Burgundy Skirt + Moto Vest

Categories: Fashion

The weather has been absolutely beautiful in Toronto over the past week. With the exception of one rainy day, we’ve had warmth and sunshine for days! I took advantage of this opportunity to wear some of my lightweight fall faves – including this burgundy skirt and moto vest.

This look is all about stylish contrast – with a super feminine chiffon burgundy skirt and an edgy faux-leather moto vest. I love taking my looks to the next level with edgy embellishments!

The look began with this fabulously dramatic hi-low chiffon skirt from Forever 21. Burgundy is the hottest colour of the fall season and believe it or not, this trendy skirt is only $17.80 CAD!

The skirt is partially lined (to approximately mid-thigh) and the eye-catching tail is sheer with a stunning round graduated hemline. The skirt sits at the natural waist and although it’s a relaxed fit, the upper portion is somewhat fitted. With lightweight material, this means that tucking in shirts has to be very strategic! I opted for a bodysuit to avoid any lumps and bumps!

This short-sleeved bodysuit was only $10.80 CAD at Forever 21 and it wears seamlessly under the skirt! I never thought I’d buy a bodysuit, but it’s such a versatile piece to have in your wardrobe – now I want one in every colour!

Due to the tight fitted nature of the body suit, I took a little pressure off myself and added a faux-leather moto vest for a little extra coverage. I love the way it it adds a touch of edge to this elegant look and allows me to work in other black accessories. Only $25 CAD at Aeropostale!

For my accessories, I opted for black and gold jewellery including a leather wrap bracelet, watch and a statement necklace. My bag is small and simple with faux ostrich leather and a woven chain strap and my laser cut peeptoe booties make the perfect shoes to finish the look.
