two.  Pair a bra top with a modest leather jacket, simple skinny jeans, and a classy purse.  Take the outfit to the next level with a chunky necklace and sparkly pink shoes.

Look number two is for a pub night when all your friends agree to dress casual.  Nothing says casual more than black leggings.  But just because you’re dressing casual, doesn’t mean you can’t feel good doing it.  A plunge V-neck sweater with gemstone earrings and a fringe bag will counteract the frumpy leggings.  This look follows my golden rule: “When in doubt, show cleavage.”

The third look is for a glamorous night out!  Whether it’s a work event, a charity event, or a dinner date, a little black dress can do the trick.  The dress below is modest with it’s neckline, long sleeves, and midi length, but sexy with it’s cut-out midriff.  To add some sparkle to the sophisticated, sexy dress, throw on a pair of gemstone earrings and an intricate pair of stilettos.  To add some color to the look, try sporting a handbag in a bold color like purple, blue, or pink.
