Black x Leather | Street Style

IMG_5127Between modelling and bar-tending I’ve come to have a love/hate relationship with the all-black outfit.  For all the elegant simplicity of it, I always just feel like I’m either about to go to a casting call or start a shift – definitely not something you want in the back of your mind right before a night out.  To bring out the ‘edge’ of an all-black look, try mixing fabrics & materials – a little leather can add a lot of personality and keep you from being mistaken for the waiter at your next event.

IMG_5124This lambskin leather top by Krane Design was definitely love at first sight – the oversized fit & side zipper detailing give it a one-of-a-kind look & definitely make a statement.  Paired with some skinny jeans for balance & a pair of suede boots I think it’s a great quick & easy look – just like an all-black outfit should be!

Fall is such an amazing season to experience the best of Toronto – all of the indulgent & cozy classics that bring out the Canadian in all of us.  This is true for fashion as much as anything else!  The unpredictability of the weather makes layering a must – especially if you’re trying to carry an outfit from day to night.  With this look I layered a basic grey scoop neck t-shirt with one of my favourite cool-weather pieces, a leather vest by Canadian designer Ken Chow.  Tied around my waist is my ‘boyfriend’ shirt, a well-loved plaid number from Club Monaco, rocked with my favourite All Saints denim, a feathered fedora & a pair of shades courtesy of Dolce & Gabbana.

The luxe feel of leather is as exciting as it is timeless:  a great leather vest is the perfect piece to add to your wardrobe this fall and have in rotation season after season.  Personally, I love the added edge it gives my outfits – it’s such an added confidence boost.  Let’s just say that it brings out the bad boy in me so to speak… 😉
