Now, for part two of my NYFW outfits, I present to you a look that unabashedly embodies “Grandma trying to make ~cool~ happen”. That is, if Grandma rummaged through her millennial granddaughter’s wardrobe and gave leather skirts a twirl because she wanted to feel young and hip again.
If you continue to scroll down, you can feast your eyes on a sight you will probably see only three times a year: me in a skirt. While my inner pants lover was itching to get out, I suppressed its urges for the sake of marrying masculine and feminine styles. Between the patent leather skirt and checked blazer, this outfit is a bona fide ’80s love child.
By the grace of the fashion gods and their right-on trend forecasting, this checked blazer is going to be the star of my fall wardrobe. Not that I care one iota about trends, but it definitely justifies my obsession even more.
If you need me, I’ll be devouring my leftover Talenti and scouring the Internet for all-checked everything.
