I’ve been doing these three ways to wear posts, once a week, for almost two months now, and while it might be quite an effort to curate each post it’s been a fantastic way for me to document my style, and has encouraged me to be ever more creative with my fairly minimal closet.  In fact I rarely struggle to pull together three different looks (which I’ll admit, had been a worry of mine at the start of this), instead I often find myself struggling to narrow it down to just three.  So don’t be surprised if you see some pieces repeated in future posts.

This item is a case in point,  it’s an old favorite of mine that’s been in my closet for a good few years but thanks to the Pittsburgh weather I have a fairly small window of opportunity to wear it. So when the weather does permit it, I have to admit I do wear it rather a lot.  So when it came to sharing only three of the ways I wear it, I did struggle a little.

style solutions, fashion advice, how to wear, body shape, outfit inspiration, personal stylist, personal shopper, online shopping, style tips, simple solutions, how to look good, what to wear, ways to wear, fashion trends, fashion blogger, shopping advice, dress your shape, three ways to wear, pear shape
Leather jacket – Whistles / Skirt – Zara / Boots – DSW / Faux fur scarf – Charlotte Simone / Rings – India

I’ve read that one should stay away from doubling up on leather, especially after the age of 30 (I mean really, come on.  I can’t stand those articles that tell you what you should stop wearing after the age of 30 A load of rubbish), well I love wearing double leather, it makes me feel great.


Denim shirt – H&M / Skirt – Zara / Bangles – Indian markets / Boots – Aldo / Necklace – Tatty Divine

Ah denim and leather (anyone else singing this now?  Sorry.) it’s a perfect paring!  I wear this denim shirt both un-tucked and tucked into the skirt…but I must admit that my favorite is probably when it’s tucked in, like this as it does a great job of lengthening my legs, which is always a plus!


Kimono – Topshop / Camisole – Topshop / Skirt – Zara / Necklaces – Tina Lillianthal, Jane Kenney, Accessorize / Rings – India

It’s only recently started to warm up enough in Pittsburgh to wear this outfit and it was one of my favorites last year so I’m happy I can start wearing it again!  My style has a tendency to soften when it warms up and this outfit is the perfect example of me transitioning to spring.  I also layer less in the summer, too but I’ve loved layering this season so am tempted to introduce a few more lighter, softer, bohemian-esq pieces to my closet this summer so I can continue experimenting with layering..



Does your style vary much from season to season?
