Here is another affordable alternative to a crave worthy look, this time from J Crew. While hunting for fall fashion inspiration I came across this tweed skirt featured on their “Jenna’s Picks” page with encouragement to show a little skin before winter is suddenly upon us.
I was surprised to see it matched up with pointy black heels, lady like purse and a cable knit turtleneck! But you know what? It works! I love it! Inspiried by the chunky cozy textures and last glimpses of smooth skin I decided to do a little digging for items to recreate the look. Here is the breakdown from J Crew:
I began my search with the vital tweed skirt. I really like this one from ModCloth, even though, with the zipper, it leans a little edgy, but I think that fits the spirit of the look.
I have paired it with a twin cable knit turtleneck, vegan (!) low pointy heels and an oh so sophisticated jade bag. Being not the biggest fan of animal print, I took some creative license and swapped out the purse. But I found a low cost version of the leopard just incase.
