In general Carli and I style outfits for the blog and then wear them IRL after that since we try to style our newest pieces as soon as we buy them. This outfit came to be in a different way, however. Back in April, we went to the Cupcakes & Cashmere 10 year anniversary celebration. It was a chilly night so I knew I had to wear my faux leather pants and I decided to really play up the texture and I paired them with this fringed top. I adored how the outfit came together and it was also surprisingly comfortable. I have worn it a few times since and I decided it was time to showcase this outfit on the blog!
I personally love all black. I find it to be slimming and classic. A way to make an all-black outfit more fun is to add some texture. This fringe top is so fun and I generally save it for a night out because it’s definitely louder than my everyday style (read jeans and t-shirt). I have worn this top with black denim as well but there’s something about pairing it with the faux leather pants that take it from zero to one hundred (real quick). By the way, these pants are my favorite find of 2017. They’re technically leggings but they do have a concealed zipper on the side. They’re on the thicker side so they hold their shape better than “liquid” leggings would. I find them to be so flattering and comfortable. I didn’t think they would still be on the Zara website but I found them here!!
As you can see from the title I think this would be the perfect fall date night outfit and I plan on wearing it on numerous occasions throughout the coming months!
