Tomorrow is the beginning of October and that means crisp air, falling leaves and..Leather! I’m obsessed with Free People’s vegan leather hooded jacket. It is the perfect piece of outerwear for fall to pair with that LBD..because we all know that they are a year-round staple piece. And for more of a care-free look try the IT shoe of the year..the bulky two-strap slip on. A bulky shoe is actually more flattering on the leg than you would think. Whether you pick these up from Steve Madden, Jeffrey Campbell or Birkenstock themselves there are rules for stylishly wearing them. A fresh pedicure is a must. And it can’t look like you’ve had them for years; otherwise it reads hippie. I suggest a metallic leather or a polished patent style instead of the traditional suede.
