How to style minimalist neutral outfits

Fashion is fun. Styling an outfit is an amazing way to get your creative juices flowing. But, sometimes (and for some of us), it can be overwhelming. Look, I get it. it’s a fast-paced, ever-changing industry. Trends and styles come and go in the blink of an eye. It can be too much to handle if you are dipping your toes into the pool of fashion for the first time.

I’m here to help.

In this series, I’ll give you styling advice on some of the most confusing and difficult styling areas. I’ll lay out all my tips, tricks, and hacks to help you create amazing outfits. Also, I’ll exemplify everything in three degrees of difficulty so it can be easier to see what you can do.

This week, I’ll give you all the tips and tricks for creating minimalist, neutral outfits.

What *is* minimalism?

Minimalism refers to anything that has been stripped down to its essentials, be it in design, fashion, architecture, music, etc. While the objects are reduced to their necessary elements, it doesn’t mean that they don’t have some sort of ornament, detail, or interest. It’s about things that are simple, not boring.

Minimalism has been highly influenced by Japanese traditional design and architecture.

In fashion, minimalism means having a minimal amount of essential clothing items and accessories.

Usually, when someone wants to take their style and closet this route, they create a capsule wardrobe. The modern idea of a capsule wardrobe is credited to London boutique owner Susie Faux and it dates back to the 1970s.

A capsule wardrobe is created with a limited number of pieces, in a cohesive, usually neutral, color palette, and with few seasonal pieces to add through the year.

How to Create a Capsule Wardrobe & Minimalist Outfits: Tips, Tricks, & Hacks

Now, we get to the nitty-gritty. While minimalism is all about simplicity and capsule wardrobes are practical, *actually* creating one isn’t as easy as it seems.

So, let’s start with the most important part: how do you create a capsule wardrobe?

  • First, ask yourself what do you want to wear? Really think about this when you start planning your capsule. There are a ton of capsule wardrobe articles and guides online that can lead you in the right direction, but use them as exactly that: a guide, not a template. Choose pieces that make sense to you, your lifestyle, and your fashion sense.
  • There’s no magic number of items. As I mentioned above, there are tons of articles about capsule wardrobes that give you a determined number of items, claiming that if you go past that limit, then it isn’t a capsule wardrobe. Usually, it’s the number 10. The truth is, there is no one-size fits all number that will magically apply to everyone’s needs and style. The range of a capsule wardrobe can be from about 10 to 25 items, depending on *your* specific needs.
  • Seasonal items are extra. Swimsuits, winter coats, snow boots, sandals, we all have these things. Don’t count them as items for your capsule wardrobe, keep them and make sure that whatever items you choose for your capsule wardrobe also make sense with your seasonal items. The same goes for undergarments and PJs.
  • Choose a color palette you love. The most common advice for creating a capsule wardrobe is to keep it as neutral as possible to maximize the use of the items. While in this post I chose a neutral color palette, you don’t have to do so if you don’t want to. You can add color with your coats, sweaters, and tops, and keep the bottoms in neutrals, or vice versa. (Here’s an example of a capsule wardrobe based around pinks.)
  • Keep trends to a minimum. The point of a capsule wardrobe is to keep waste to a minimum and be long-lasting, which is why classic, timeless pieces should really be the base of your closet. If you really want to add a trendy piece, ask yourself if you will keep wearing it long after it has gone out of style, and then decide if you need it or not.
  • Creativity and innovation will be your best allies. Experiment with your items, maximize the way they can be worn, and mix and match patterns and textures to create different looks or aesthetics.

My Capsule Wardrobe

As you can imagine if you follow my posts, I do not have a minimal and/or neutral closet, and I don’t usually make capsule wardrobes. I tend to rotate my closet seasonally, but I have a lot of items anyway.

For this post, I challenged myself for 10 days and created my own capsule wardrobe, in a neutral palette. I went with the neutral palette because I wanted this post to be as helpful to as many of you as possible and my usual color palette (with lots of bright colors) is not suitable for that.

