Obviously, gold is a major mainstay in my personal style. And, like any New York girl does, I love black– especially when there are unusual textures involved (distressing, leather, fur…) When I picked up these black and gold striped heels from JCrew (on sale!), they inspired me to put together an outfit around these two wardrobe foundations. The shirt is actually a great find from H&M, in a very now color: mustard (gold’s saturated cousin). The distressed black jeans add the right amount of texture and edge to to outfit; extra plus for having knee-holes that I am obsessed with currently (they remind me of my awkward tomboy years where my jeans got holes in the knees the “natural” way lol!). This leather jacket is an old go-to from Mango– a treasure in genuine leather for $200, with a perfect fit and nice metal detailing…I would literally wear it everyday if I could!

Hope this inspires you to use an accessory as the foundation to build a look!
