Leather in the Summer

No matter what Oprah says, I wear white in the winter and leather in the summer. All it takes is styling your items so that they are more seasonally appropriate. As a [new] New Yorker black clothing dominates most os my wardrobe. I actually have an entire closet dedicated just to my black clothes. When I purchase black items, I try to find something different — length of dress or sleeves, cool construction or different fabrics/textures. Leather (similar to wool, velour and lace) are difficult to transition from winter to fall, unless you pair them with something else. My outfit above and below isn’t special, just speaks to the fact that a sleeveless dress (no matter the fabric) can be work year-round. I particularly like to wear heavier fabrics to the office because the air conditioning is on full blast anyway! Not to mention, most restaurants are cold once you get inside!

Freshen up Your Vintage Florals

Written by President ELLA

I’m tying to use what I have!! I dug back in my closet to see what I own that I can still wear this season. Looking into this season’s trends, the easiest trend for my closet to take on is water florals. Florals can illicit a sense of warmth that may make you think they are more appropriate for the spring or summer, but choosing the right floral, or pairing your florals correctly can help you transition your wardrobe through the seasons.
