Styling Plum Skinny Pants

Would you believe I still have outfits left that I didn’t get to post during 20 Days of Winter Fashion? I really went gangbusters with this style series!

I’ve been holding onto these pictures because every day there seems to be something else more important to post, but these pants are 40% off and sizes are getting depleted, so I decided it was time to share.

These pants look more like colored jeans than leggings. They have a front zip with button closure and 5 pocket styling like jeans, but they’re made of a super soft and stretchy brushed sateen that is a cotton/rayon/elastine blend.

They are super comfortable and flattering with tons of colors to choose from, and they make a nice alternative to jeans for casual wear. Also, some of you could probably get away with wearing these to work. For size reference, I have the 28.

I topped them with a grey cashmere turtleneck and my black leather jacket (similar) for a look I would wear to the mall or to run errands or to have coffee with a girlfriend.

I know I’ll get comments about my footwear of choice. Yes, it’s cold. Yes, I’m wearing mules with bare feet. What can I say? I like to live dangerously. Ha!

I would probably not wear socks with mules, but I suppose you could if they were thin and had a design to them or something interesting. I’m just personally not a fan. I’d rather put my mules away till next fall or save them for warmer days. We do sometimes get some mild winter weather here in PA, so i just keep them in my closet and wear them when it warms up for a few days or when I know I won’t be outside for very long.

Another footwear option with this outfit would be black ankle boots, or you could wear tall boots with it as well.

This Bernardo leather jacket has served me well. I got it last fall in a Trunk Club, and I wear it a ton. I’m a huge fan of this brand. The prices aren’t outrageous, and the quality is decent. This similar jacket is on sale right now, and it also comes in burgundy and brown. For size reference, I have a medium in mine.

Also, this turtleneck is super soft with a relaxed styling, and I have it in a small. For some reason, they haven’t put it on sale this year, and I guess they haven’t had to. It seems to be selling out. I also have the camel, and it’s a really pretty shade.

I accessorized with this layered station necklace and large hoops, and I carried my snakeskin bucket bag.
