So putting this outfit together was thought out, but I do have to say I am in love with each piece alone so putting it together wasn't a bad thing....
The highlight of this fashion forward brilliant look with Alexander McQueen's black patterned lace leggings @ $210 the one thing I would have to say is that you need to wash this by hand, and keep in mind that it will be like a high priced pair of panty hose.
The black skirt wrap front jersey mini skirt with ruched sides @ $135. James Perse skirt is double layered, has a notch hem at the front, an elasticated waistband and simply slips on. This style is very forgiving and is very comfortable to wear and is a huge addition to the wardrobe basics.
Alexander Wang's black wool blend camisole with a leather bustier @ $375 is a simple way to add a directional edge to any outfit. Slip it on over skin tight pants and stiletto heels for an alternative evening ensemble.
Complete a cool urban look with Alexander Wang's black cropped lambskin leather jacket @$1100 with a sheer mesh underlay. Slip it on to dress up denim at the weekend or toughen tailoring through the week.
Alexander McQueen's black patent leather pumps with a heart-shaped peep-toe @ $695 are the perfect accent to urban separates. Mirror the neon yellow soles with a zesty clutch.
Each item that is shown is great on it's own or to pair it off with other great pieces within your fashion style, so revisit black again, and carry off the wardrobe by the different textures of Black, and go out of the comfort zone and box and fuss it up a bit.
My favorite thus far is the thigh high boots elevate your style to fabulous new heights in Christian Louboutin's black leather thigh high boot @ $2195 Christian Louboutin boots have a pointed toe, stitched seams, a zip fastening at side and a signature red sole. The options are endless with these boots, whether you wear it with a shift dress, a great wool trench coat, great skinny pants,or jean leggings, the options are endless, so when it comes to looking long and lean with the fabulous style of a great boot Christian Louboutin is your designer for the sexy and endless leg boot.
The embellishments of bows has been a hit or miss with some of the designs out there so when I saw these pieces and there is a cool factor in each piece that is shown. The top is from Red Valentino's gray jersey T-shirt with a black tulle bow @ $165 is a feminine new season separate. This top can be toughen up by leather leggings and high platform shoes, but in this case I brought it to be more girly.
Turn heads in Valentino's thigh-grazing black silk-taffeta mini skirt @ $1580 with asymmetric pleats and bow detail. Wear it with simple flats for a day, then add great ankle boots for an elegant rockers chic look.
Black ruched leather boots with a heel that measures approximately 5 inches. Giuseppe Zanotti boots @ $995 have a vent at the front with an exposed silver-tone zip, ruched leather detail, an almond-shaped toe and can be folded down and worn as ankle boots. So when you see a bow embellishment it isn't something to shy away from because it can be elegant but have that cute sex appeal to it.
The great Alexander have been a pivotal part of fashion, Alexander McQueen has been the iconic fashion brilliance of design, and with the unfortunate death of him, each piece that has been created, and still coming is truly a collectors Item. Alexander McQueen has reinvented or reintroduced the skull icon back into fashion, and you will see that there are so many copycats out there, but do pay homage to the true essence of McQueen by embracing his sense of design. The scarf stamped with Alexander McQueen's iconic skull print, this gray silk-chiffon scarf @ $260 is new this season must have for every fashionista. Layer this versatile piece over simple separate.
Alexander McQueen reimagines the classic gray merino wool sweater @ $955 with peaked detailing and an asymmetric cut. This top is really and original top with the peaked detail on back, asymmetric hem and simply slips on and will be definitely a piece that you will be asked by everyone "Where did you find that top?"
Team this it-knit with spray-on skinnies from 7 of all mankind Roxanne mid rise skinny jeans @ $155 No capsule wardrobe is complete without a versatile pair of dark blue denim jeans and this lightweight cotton blend style these jeans are perfect for the new season.
Add statement boots from Giuseppe Zanotti, have buckle fastening strap details at sides, an almond-shaped toe and simply pull on.for a cool off-duty look. The boots are @ $1,295 and the military inspired khaki canvas and black leather ankle-cuff boots. This fashion-forward footwear is the easy chic way to transform your look in an instant.
So when building the wardrobe for the fall/winter pay homage to Alexander McQueen because he truly was a brilliant fashion icon.
I truly love separates that make a statement, when I saw these pieces I had to share so with each piece the details are strong, we all know in the last season the beaded encrusted tops have been huge, but I believe you get a bonus with this design, you get the all in one top and accessory which leads to a great item of choice, these pieces are great to invest in for your wardrobe portfolio. The t-bag's bead encrusted monochrome jersey tank @ $205, is a great buy, to add the wow factor to jeans or the pants I have featured with the great top relax your city silhouette with L'Agence's black slouched wool and cotton-blend pants @ $215 the black wool and cotton blend slouched pants. L'Agence pants have an elasticated waistband, a faux fly at front, side pockets, cuffed ankles and simply pull on are comfortable but is another alternative for the skinny legging or jean.
Walk out in style this spring with Alexander Wang's black leather peep-toe wedges with silver heel detail @ $525. Alexander Wang wedges have a closed-in heel, an almond toe, an elasticated panel at one side and a silver and acetate section at the bottom of the heel.
All three pieces have solid statements the T-bag top has the beading encrusted neckline, the pants have the cuffed ankles, and the wedges have the peep toe, and solid closed heel. Make sure when you find great pieces to make the statement that you include it throughout your whole outfit, and create that STATEMENT!
Fashion is always ahead a season and with fall merchandise hitting the stores fast the great elegance of summer is still around, so when there is an opportunity to dress up casual but shiny chic then do so.
Edun Taupe silk chiffon vest with iridescent sequin embellishment @ $850. The vest has an open front, a raw edge and a grosgrain self-tie fastening at waist, Edun prove that eco-friendly doesn't have to be dull with this sparkling taupe silk chiffon vest peppered with iridescent sequins. Cinch in your silhouette with the attached tie and team with shorts. A basic white cami to go under the vest is always easy and won't take away from the look.
Dress in style the eco-friendly way with elegant summer separates like these slinky cream satin shorts from Edun @ $230 the shorts have pleating at front, side pockets, two buttoned back pockets and metallic flats for polished Upper east side perfection.
Musa's antique-gold leather thong sandals with gold-tone crystal-embellished details are a subtly shimmering casual choice. @ $215 a toe post and a buckle fastening at ankle. Bringing the taupes, metallics, sequence, and satin is great when you want to bring a super elegant way to feel and refined.