To do so, I asked myself three questions: “What do I usually do every week?,” “What do I want to keep from my usual style?,” and, “What’s the weather like?”

Here’s a breakdown of the items I chose before we get to the outfits.

4 Tops & 1 Dress

Capsule wardrobe tops and dress. White t shirt, white turtleneck shirt, black turtleneck shirt, green long sleeve shirt, green knit long dress.

For this challenge, I chose 4 different tops and one dress. I figured that 5 items are an appropriate amount of tops/extra items: 1 per work day. Three of the tops are in neutral colors. I used the last top and the dress to add some color to my wardrobe.

4 Bottoms

Capsule wardrobe bottoms. Brown plaid skirt, blue denim jeans, military green cargo pants, black denim midi skirt.

Then, I picked one pair of blue jeans, a pair of cargo pants, a plaid mini skirt, and a denim midi skirt in black. All of them are neutral and are easily paired with the tops.

3 Layers

Capsule wardrobe layers. Knit red vest, beige flannel shirt, black wool coat.

The weather in my city right now is cold-ish. We are definitely leaving fall behind, but it’s not that noticeable yet. I get cold very easily, so I needed layers for my wardrobe.

For this reason, I added a black wool coat, a red knit vest, and an oversized flannel in browns and tans. I borrowed the vest from my dad.

The Accessories & Shoes

Capsule wardrobe accessories and shoes. Brown tights, black tights, black belt, black sock booties, black over the knee boots, white sneakers, canvas tote bag, rose gold tote.

For the shoes, I knew I wanted comfort and versatility. So, I picked a pair of white sneakers, black sock booties, and some black over-the-knee boots. This allowed me to create day-to-night looks, or make some outfits more put-together.

For my accessories, I kept it to a black belt, brown and black tights, a canvas tote bag, and a structured rose gold tote.

Outfit Base – White Tee & Blue Jeans

To make my life easier, I created 5 outfit bases and created two versions of each: one casual and one upgraded. This way I could choose which would fit my day or event better without losing time in the morning.

The first one I thought of was to pair my blue jeans and white t-shirt.

Outfit #1 – Casual

Minimalist neutral Outfit #1: white t shirt, blue denim jeans, beige flannel shirt, white sneakers, canvas tote bag.

For my casual take on blue jeans and a white tee, I leaned into the comfort side of it. To do so, I threw on the oversized flannel as a light jacket. Then, I went with my white sneakers. Most of the week, I work from home, but I added this canvas tote when I went out to run errands and go swimming.

The pattern and fit of the shirt practically scream fall comfort look, and the graphic on the tote adds color without overwhelming the neutral tones of the look.

Outfit #2 – Upgraded

Minimalist neutral Outfit #2: white t shirt, blue denim jeans, black wool coat, rose gold tote, black sock booties

To create an elevated version of the last outfit, I just had to swap a couple of things. I kept my base: blue jeans and a white tee. For this one, I uncuffed my jeans to give them a straight-fit look. Instead of the flannel, I put on the black wool coat. I swapped the sneakers for black sock booties and the canvas tote for the rose gold tote.

I didn’t do the different versions of the outfit bases back-to-back. So, when I first put this on, I didn’t expect it to feel much different from the casual version, but dude, was I wrong! When I saw it on for the first time, I felt like this one was very sleek, modern, and put together, and it really contrasted with the other version. It was the confirmation I needed that the items I chose were the right ones.

Outfit Base – Knit Dress

For the second outfit base, I opted for the grey/green knit dress. The dress has long sleeves and a midi length, so it’s really practical during fall and winter. It is basically an outfit in and of itself. So, I had to challenge myself to not be lazy and find creative ways of styling it.

Outfit #3 – Casual

Minimalist neutral Outfit #3: green knit dress, black wool coat, canvas tote, white sneakers

For the casual version, I put on the green knit dress. Then, to make it cozier, I wore my black wool coat. Both are long, but not the same length, so they complement each other well instead of overpowering each other.

