Babes Against Bullsh*t Jacket + Wrap Skirt

Claudia Di Capua

T-Shirt: J. CrewJacket: Understated Leather via RevolveSkirt: Topshop (very similar here) / Boots: Public DesireSunglasses: Ray-Ban

The Look

It’s the start of a new week, so I thought a slightly motivational post would be fitting. With all of the recent women’s initiatives that have taken the world, but especially the U.S. by storm, it only seemed appropriate to show my support using my mode of creativity —clothing. I wanted this ‘Babes Against Bullshit’ Understated Leather denim jacket last summer, but it wasn’t until a few months ago that I found it on sale! I was so happy to have snagged it. QUICK TIP: if you love something, but aren’t ready to pay the price, remove it from your cart and add it to your (what is this called). This has worked well for me on sites like Revolve because this section lives right below your cart, so you can always see when they have adjusted an item to a lower price!

I’m obsessed with cool patchwork and love how the ‘Babes Against Bullshit’ has a slightly western feel to it. The light wash and cropped, raw edge denim makes this jacket a perfect piece for summer! I linked this jacket along with another similar version above!

This asymmetric wrap skirt has been so useful in the almost two years that I’ve had it. It transitions so well from day to night and has a super cool balanced, but off-balanced look. The check print is super on trend and the belt adds some visual depth and interest. For a warm spring day, a simple t-shirt is all you need. It’s fits so comfortably underneath a denim jacket! 

I paired this look with my white stiletto Public Desire boots (which are weirdly hard to come by in this style anymore), rounding off the subtle space cowgirl look I had going. While I could have gone with jeans, it was too perfect of an opportunity to wear this skirt. Always test out all of your theories! I’ll save the denim on denim for another day!

Black Puffer in Soho + How I Test Out New Styles & Trends

Claudia Di Capua

Top: Express (similar here) | Coat: Gimo's (similar here) | Jeans: Levi'sBoots: Alexander WangSunglasses: Asos (similar here) | Belt: HauteLook

THE LOOK

It’s still cold out, so I’m still breaking out jackets and coats! When it comes to puffer coats, I like to select ones that have something special or unique to them, otherwise it looks like any puffer. This slightly longer jacket has a slight sheen to the black material, which drew me in. The dramatic white collar and zipper line are what sold me! The puffer is warm on its own, but the fur collar take it to another level. This was super helpful on this particular day because I was wearing a sleeveless turtleneck underneath. I linked a similar one above because this one is a showroom pull and comes out next season. 

Most of the items in this look were found in my closet, meaning I didn’t have to go out and buy new things to build this look. I love when that happens! In fact, this sleeveless turtleneck, Levi’s jeans, belt and Alexander Wang boots are a bunch of my favorite go to’s for everyday use. The look is very clean, but includes a hint of edginess with the boots and accessories. 

How I Test New Trends

Colored sunglasses were something I had been wanting to try, but not something I wanted to spend a chunk of money on before I was sure I liked them. In these moments, I turn to Asos. This online store has literally everything! Asos always has the best prices on versions of trending or popular styles of any fashion item. I highly recommend turning to them if you want to try a new style, but are not sold 100% yet. I ended up liking my colored sunglasses, but if I hadn’t, I would have only lost $10 if I chose not to return them. Once you start strategizing your purchases, you end up saving money in the long run and purchasing what you love more often.

Teddy Coat + Alexander Wang

Claudia Di Capua

Top: H&M Jacket: i.am.giaPants: H&MBoots: Alexander WangSunglasses: Ray-Ban

The Look

Vacation is officially over (although keep an eye out for the St.Lucia video coming soon) and I’m back to the NY street style. Not taking this lightly as you can see with this combination of teddy coat, patent leather and a sheer top! I was inspired by the styling of I.am.gia products. The website and Instagram is super edgy and I’m all about it.

This jacket is from—you guessed it—I.am.gia. If you’re looking for a cool statement piece with a little attitude, that site is for you! This jacket is so cozy and priced perfectly. I wanted a teddy coat that would look oversized, but not sloppy and have movement rather than staying stiff. I.am.gia did all of that  and more! I love it so much I may get it in black too.

Similar to how they would style a look on the I.am.gia website, I went with a pair of patent leather pants and sheer top from H&M. This top has proven to be so useful for layering. You can wear it with everything from a leather jacket to under a button down blouse. It’s perfect on it’s own as well with high waisted jeans! The mock neck look is what solidifies that minimal street style vibe. I have been very into cropped pants as of late. I will always love my jeans, but branching out into other pant styles has helped to broaden my wardrobe. Patent pants are great because you can keep them edgy pretty easily because they are by nature, or you can make them more elegant by adding a feminine blouse.

One of my favorite purchases of the season has to be these Alexander Wang boots! The soles are the perfect height, the leather is as smooth as can be and there is the perfect amount of studding. The silver details are what sold me on this boot as it adds that contrast. They fit true to size and are the perfect go-tos!
