Belted Wrap Dress + Leather Jacket

Claudia Di Capua

Jacket: Mango (Very Similar Here & Below) / Dress: Zara (Similar Here and Below) / Boots: Alexander WangSunglasses: Ray-Ban

The Look

It’s approaching the last few weeks that I can get away with wearing a leather jacket and not feel like I’m melting! This started Mango jacket has been one of my favorites so I got it! I love the shape, the texture and of course, the star details. If you’ve read any of my previous posts, you probably already know that I’m obsessed with stars. Although this exact version is no longer available, I linked a bunch of super similar versions below! I included a range of prices, so there’s something for everyone! Having a leather jacket with a subtle detail like these stars can really make a jacket. A plain jacket would be great as well, but this starred version gives it that extra uniqueness. There’s a special place in my heart for this one!

Now moving onto the dress. I encourage you all to go through your closet during this seasonal transition! I found this dress hiding in my closet, tags still on and never worn. You never know what you’ll find in the depths of your closet! I found this wrap dress at Zara a little while back thinking it would be great for a vacation or dinner. I wore it to none of the above (haha) and gave it its first debut as the feature of an edgy NYC look. It’s super comfortable and one of those pieces that I know will come in handy time and time again. Can’t go wrong with a little black dress!

Finally, we come to my FAVORITE boots of all time. Alexander Wang nailed these boots with everything from the smooth, structured leather to the silver stud piping. The platform is just high enough to give it that edgy punk look, but low enough to not be in your face. I’m truly obsessed with the design and know that I’ll find a reason to wear them no matter how hot the summer is or how cold the winter is! I’m getting slightly tanner, so gold accents like these Ray Bans will be seen more often. I love how the gold pops against my skin and gives off a warm and sparkly look.

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.