I wore thick, ankle socks and my white sneakers, to give the outfit a sporty vibe. Finally, I chose the canvas tote because the graphic on it has a similar shade of green in it to the green of the dress, and this brings the whole outfit together

Outfit #4 – Upgraded

Minimalist neutral Outfit #4: green knit dress, white turtleneck, black belt, black sock booties

For the upgraded take, I wanted to be more creative with the dress. One of my favorite things to do when I’m stuck with an item is to wear it in a different way than it was intended. So, I decided to wear the dress as a skirt.

Next, I put on a white turtleneck shirt and used a black belt to crop the shirt and cinch my waist. Finally, I went with the black sock booties to tie the belt into the outfit.

I didn’t run errands that day, so there was no need for a bag. If I had to pick one though, I would go with the canvas tote, because I feel it ties well with the top and the dress.

Outfit Base – Denim Midi Skirt + Long-Sleeve Top

Outfit #5 – Casual

Minimalist neutral Outfit #5: green long sleeve shirt, black midi skirt, white sneakers, canvas tote bag

So, I had a black denim midi skirt and four top options if I counted the flannel. I ended up picking the green long-sleeve shirt. The vibrancy of the green balances out the black of the skirt and creates an interesting contrast. It also creates the illusion of a figure I do not have.

Next, I combined this with my white sneakers. The sneakers have green details, so they match really well. Finally, I used the canvas tote because it matched the relaxed vibe of the look.

Outfit #6 – Upgraded

Minimalist neutral Outfit #6: white turtleneck shirt, black midi skirt, black sock booties, red knit vest, rose gold tote bag, black over the knee boots

The casual version of this look was already pretty put together and awesome. For the upgraded version, I leaned into the fall/winter vibes.

First, I switched the green top for the white turtleneck shirt. Then, I layered it with the red knit vest. I tucked the vest a bit because it’s my dad’s and otherwise I would’ve been swimming in fabric. I traded the black sock booties for black over-the-knee suede boots to take advantage of the slit of the skirt. Finally, I used the rose gold tote to add a different, but still warm texture to the look.

Outfit Base – Cargo Pants + White Top

Outfit #7 – Casual

Minimalist neutral Outfit #7: white t shirt, black wool coat, cargo pants, canvas tote bag, white sneakers

This minimalist neutral outfit base is how I usually wear these pants so it wasn’t difficult to create a casual version of it. I paired the military-style cargo pants with the white t-shirt. I did a French tuck to make the combo look even more effortless. Then, I added my white sneakers.

Since it has been a bit colder with each passing day, I put on the black wool coat. Finally, the canvas tote was the perfect accessory to finish the outfit.

Outfit #8 – Upgraded

Minimalist neutral Outfit #8: white turtleneck, black wool coat, cargo pants, canvas tote bag, black sock booties

Now, how do I give the previous outfit a twist? I kept the cargo pants and black wool coat as-is. Then, I swapped the t-shirt for the white turtleneck shirt. The final change was the shoes. Instead of sneakers, I wore my black sock booties. The booties make everything sleeker and transform the look into a street-style, model-off-duty type of outfit.

I didn’t feel the need to add a bag to this one, and if I were to add one, it’s a tossup. Both would go really well with this look. If I had to choose, it would depend on what would I be doing. For example, if I wanted something more put together, I would go with the rose gold tote.

Outfit Base: Plaid Skirt + Turtleneck

Outfit #9 – Casual

Minimalist neutral Outfit #9: white turtleneck, brown plaid skirt, canvas tote bag, white sneakers, brown tights

For this look, I had my brown plaid skirt and I decided to wear it with the white turtleneck to lean into the preppy aesthetic the skirt already has. Then, I put on a pair of brown opaque tights that are the perfect thickness for days when it’s cold-ish.

For shoes, I went with the white sneakers, because I think these Adidas in particular and the shirt and skirt combo *make* the preppy look. The outfit kind of reminds me of the tennis uniform we all wore when I was in school, but with prettier colors. The bag I went with is the canvas tote, just to tone down the look a bit.

