A Stolen Idea: Zara Lookbook

When Zara launches their monthly lookbooks they are so inspiring! Some of it's wild. Some of it's not applicable to everyday life. Some of it's super edgy and can't be pulled off. And then some of it can be taken in concept and made your own! 


When I saw the above outfit in the Zara November lookbook I got super excited! I have been searching for a way to wear a leather peplum tank that I got from Zara last spring. I have only worn it twice because it isn't that, errrr, work appropriate and never felt quite right under a blazer. The one feautured above can be found here for $79.90.


Here's how I put this stolen look together...

Leather Peplum tank (Zara: old, similar here or here) /  Splendid turtleneck here - go for a thin and tight one /  Jessica Simpson Black/Gold Pumps (old,but similar here - I love these)  /  H&M plaid pants here

- keep it simple. A tight top should be paired with a looser pant.

- when wearing a top like a peplum that creates/accentuates your curves, it's important to have balance. Add a pointy shoe because it visually elongates the legs so they appear longer and leaner.

- plaid is a great choice for your winter pants wardrobe, but choose a subdued color scheme, The pattern is already loud enough, it doesn't need to be bright too!

I love a stolen idea....but it's always critical to adapt it to your style and stay true to who you are!!!

Have a fun, fashionable day!
