Metallic Jacquard

There's something about a jacquard print that instantly elevates any outfit.  It's a fabric that has such a luxe look & feel to it and it adds just a little bit of shine, while still being daytime-appropriate.  When I came across this skirt during a sale last month, I knew it would be a great addition to my wardrobe.  I like that it has a slightly retro feel (in the best way possible) and, thanks to the neutral pattern, I can easily wear this into the spring with a silky white blouse & block heels.

I had every intention of wearing tights with this look because I've gotten so many requests for outfit ideas with tights.  But, after digging through my storage bins from last winter, I couldn't find mine anywhere.  Because it's impossible to make it through a NY winter without them, I will be making an exception to my shopping freeze so I can purchase a few new pairs.  I would wear these pieces with chocolate brown tights to blend with the color of the boots.  I always recommend 60 denier or greater so they are completely opaque & more durable - I typically get black, dark brown & gray because those tend to be the most versatile & wearable colors for pairing with items in my closet.

What I'm wearing:
Warehouse Coat (similar), H&M Sweater (similar), LOFT Skirt (also love this one), 
H&M Scarf (similar here or here), Dolce Vita Booties (similar here or here)
Forever 21 Bag (similar here or here), House of Harlow Earrings (similar),