Outfit #10 – Upgraded

Minimalist neutral Outfit #10: black turtleneck, brown plaid skirt, rose gold tote bag, black sock booties, black tights

The final outfit I created is the upgraded version of the previous look. With some swaps, I went from a preppy look to a professional one.

Instead of the white top, I used a black turtleneck shirt. The sleeves of this shirt are three-quarter sleeves, so I definitely needed to wear the black wool coat. Then, I changed the brown tights for a pair of opaque black tights. Since I had gone with mostly black items, I wore my black sock booties. Finally, to add some texture and color, I used the rose gold tote.

Final Thoughts

The past ten days were both fun and practical. Since I knew what I could wear, I didn’t lose much time going through different items and combinations to land on the perfect minimalist neutral outfit for the day. I enjoyed it because it freed me up a lot, but I did miss my bright colors and patterns.

The capsule wardrobe was a lot of fun. A capsule gives you a chance to experiment and see your items beyond of what they were originally made for. Unfortunately, it isn’t realistic for me to have one. If I did, then I wouldn’t be able to continue my “I Dressed like” series here and it would narrow down my options for this “Styling 101” series drastically. They are both possible because of my style and the eclectic closet that I have.

My favorite outfits were the casual jeans and tee, the casual knit dress outfit, the red vest outfit, and the brown and black professional look. I felt so cute in all of them! They also showcased different aspects of my personal style, stripped down to their very basic elements, which was the whole point. I’m so proud and happy that I could do this and actually managed to just use these items.

Anne Hathaway Wore the Pretty Shoe Trend Everyone Will Wear With Jeans This Year

#Anne #Hathaway #Wore #Pretty #Shoe #Trend #Wear #Jeans #Year

New(-ish) fashion icon Anne Hathaway is in Paris for Couture Fashion Week, and she’s been keeping us on our toes with one incredible look after another (see here and here). One of her most casual looks of the week thus far featured a pretty (and somewhat flashy shoe trend): metallic shoes. Hathaway paired silver Western boots with wide-leg jeans and a peacoat, with the boots providing just the fashiony jolt the look needed during Couture Fashion Week.

Metallic shoes have been popping up more and more on the market and in my Instagram feed, and other chic celebrities (like Katie Holmes) have also worn the trend as of late. Not only that, but they were also worn by half of all of the models that walked in Chanel’s couture show this week (a gold cap-toe sock boot, to be exact). I happen to think that metallic shoes are the perfect match for jeans and I highly recommend investing in a pair if you’re a regular denim wearer (or not—they kind of go with everything).

Read on to see the aforementioned metallic boots in action and shop some of the internet’s chicest pairs.

11 Best Leather Wallets From Handmade To Budget-Friendly In 2023

#Leather #Wallets #Handmade #BudgetFriendly

The wallet is the window to the soul—that’s how the saying goes, right? Either way, like any accessory, the wallet you choose to carry every day says a lot about you, and the best leather wallets will say it loud and proud.

A slightly worn, stylishly scuffed, vintage number? Its carrier is an old soul (who may have a penchant for Indiana Jones). A classic, sleek design with maxed-out card pockets on the inside? That’s a man who’s all about utility. 

You may be reading this in a panic now, thinking about the last date you pulled your wallet out on and wondering what judgments were made about you at that moment, but you don’t have to. Even if you’re not clinging to your old middle-school duct tape wallet, chances are you’re still due for an upgrade sooner rather than later.

Key Takeaways

If you’re looking for your next do-it-all and then some wallet, welcome to my master list. While choosing the best leather wallets is not as easy as closing your eyes and pointing at something, it doesn’t have to be a stressful situation. Remember to consider your needs (size, carrying capacity, appearance) and your aesthetic (minimalist, colorful). Leather is a beautiful medium, worth splurging on if you’re looking to find something that will last.

Overall, I’d recommend the Bellroy Hide and Seek, it’s budget-friendly and comes in a variety of colors. But if you’re looking for that special something that will never go out of style, don’t pass on the Luca Faloni Black Bifold (you can thank me later).

