Today, we’ll be styling a burgundy top and black pleated skirt.
I started with a black pleated skirt by DKNY. The skirt is faux leather, knee-length and listed at an affordable price of $195.
It’s autumn and I wanted to reflect seasonal colors. Wine or burgundy is a jewel tone color that’s perfect for fall. It is my go-to color in this set.
Next, I selected a burgundy asymmetric wool-jersey top by Isa Arfen. The soft wool top slips on and has a draped fitting. Asymmetric tops make the upper body appear narrower, elongating the torso. The asymmetric draping creates a flow similar to the black pleated skirt.
Both burgundy and black are deep, rich and strong colors. I spiced things up with a brown-based leopard-print calf hair pump by Gianvito Rossi. It’s a pointed toe, 4-inch heel. Wow!
The bag is a beautiful structured burgundy satchel by Jérôme Dreyfuss. It’s part calfskin and part goatskin. It’s smooth grain texture is a complement to the pleated skirt.
I didn’t want to take away from the beauty of the asymmetric wool top, so I avoided upper body accessories, such as a necklace. Instead, I chose some sweet arm candy by Paige Novick. The black stingray cuff is elegantly layered with gold-toned chains which resonate with the leopard pumps. I grabbed more burgundy with Enamored nail glaze in “Desire Wine” by Marc Jacobs, essentially extending the arm candy right down to the finger tips.
