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 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.
What do you think of my sunny day fall look? Here are three style tips to take away:
- Looking for colour in your fall wardrobe? Buy some burgundy!
- Bodysuits are not just for dancers.
- Moto vests add the perfect amount of edge to any outfit this fall.
Happy shopping and here’s hoping this warm weather sticks around a little longer!
