You all know I love fall as the cool weather promotes some of the best fashion of the year. I crave wearing my leather jacket all year. And I find only certain accessories are best worn at a certain time of year, like the bag I decided to pair with my look for today. This look was shot in the park behind OCAD and the AGO, downtown Toronto. Juxtaposing clean lines and dark colours with bright and earthy scenery behind: the theme for the latest look on S&L…
For this fall look, I paired shades of blue and black together; I think they worked great together! Black added edge, blue added spunk.
I threw my favourite leather jacket by The Kooples over my shoulders for an ease of edge, atop a plain black Wang tee, and my new drop-crotch trousers by COS (which just opened up on Bloor Street, finally!). I think these pants added some high-fashion flair to the look, especially as I’m normally in jeans.
Paired with these easy pieces, I have my purple suede Lanvin kicks which are both funky yet cool at the same time, and I found worked quite well with this look. And of course, the bag de la jour, my new Saint Laurent Sac de Jour in embossed croc. Words can’t describe my obsession with this beauty; it has to be the Holy Grail piece in my collection. Streamlined, highly structured, exotic yet classic, and insanely cool…the list of qualities could go on. I’m in love.
I also met a squirrel that day 🙂
I’m looking forward to shooting many more fall fashion posts for Sass & Leather soon. For now, take some inspiration on these classic pieces for your own fall wardrobe, and the dark-shaded minimalism as a a fall fashion aesthetic. I know that the concept of this look will inspire many more of my daily clothing choices in the days and weeks to come. Key pieces like these—a black tee, oversized trousers, a clean leather jacket, edgy neutral sneakers, and an amazing bag—will definitely be on #repeat.
