skinny pants

Sportswear is essential to weekend chic. Skinny trousers continue to be in style this fall so why not try a fun pattern or stick to a classic houndstooth paired with unique knitwear on top.

Double zip garments can be worn multiple ways, after zipping up this moto jacket unzip from the bottom. Create a new look by switching out the jacket to a pinstriped blazer. Add a belt to emphasize the waist, yep even over a blazer.

Is it just us or does this model look like she could be Angelina Jolie's sister?

We are obsessed with this look! Uber sexy Givenchy printed skirt with Prada Suede Fringe Sandal. Anything fringe is in. The color combination of deep red heels with sunset gold is striking. Swap out the jacket for a sweater and don't forget to belt it.

Of course skinny jeans are still in style although you will see pant legs widen this Fall. Here we have a super chic look with faux fur jacket for evening. Go casual by swapping to a cotton fleece.

lace

Dress down your lace pencil skirt with an over-sized sweater. When wearing over-sized garments be sure to pair them with a pencil skirt or skinny jeans/trousers so you don't appear too bulky.

leopard

If you think you can't wear leopard you are out of your mind! Leopard is a wardrobe staple and looks great on everyone. Think of leopard as a neutral. Instead of grabbing a black blazer try leopard instead.

We are obsessed again but this time with a leopard and lace ensemble, and a punch of hot pink. Loose the jacket for a feminine demure look. Gorgeous!

Cowgirl glam is tasteful and made urban with wool poncho coats and heeled boots by Saint Laurent. For evening pair your poncho with a jacquard skirt. On weekends trade the skirt for rolled up denim.

Evening gown repurposed

Ever wonder what to do with that old bride's maid dress or evening gown you only wore once? Here are a few ideas. Why not tailor your dress and transform it into a skirt, then layer it with a tee shirt and moto jacket or puffy coat.

Or outfit your floor length evening gown with a leather jacket, push up the sleeves for more casual look, and crossbody bag. Notice the footwear is super casual and masculine, heavy boots or sneakers.
