Today's outfit inspiration comes from NYFW Fall 2012. One of the take home messages I got from NYFW, which finished wrapping up a couple of weeks ago, was that tweed and textural mixing will be huge for fall. I guess I got lucky when I unknowingly purchased my tweed jacket over early winter;)  

Wearing a bow and a tweed jacket together translates as ultra feminine so I wanted to bring a little bit of edge to the outfit by pairing it with leather shorts for a bit of juxtaposition. I normally wouldn't think to automatically put leather and tweed together but one of the things I love about fashion is that it inspires you to think outside the box. 

What are some ways you like to juxtapose elements of clothing?

  3. I love how you think of inspiring ways to mix up textures. I certainly wouldn't have imagined tweed with leather, but the way you've styled it is fantastic. good job :)
