leather/faux leather jacket
Every girl needs one of these in her wardrobe. I just got rid of the one I'd had for years and hardly ever wore because it didn't quite suit my style, nor was it very comfortable. I hung onto it because I knew it was an important item to have, but now I'm looking for one I'll actually want to wear.
leather/faux leather pants
Obviously I won't be wearing these with my new jacket, but ever since last year, I've been looking for a well-fitting pair of these. I think they're such a great alternative to jeans with a slouchy t-shirt or big sweater, and they go equally well with high tops as they do with pumps. They're a new must-have.
full length jumpsuit
Yes, really. I think I've been fighting this for a while because I so want to reject the idea of them, but I've seen so many look great on other people, I'm giving in and looking for one that flatters me just as well.
crazy textured skirt
The thing with style today is that rules have pretty much gone out the window. At one point, a skirt like this probably could be considered either super fancy or just plain weird and unwearable. That's not the case anymore, and I want one.
This is another wardrobe staple that I should definitely have, but don't. I have issues with coats and their weight, and this is perfect for those spring and fall transitional times, especially when the weather can be on the rainy side. I just need to invest in one that's classic and fits.
Yet another outwear staple, and I have yet to break down and get one. As the weather inches closer to cool than to winter coat cold, this type of coat is essential. A short navy one in a nice thickness would fit the bill, and I'm keeping my eyes peeled.
block heel brown booties
Last year I bought a pair of lower heeled black booties so that if I wanted a little height during the day without killing my feet and feeling like a giant, I could have that. I ended up wearing them for day and night, and now I'd like a brown counterpart, along the lines of the rag & bone celeb favorite, but in a more human price range (hint, hint, those exact ones).
Another holdover from last year, I see these in street style and on the street in real life and still want them. They're a great way to finish off a plain outfit, and the tones that usually come in a leopard print pattern are so neutral that they're great for pattern mixing, too. I need to settle on pairs that I like, because I'm pretty picky about shoe shape and there are a lot of questionable options out there, especially in an animal print.