Keep reading to learn about my picks for the best leather wallets for men that suit every lifestyle and aesthetic.

Bellroy Hide & Seek Wallet

Bellroy’s Hide & Seek Wallet is the best leather wallet for men just getting in on the fashion game, combining all the features you need in an everyday wallet in a cool, modern style.

Despite its slim, bi-fold design, this wallet has the carrying capacity of over 12 cards and a space for dollar bills. Its “more-than-meets-the-eye” style makes it a great everyday choice for guys on the go, as there’s plenty of space for business cards and receipts to build up, but feels barely there in your pocket. 

One thing we love? You can find this wallet in a variety of colors, from basic black and tans to pops of color like forest green, blue and orange, so you don’t have to worry that upping your accessory game means you have to do away with any pops of originality.

Reviewers have mentioned that with all that card space, more bulk can accumulate in this wallet, so if you’re someone who just needs an ID and a credit card to leave the house, you may want to look elsewhere on this list. 

Mismo Black Travel Wallet

If women have ‘little black dresses’, then the male equivalent has to be a little black wallet. There’s no easier way to spruce up a dinner or meeting outfit than with a little bit of sleek black leather, which is why Mismo’s Black Travel Wallet is the best leather wallet for men on the go who need an elegant storage solution.

You can’t be slowed down throughout your day trying to cram cards and cash in a too-small card sleeve, which is why this full-grain leather wallet uses separate sides for cards and cash, with 6 card slots and a coin purse on one side, and a full bill sleeve on the other. 

An elastic pen loop on the inside and the fact that this zips fully are unique features that make this wallet functionable as well as fashionable. The only thing to keep in mind is that this wallet is a bit larger than the others on this list, so if you’re looking for something you can forget about in your pocket this may not be your best choice. 

Campbell Cole Elm wallet

This wallet has your name all over it. Well, it’ll be on your cards at least. With its high-quality Italian veg-tanned leather and incredibly texturized outer layer, the Elm Compact wallet is definitely the best leather wallet for men who have an eye for the finer things in life.

And this wallet doesn’t just look cool. It has a minimalist bi-fold design so it fits comfortably in a pants or jacket pocket, a large back pocket for dollar bills, and easy access card holders.

Even though this wallet can fit up to 4 cards, this wallet definitely focuses on style more than utility. If you’re looking for a higher carrying capacity or any hidden pockets, somewhere else on this list might be the best leather wallet for you.

Luca Faloni Bifold Cardholder

Luca Faloni’s Bifold Cardholder is proof that luxury doesn’t have to mean opulence. This slim profile wallet is one of the best leather wallets for guys who want to invest in quality craftsmanship.

Luca Faloni wallets are made of genuine Italian leather, so even with its steeper price tag you can rest assured that you’re getting the most bang for your buck, and the three minimalist color options guarantee versatility with anything in your closet. 

This wallet comes fitted with 4 card slots and 4 sleeves that provide room for a few folded dollar bills. The Luca Faloni site recommends using the card slots for a maximum of 2 cards each, so if you’re a person who accumulates a lot of things throughout their day, you may want to look elsewhere on this list. 

Roderer blue Leather Wallet

The good people of Roderer have leather down to, well, a science. Which is why their Award Wallet is second to none in terms of both carrying capacity and style, and the best leather wallet for men require more than just the essentials. While on the outside this leather wallet looks like a slim, unassuming place to store a handful of cards and a few bills, on the inside it’s the Mary Poppins bag of wallets.

The color is second to none, yes the traditional black or brown is great for most but if you want something that stands out that much more (or really like a full monochrome moment), here’s your best bet. Plus, this wallet is handmade, lined, and has a 2-year warranty to rest your nerves.

Troubadour Pivot card case

Troubadour’s Pivot wallet lets you cash in on the trendy look of a leather wallet while committing to a minimalist look—now who wouldn’t want to take that deal? Not ideal for all your cards, this wallet is ideal when you’re out and looking to carry minimal items on you. Even better, use this as a flash business card holder while networking. 

