The Leather Layer // Paper Bag Pants + Leather Jacket

Wednesday, September 18, 2019

Nyc fashion blogger Kathleen Harper fall street style.
Jacket season is just about here, which is excellent news for layers lovers like myself! And since perfect fall weather never seems to last long in NYC, I'm already taking advantage of the cooler days we've had here. Before we knew it, it'll be coat season...and THAT is something I'm NOT ready for!

I picked this jacket up from Anthropologie in August (happy birthday to me) and I had my first opportunity to wear it two weekends ago. When I think of leather jackets, my mind immediately pictures a black moto, so I love that this is an unexpected take on one of fall's biggest trends.

After all, (faux) leather has invaded the street style scene this season, with bold head-to-toe looks going mainstream. I'm talking leather tops styled with leather trench coats, leather pants, and leather boots on the bottom. But if all of that's a little too leathery for you, a jacket like this one is the perfect way to dip your toe in the trend.

These paper bag pants have been one of my new favorite things since I tried them on in Athleta back in July. Now that shorts season is coming to a close, I'll be getting even more use out of them. 

They're unbelievably comfortable — as in they feel like a second skin — they're super lightweight and breathable, they're wrinkle resistant, AND they look like a fancy, chic trouser.

[bodysuit: Zara (I also like this one) // pants: Athleta // jacket: Anthropologie // Shoes: Theory (similar pair here) // purse: Kenzo (I also like this one) // earrings: & Other Stories (I also like this pair) // lip color: Kylie Cosmetics matte liquid lipstick in "Khlo$"]

I love that this is an outfit that can easily be worn to work but it's not like your other work clothes — they're cool (and comfy) work clothes 😉. They give off a polished downtown vibe that can carry you even beyond the office.
