I can’t help it, every season I manage to spot a new trend on the runway that I must participate in. To start, this means translating the exaggerated runway looks into more wearable street style looks.
Is it just me or are statement dresses having a major moment right now? The holiday season may be behind us but that shouldn’t stop you from putting your party dress on. I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for an excuse to throw on an oh-so-chic statement dress and making a notable entrance. Whether it’s a birthday celebration or date night, I can always find a reason to dial up the glamour.
The rule of statement-making dresses is easy; strike the perfect balance between opulence and practicality. While clean lines and simple silhouettes are always safe I would rather go bold, think revealing necklines with exposed shoulders, exaggerated ruffled detailing, feathers and form-fitting silhouettes. Make a sartorial splash by pairing your statement dress with a timeless high-heel sandal or add a cool twist and pair it with white sneakers.

I would call myself a style chameleon. And that’s because my style is a full spectrum – one day I’ll be wearing a feminine and flirty dress and the next day a full leather on leather look. This outfit is in-between the two.
I love the way this Caroline Constas skirt drapes! It is so flowy and lightweight making it perfect for the weather in LA. It also happened to pair perfectly with these Malone Souliers pumps! I wasn’t sure if I wanted to throw on the leather jacket but I ended up doing it because I love the feminine and edgy mix!

I love leather – real or faux, smooth or textured, shiny or matte I don’t discriminate. Fortunately, it’s finally starting to get cold enough to wear a full leather look in California. I decided it was time I break in one of my favorite leather jacket purchases from earlier this year – this beautiful Alexander Wang number.
Alexander Wang can do no wrong. His laid back, “model off-duty” aesthetic and edgy interpretations of casual wear really speaks to me. And, this jacket is the definition of perfection. It has the western vibes from the fringe detailing on the back without looking too cowgirl – less rodeo Cowboy and more Rodeo Drive 😂
I love the cropped length and the intricate piercings, hardware details, and scalloped chain hem. It makes the jacket so special! I styled it with the comfiest faux leather leggings from Aritzia and leather Saint Laurent leather booties for a leather on leather look. My bag of choice was a goat hair nightingale from Givenchy. I thought it added a fun and furry touch to the edgier look.
This bag always makes me smile whenever I see it. My hair was all black before I got highlights and I remember one of my friends said to me “oh my gosh Jaime this bag looks like your hair!” 😆 She wasn’t wrong…It really kinda does! haha
