Fall is slowly making its way to Chicago which means it’s sweater weather! Thankfully, the cozy knits have a HUGE comeback this season! Today I am taking the black-and-white trend into fall by pairing a ribbed turtleneck sweater from H&M with an elegant, high-waisted maxi skirt. The über-polished streamlined ensemble almost channels a formal evening gown but with an effortlessly modern feel. Doesn’t this outfit remind you of that time Sharon Stone shook things up at the 1996 Oscars by throwing on a black turtleneck from the Gap with her ball-gown skirt (remember way back when, kids?)?!
As always, thanks so much for stopping by! I seriously heart you all!
PS: Lately I have been swooning over this maxi skirt and this one – I think they are so chic, don’t you agree?! How do you style your maxi skirts?! I would L O V E to hear from you!
Maxi Skirt: JD c/o (sold out, similar here) | Sweater: F21 (old, similar here) | Necklace: Cora Jewels c/o (similar here) | Sunglasses: Sunglasses: Illesteva | Hat: Target (similar here) | Scarf: C&A c/o (similar here) | Leather Jacket: C&A c/o (similar here)
Love the mix of hard and soft with this look! The leather jacket is perfectly with this flowy maxi skirt. 🙂

Oh my…these pictures are fabulous! You look so glamorous and beautiful! The pictures are very professional. Do you mind if I ask what camera you use and what time of day you take your pictures? Mine are never quite as clear and lighting is always a problem. Your outfit is superb! xx…Cortneybre…
Hi, beauty! Thank you for your sweet comment! We use a Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera with 18-140mm VR DX Lens. I take pictures around noon (I feel like the sun is the brightest around that time). When taking pictures always make sure it is a sunny day – that’s pretty much the key! Hope this helps! Let me know if you any more questions! XO
This is the first post I’m seeing, but I am already certain that I love your style!
Love it! You look gorgeous Vanessa! Love the touch of fur 🙂 – Lena

This whole look is just so fantastic .. I love the way you took something as hard and grunge-y looking as a leather jacket and teamed it up with a flowy maxi skirt..

Beautiful! I always forget how lovely a long skirt looks with a jacket! Will definitely be blogging a similar look like this for next week! xx If I am ever in Chicago we have to get coffee! It’s only 3 1/2 hours away from me *le sigh but I rarely go in that direction. :/
I heart you! I look forward to your post! xx
I totally agree! I am soooo excited it’s sweater and light weight coat weather here! This weather is what fall fashion dreams are made of! Love your look!!
