Leather Vest + Floral Jeans + White Tee

Last week I featured florals on the blog wearing my floral romper and blazer. Today, I am showing you how to style floral jeans. Flowers seem like something associated with spring time but the site of flowers can freshen up a home, decor, and even an outfit. Here is how I incorporated florals with a summertime twist. I chose cream and white tones to shape the outfit and made them all correlate using nude and gold accessories. Wearing leather in the summer can be a bit tricky if you're in a warm climate like GA, but it is NOT impossible. I paired my oversize leather vest (which I got on sale during the winter sale from Forever 21) with a lightweight tee. Having the lightweight tshirt underneath the leather vest helped me keep cool. When Fall and Winter come around I can use this same leather vest and pair it with a turtle neck or layer it over a full length duster coat. The options are endless. Check out the full OOTD below.

Outfit Details: Leather Vest (Forever 21), Floral Jeans (Charlotte Russe), White Tee (Old Navy), Sandals (Charlotte Russe), Sunnies (Forever 21)

I feel like a chic biker chick with this leather vest on. Pairing a leather vest with a more feminine silhouette (skinny jeans, midi skirt etc.) or fabric (lace silk etc.) can create a great contrast of hard and soft. Next time you decide to wear a leather vest try to add a more feminine touch with something less edgy to balance out the look and add an element of surprise.

Here are a few examples to get your fashion brain going:
Leather + Lace
Leather + Silk
Leather + Chiffon
Leather Jacket + Maxi
Leather Vest + Crop Top + High Waist Jeans
Leather Tee + Midi Skirt

Happy Monday lets make it a productive one,
