Most people will define fall as “Sweater Weather” because you finally get to dust off your chunky sweaters and wear them like they are your second pajamas, but for me, it’s not truly fall unless I can wear some boots and scarfs. I tend to wear sweaters and boots year-around, so really, wearing a scarf is the defining factor.
A thick knitted scarf and a good leather jacket are my staples for surviving fall and winter. Despite what people think, it does get cold in California. For me, investing in a leather jacket is a must. I wear them almost everyday and they are extremely versatile. I especially love this leather jacket because it is really thick, so there’s really no need to bulk up underneath to stay warm. I wore a simple muscle tank and I didn’t feel cold at all. The detachable hood is an added bonus.
Since the leather jacket does edge up the outfit, I chose to wear some moto jeggings. I was drawn to these jeggings for the knee design and texture. I think it really adds dimension to what is a very monochrome outfit. To finish the “moto” inspired outfit, I wore my trusty engineer boots and donned some vampy lipstick and I was ready to take on the world. I mean really, who’s gonna mess with a girl wearing a dark lip?
