Chambray Upgrade

As fall rapidly settles in, I've found it's important to make layers work while still maintaining some style. Now that I've built Fashioned, I find myself scrolling through the snaps being more and more inspired to take risks and mix pieces in ways that I haven't yet tried.

I've recently acquired this leather DVF skirt and typically wear it with a button down chambray shirt. Because I really like mixing denim with leather, I wanted to try something similar but more comfortable in the cooler weather and pulled out my boxy pullover to give it a shot. I knew that wearing a baggy top and a pleated leather skirt could potentially make me look bigger so by tucking in the front of the top and throwing on a chunky necklace I was able to give it an edge while keeping it flattering.

This fashion-risk win gives me confidence to keep trying new combos and putting twists on my standard style.