If you’re looking for some of the best leather wallets in the game, you should be looking at Leatherology—it’s literally in their name. Their bifold wallet is the best leather wallet for men who haven’t given any thought to upgrading their wallet until reading this article. Leatherology keeps things simple on this one—no frills, no hidden pockets, just space to store your cash and cards in a few essential colors that will match anything in your wardrobe. 

This wallet also comes equipped with RFID technology, an invaluable quality in our digital age, which helps your credit card information from being picked up by accidental scans. Reviewers have noted that the dollar bill pocket of this wallet isn’t as large as they anticipated, so the cash-carriers reading this list may want to look elsewhere for their perfect fit. 

Swanky Badger Personalized Wallet

If you’re looking for a way to really make your mark (pun intended) on your accessories, look no further than Swanky Badger’s Personalized Wallet. It may just be the best leather wallet for men who want to stand out without breaking the bank.

With Swanky Badger, you can choose between black and brown, and 4 different dynamic monogram options to reflect your bold personality. With their low price tag but high style factor, they’re the perfect option for a groomsmen gift or other special occasion. 

Made of split cow leather, this wallet not only looks sleek, but is durable enough for everyday use. It boasts 8 card slots, a clear ID space, a back pocket for bills, and a zippered pouch for coins. The only thing to keep in mind with this wallet is that you’re limited to the designs Swanky Badger provides—so if you’re in the market for something completely personalized this may not be your best fit. 

Bellroy Slim Sleeve Leather Wallet

There’s nothing worse than the discomfort of a bulky wallet in your pocket as you go about your day. Which is why Bellroy’s Slim Sleeve Leather Wallet is the best leather wallet for men who only need a wallet for an ID and a card or two . This wallet takes the phrase small but mighty to a whole new level, as it can fit up to 8 cards as well as cash in an unassuming, bi-fold design you’ll barely realize you’re carrying. 

Another great spec we love about this wallet are the pull tabs included to easily slide out less frequently used items, like membership or gift cards you typically keep in the back of your wallet but don’t want to leave at home. Even though this slim wallet can fit an impressive amount, it doesn’t have a full size bill sleeve, so if you’re looking for a way to carry more cash we recommend looking elsewhere on this list. 

Givenchy black leather logo billfold

It’s important to treat yourself every now and then, and with Givenchy’s Grained Leather Wallet you can feel good that you’re splurging on something practical. This wallet is made of 100% high quality calfskin, so you can count on its durability and longevity with proper cleaning and care. The pure black goes with everything, while its 4 G silver emblem adds a flash of elegant luxury. 

You can put any skepticism about designer products not having the utility of their cheaper counterparts with this wallet as well. It has a full bill sleeve in the back and 8 card slots, the front two being notched for easier access. As you probably guessed, the only pain point here is the price tag—but if you’re going to spend a couple hundred dollars on a wallet, this is one of the best leather wallets to spend it on.

Fossil Men’s Derrick Wallet

If you’d rather keep more in your wallet than you spend on your wallet, this option is for you. Since the 1980s, Fossil has been providing people with the best leather wallets and other leather goods for quality prices, and their Derrick leather wallet is proof that they’re not stopping anytime soon. This wallet keeps things simple with its bifold design: it has space for 6 cards as well as a full-size back pocket for bills. 

This is the best leather wallet for men who want a wide range of design options for a reasonable price—you can choose from basics like vintage tan and black leather, to funky patterns and bold colors that show off your fun side. Our main suggestion with this wallet is to triple check before you buy—the inside of the wallets and storage capacity can change with the different designs, so depending on what your needs are, certain designs may not be for you.

What to look for When Buying The Best Leather Wallets For Men

Material

While you may look at this category with confusion, there are a lot of subcategories to leather that you should be considering while shopping for a wallet. You have to consider the type and breed of animal the leather is coming from, the layer of hide that’s used, the quality of tanning, etc. The type of leather your wallet is made of will affect the style, longevity, and durability of it. 

