Trend to Try: Graphic Tee + Leather Skirt

I feel like I’m on repeat when I say this, but I’ve always been a huge fan of classic style—hence the name of the blog!—and that often includes pieces that are polished, structured and minimal and a wardrobe full of neutrals. But every now and then, I’m also the kind of girl who likes to throw a little glitz and glam into my look with sparkle, shine and luxe fabrics like leather. That’s why I’m so crazy about the graphic tee + leather skirt trend—it’s a look that combines both sides of my style personality with a mix of structured silhouettes and sassy pieces. And now I’m finally ready to try the trend myself.

Inspiration for the graphic tee + skirt combo

I’m typically a fan of black + gold when it comes to my outfit and accessories, but the second I saw some of the gorgeous jewels from Brilliant Earth—a fine-jewelry brand that focuses on ethically sourced jewelry, diamonds and engagement rings—I had to rethink that. As part of its Personality Style Challenge, Brilliant Earth asked me to put together a look that fully captures my style, and I think I’ve come up with the perfect tee-and-skirt ensemble to nail my classic-glam look:

You know I’m crazy about burgundy this year, so this thick, luscious coat from Carven was a no-brainer. Adding in a cute graphic tee, a sexy leather skirt, a shiny bordeaux lip, a leather bag and heels, and these stunning white gold pieces from Brilliant Earth, the classic and tailored pieces mesh perfectly with the glam elements in the look.

So tell me: What kind of style personality are you, and what trends and outfits match your style?
