Leather Jackets: Splurge Vs. Steal

When Fall rolls around, I instantly start to pull out the leather (and faux leather) jackets in my closet. A proper fitting leather jacket will prove to be one of the most versatile pieces in your wardrobe from these early Fall days, until the beginning of Spring. A great leather jacket used to a lot of saving or whipping out the credit card, but with the countless fast fashion brands stepping up the trend game, a killer leather jacket (not real leather obviously) can be yours for under $100. I’ve rounded up some of the best ones for under $100 (The one I am wearing above is this one from Forever21Men) as well as some splurge worthy jackets if you’re looking for real leather or to make an investment. The rest of this outfit is below, btw! x – Preston

How To Style Camo Pants This Fall

Getting dressed in the early months of fall can be really fun. As a stylist, trying new outfit combinations and working in new layers into my wardrobe is some of the most fun I can have! Being surrounded by clothes all day everyday for work, the whole process of putting together seasonal looks comes easy to me. For most though, I get it…it’s tough. To help you guys out, I’ve jotted down a few easy styling notes I use in my personal life and when on set styling a celebrity or brand. I’ve partnered back up with Old Navy this month and super excited to be able to share some of my general style steps to success for early Fall dressing.

1) Camo Is Neutral: This Fall, camouflage is back in a huge way. For me it never really went anywhere but I couldn’t be happier that this year it’s made its way into all of the big brands. These slim stretch chinos from Old Navy are the perfect shade of camouflage to mix with just about anything. I’ve paired them back to a preppy plaid shirt and monk-straps sneakers for a look thats pulled together and playful at the same time. LINK: OLD NAVY SLIM CAMO PANT

2) Look For Everyday Layers: Of course we all love throwing on a leather jacket or nylon bomber for an instant pop of ‘cool’ in the Fall months, but some days you’ll want to mix it up. Look for pieces like this shawl collar cardigan (this one is made out of the most comfortable sweatshirt material!) that provide chic and easy layering options. Not only will it instantly elevate your look when worn over a great button down, but it’s perfect for layering under a beat up denim jacket or slim blazer.

3) Fall Colors Go A Long Way:  When looking to update everyday pieces like button down shirts, try to look for seasonal shades and patterns to keep your overall look on trend. As classic as a pink or light blue oxford shirt is, I tend to opt for great rustic colors and patterns when updating my shirting like the maroon plaid from Old Navy in this post. Colors you’ll want to keep your eye open for are maroons, olive green, dark greys, mustard, navy blues and anything jewel toned. Shopping in this color palette is a sure fire way to keep your look stylish and seasonal. LINK: OLD NAVY MAROON PLAID STRETCH OXFORD