Color

When you think of a leather wallet you most likely picture only black or brown, and while basic isn’t bad, it’s not always best. Leather can come in a variety of rich, rugged colors, so it’s best to consider what matches the items already in your wardrobe. If you like a pop of color, maybe consider earth tones like forest green, mustard yellow, navy, or a burnt orange. The best leather wallets will not just just carry your essentials, bit reflect a bit of your personal style.

Capacity

While style is important, the true function of a wallet isn’t to look cool, it’s to carry things. So when you’re shopping for a wallet, always consider what you’re going to need to have with you every day. For example, the best leather wallets for men on the go may be simple leather money clips to hold their cash, while a tri-fold wallet is a better option for holding cards, cash, and anything else you may accumulate throughout the day.

Final Verdict 

Buying the best leather wallets is no easy feat, there is no way you can just waltz into any store (or domain) and magically find what you need. Make sure when buying a leather wallet, there are several factors you should be considering.

If you’re looking for something to last, the first thing should be the quality of the leather. Ideally, you’ll spend the extra bit of cash to get something made of full-grain leather, like my favorite, the Award wallet from Roderer. Remember that real leather can have slight imperfections or patterns that show up, making it all the more unique. 

The next option should be to consider what your needs are. Do you need something slim? Something with a lot of carrying capacity? Do you carry a lot of cash and need some kind of snap closure?

Hopefully, you’ve already found your next leather wallet from the list above, if you’re still searching I know that this was a great place to start. Happy hunting!

FAQ

    • Like the saying goes–if you want something done right, do it yourself. The best way to clean a leather wallet is by hand, rather than machine. With a dry paper towel, first wipe off any surface dust on the wallet. Then, apply leather cleaner in a circular motion with a soft cloth, and finish off by using a lightly damp cloth to remove any excess cleaner.

      Advertisement
      • When it comes to a leather wallet, you want to be sure you’re investing in long-term quality. In terms of style and durability, full grain leather typically makes the best leather wallets. Full grain refers to the outermost part of the animal hide, and is typically the strongest part of the hide.

        • The most important factor in the longevity of a wallet is how you care for it. The best leather wallets, ones that are made of full-grain or any other high quality leather, can last up to 10 years with proper care.

Anne Hathaway Dazzles in Sequined Leopard-Print Leggings and a Matching Minidress

#Anne #Hathaway #Dazzles #Sequined #LeopardPrint #Leggings #Matching #Minidress

On Jan. 25, Anne Hathaway wore head-to-toe sequins to the Valentino show at Paris Haute Couture Week, paying tribute to the designer in a leopard-print minidress and matching leggings. Hathaway’s husband, Adam Shulman, accompanied the “Armageddon Time” actor down the red carpet in a black-and-white ensemble layered underneath a gray herringbone trench coat.

Sparkles have been a standout trend on and off the runway this season, but Hathaway’s look was hard to miss. The minidress featured a square neckline and spaghetti straps, which were lined with two rows of silver and gold sequins. The shimmering discs appeared again on the bodice and skirt of the dress. The embellishments — composed of black, gold, silver, and brown sequins — resembled leopard spots.

The most striking part of her outfit was the coordinated pair of sequined leggings. From the hem of the dress to the curve of her heels, the intricate design created the illusion that Hathaway’s legs were painted with spots. She styled the feline-inspired look with a leopard-print clutch and matching pointed-toe pumps. On her hands, she wore silver and gold rings that complemented her drop earrings.

Last week, Hathaway attended the premiere of her new thriller “Eileen” at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, UT. Ahead of the showing, she posed in a black corset-style puffer jacket and paired the functional winter outerwear with Wolford tights and platform boots. Earlier that day, Hathaway wore the same boots with tights, a black turtleneck tank top, and a flannel Celine shacket.

Alternating between our favorite ’00s trends (the newsboy cap) and stunning sheer outfits, her style game has been impressive this season. We can’t wait to see what else the “Devil Wears Prada” star has in store for Paris Fashion Week.

Admire Hathaway’s lustrous ensemble from all angles ahead.
